Linda Lous Funky Finds - As long as I can remember I have always had a passion for vintage clothing and I love to look a different with the way that I dress.
I decided that I could share my taste in vintage clothing with people that appreciate the look of clothing made decades ago.
SO....... Linda Lous Funky Finds was born 5 years ago.....
I believe women who choose vintage attire have a unique personality that involves style, beauty,and their clothing tends to be a bit on the edgy side.
The detail and craftsmanship of vintage clothing is a work of art. It's an investment for your wardrobe that never goes out of style.
Today's fashion style is always taken from the re-cycled ideas made with cheap fabric and sloppy stitching.( wow, can you feel my passion!) that falls apart by the end of the season
The beautiful vintage clothing that is over 25 years old and still looks good is my idea of a new outfit.
I was guilty of wearing jeans, tennis shoes, and a tee-shirt too much of the time, but, once i began to wear vintage dresses, skirts, hats, and flat shoes. No heels for me. I realized how many complements I got, and inquiries as to where to purchase the items. I cant wear anything too tight, or else i'm pulling it down, moving it around, or taking it off. I don't know how women wore all the tight under-garments that held them in.
I wear vintage from all eras and I mix them all together. There are no rules for dressing in vintage items!
I always let women know that no rules are involved in wearing a 1940's hat and a 1960's jumpsuit together.Please don't be intimidated by the idea that you have to learn all about vintage before you invest in it.
Try to decide the decade that you love, and purchase a few items. You will be surprised by how timeless you look. Vintage clothing is always an investment .The price of a well made classic piece always increases in value over time.
Many of the vintage clothes are handmade. That is the reason you should know your measurements.
