*« ~ Vintage essence ~ »*

Since long ago, I’ve been really attracted to Vintage Culture, and I’m really amazed at how many great “old time” clothing selections and other items you can find in Second Life lately. I’m a fan right now of Vintage Fashion and Styling, but this isn’t just a recent trend for me.

When I was a little girl, I’ve loved the old items my grandmother held in her “treasure closet.” It was full of little old flowered AVON boxes, Eau de Cologne and cookie boxes made of metal. She sometimes let me read her old-fashioned magazines with pictures of models wearing all kinds of colors: 1920s-50s clothing styles for women, men and children — everything with a particular smell of another era.

Yes, I admit it; I’ve been loving Vintage Items and clothing since I was a child… this is why I want to post about it. For those who want to know more about the meaning of the word Vintage, according to thefreedictionary.com used as a noun, it means “The year or place in which a wine is bottled”, “A group or collection of people or things sharing certain characteristics”, “A year or period of origin” and “A length of existence; age.” As an adverb, it refers to something “characterized by enduring excellence, appeal, and importance” and, “of a style or method formerly in vogue.” Referring specifically to Fashion world,“Vintage clothing” is a generic term for garments originating from a previous era.

Fashion design, throughout history has turned to previous eras for inspiration. Vintage clothing retains and increases in value due to the fact that it is genuinely from a past era. In addition, authentic garments are made one at a time, with enough attention to detail to create an item that has long-lasting value. There are many synonyms to refer to vintage clothing (retro, old-fashioned, antique), but it is well-known that in the fashion world, old-time clothing always comes back, and this “old and new” melting becomes a truly “Vintage” style. I hope you like Vintage Culture as much as I do. Let’s stand-out in the fashion industry inspiring ourselves — our imagination, and creativity in the best of all times.

The best thing about aging —

Jesus also said, “The Kingdom of God is like a farmer who scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, while he’s asleep or awake, the seed sprouts and grows, but he does not understand how it happens. The earth produces the crops on its own. First a leaf blade pushes through, then the heads of wheat are formed, and finally the grain ripens. And as soon as the grain is ready, the farmer comes and harvests it with a sickle, for the harvest time has come.”
