Vintage vs. Retro. A debate to many. But how is "vintage" and "retro" actually defined? What makes something "vintage" or "retro"? How I always saw it, and how many others see it, is that vintage is something made prior to the 1970's and retro is an item made from the 1970's and beyond. Others may see at as vintage being an item that has that old, almost antique feel, where you might find it in your grandma's trunk in the attic, where retro is an item that is outdated or out of fashion. Define it how you will, I stick with the dates.
Moving along, there's nothing better than a great vintage find at a thrift store. I found this little gem of a dress at a place called Mustang Exchange here in Las Vegas, just right across the street from our campus. I was actually with Lia when I found it. It caught my eye and I knew right then and there I had to have it. To believe it was merely $15! It's just so unique and wonderful, I'd wear it everyday if it was socially acceptable. The tag said it was from the 1960's, and I believe it with how mod it looks. And just look at the cutout at the sleeves! So rad, I can't even handle it. I decided to make this an all-vintage outfit with the accessories, except silly me forgot I have vintage sunnies and just used vintage/retro-inspired sunnies from H&M. There's not too much focus on the accessories, because it's really all about the dress.
Since there are literally holes in the dress, we thought we'd have some fun with it. How can you not with this dress? And check out the beautiful Red Rock background.
