DIG THRU YOUR RELATIVES CLOSETS, DRAWERS, ATTIC BOXES!
At least that is what I do when I visit home.
Half of my favorite clothing belonged to a relative of mine at some point in time.
I had this moment where my grandmother was showing me old photos and I realized I was wearing the same jacket as my great Aunt Laura was wearing in the photo! Who by the way—was High Fashion Femme all the way to the end. Blue eye shadow, electric green skirt suit, and heels til she was 94! I can only hope to embody a little bit of her when I wear her clothes.
My first 4 family vintage loves:
Dads vintage Addias track suits
Moms 80’s leather jackets
Brothers old sweaters
Amazing 60’s jewelry from my Aunts.
It’s shopping for free and the bonus is a sense of familial nostalgia when worn.
As inspiration for your own closet digging adventure– I’ve included photos of my favorite gems. My mother’s amazing motorcycle jacket, my Great Aunt Laura’s fur jacket and her crazy necklace that looks like an old school door knocker and my grandma’s rad vintage key pin.
