I Want To See Your Reworked Vintage!

So I recently posted a video in which I shared some of my favorite reworked vintage pieces (if you missed it, check it out here), and I was so excited by your responses! I love hearing that other people share a passion for vintage clothing. One reader, who commented as “Sing”, even submitted a picture of her reworked pieces, and they’re just gorgeous. I mean look at her! Lady, I may not know your name, but I love your picture! Anyways, this reader’s creativity inspired me to pose a challenge to you all: SHOW ME YOUR REWORKED VINTAGE! Leave pictures of your favorite vintage pieces in the comment section (you just might get a shout out in my next video)!

    My name is Alicia Jay I absolutely love vintage. Being 6’6″ (yes…you read it right) I never thought I could wear it. It’s hard enough to find clothes that are made now let alone vintage. But one day I went into my Mom’s closet, reworked some of her vintage and it was a match made in heaven! Now I wear pieces in my posts on my website TallSWAG.com. Here is one of my favorite vintage posts: http://www.tallswag.com/home/2012/12/10/think-vintage.html Vintage and tall…a beautiful combination:-)

    I wonder how old something has to be to be considered vintage?I keep thinking about my mother’s dirt cheap plaid dress that I would like to recreate for myself 40 years after I last saw her in it.

    Tracee, you are gorgeous. You are one my fashion icons. I wish I had a pocket sized TER just to tell me what to wear sometimes. I consider myself an eclectic fashio person. I just love beautiful clothes and I know what I like when I see it. These two pieces, the black floral dress and orange dolman sleeve shrug are two of my favs. The dress belonged to my Aunt Margie who like myself did not let her fluffiness keep her from being fabulous. The orange shrug is one of my finds and everytime I wear either piece I receive many compliments. So excited to be able to share this with you.

    Ok, here we go again. I’m following directions now, lol!

    Hey, there! Here are a handful of my favorite re-worked vintage pieces. 1) My vintage canary & creme blazer altered into 3 quarter length sleeves – about $5 bucks. 2) Double trouble friends rocking two reworked vintage pieces: Lizzie Leral, belted her fabulous vintage flowered smock – so so fresh! My tailor altered this pastel colored plaid blazer I purchased in Chicago, into 3 quarter length sleeves (again) haha! I think I snagged it for $10 bucks. 3) One of my ABSOLUTE favorite finds in Austin, TX was this blousy orange & black, long-sleeved and embroidered cotton blouse. I could not leave the store without it because it had crazzzzzy potential. Oh, I think I paid $25 bucks for this little number. Anyway, I took it to my tailor in NY to cap the sleeves, and rocked it with a belt. I was very happy with the outcome! +Michi Chassagne – NYC

    Hello

    My name is Napoleon.
    I just inherited a multimillion dollar estate from my uncle Arne who was
    tragically killed in Japan while climbing a mountain. My uncle Arne created and amassed a fortune
    while working in international securities for Wang computer industries of China
    and Hewlett Packard. My uncle also love
    the ladies and two of his many mistresses have laid claim to his entire
    fortune. They have acquired the best
    legal representation that money can pay for.
    I just happen to work on a hourly wage job making just 10 dollars an
    hour. I need your assistance to obtain
    legal counsel the estate of my late uncle Arne is valued to be at more than three
    hundred million dollars “$300,000,000.00.” With an investment of $50,000.00 we can
    obtain the legal counsel necessary where I may get the estate left to me in a will
    signed by my late uncle Arne three years ago.
    I would be willing to share 33% of the $300,000,000.00 dollar fortune. With whoever can help we obtain what is rightfully
    mine.

    Hello! I LOVE vintage pieces. Here are a few of my faves:
    Pic 1: Vintage mink cap. I like to twist it to the side to turn it into a beret.
    Pic 2: Vintage Saks Fifth Ave coat. I needed to sew some buttons on it and now it looks brand new (heart palps)!
    Pic 3: Vintage sparkly two piece. The skirt was a little snug so I let it out and it also needed a button.
    Pic 4: Vintage summer dress (this print is tres wacky!) The dress was a little big and I also had to fix the lining.
    Pic 5: Vintage high-waisted pleated trousers. These pants make me feel like Katharine Hepburn (I die) ! I had to give these pants some TLC…they were kinda dirty.

    which is designing and reworking vintage!

    one of which is designing and reworking vintage!

    Here are a Few of my most recent creations:
    1) Dress I wore to the Grammys! This was an old 1960′s gown that was
    quite worn. I added cutouts to the bodice, a front slit and gold
    trim,
    2) 70′s dress reworked for a client. I took the hem up, penciled the
    skirt, lowered the neckline and added a peplum. This is probably one
    of my favorite dresses because its so versatile

    Would LOVE to make something for you one day, miss Tracee!! You are
    definitely a style inspiration of mine :-)
