I Like Vintage (again) ...

I love, love, love, love, love this vintage adidas t-shirt. It's that perfectly faded blue and fits and falls so perfectly on her. There was a time when I used to love thrift shopping. It was fun, cheap and so exciting when you'd find that "perfect piece." One time I reluctantly accompanied my mom shopping and went next door into this thrift shop where I found a mint condition, vintage Oleg Cassini yellow trench coat that fit me perfectly! I was ecstatic! But then at some point I did a 180 and had no desire to thrift shop whatsoever. Suddenly I was allergic to anything vintage–it was strange. I think I've stayed away long enough that now I'm inspired again to do the thrift. Especially when I see tee's like this.

I love it!! I used to have a whole slew of T shirts from my mom from the 70s and I have no idea what has become of them. I love the feel, smell and texture of the washed out letters on them!

I love it too, I got a yellow one from my mom, it was the best hand-me-down I've ever gotten.
Yay for "thrifting"!

this is a great shirt, you said it perfectly. i hope you find joy in thrifting again! it's like a treasure hunt, but it's also easy to get burned out when treasures are hard to find.

Love the shirt! I have a problem going to thrift stores, I just don't have a good eye for things, so when I have friends like Julia come to town, I take full advantage of their skills! :)

Caitlin said...

my (new) blog is mostly dedicated to thrift store shopping, my favourite past time and hobby. it's more of an addiction, really. i never ever get tired of finding the perfect pair of shoes! i hope you can reignite your love of it...

La Feem said...

One does have to be in the mood to thrift but the treasures are wonderous!!! You would look great in this tee.

I find thrift shopping a bit overwhelming, but I really want to keep trying. I don't know if some of my brother's old stuff counts as vintage -- I just loved his well-worn t-shirts and pajama pants. They were so comfy.

I love to thrift shop. It's time consuming though(trying to find that great treasure) and my 15 month old isn't very tolerant of such long shopping expeditions...Anyway, i love the colour of the tee, and the fabric looks light and soft so it's perfect for the summer. I am also loving the slightly tousled bun that's pulled up:).

Great shirt and I love this photo--so casual but so chic!

Catalina said...

Oh! this looks amazing! love to have that too:)

ephemerette said...

Oh wow. I had a large collection of vintage addidas stuff when i was a teen going through by Blur/faux mod phase. Sadly all gone now..

Erin @ Slipcover Your Life said...

that shirt looks so soft probably from countless washings! i still sleep in vintage tees, so comfy!

Dennise said...

I can so relate. I went through a phase where I was only shopping at thrift stores and so then poof! I burnt out and refused to go thrifting for awhile. I've slowly eased my way back into it but still not as hardcore as I used to be.

Love this Tee and her hair. So stylish and simple!
