There are parts of being a pinup that can be a bit tricky when you live in the British countryside as I do, in a village so small it has less inhabitants by half than most high schools have students. I live around 30-40minutes away from my two nearest ‘big’ towns that would have decent thrift and vintage stores, but having grown up on a dairy farm tucked away on the outskirts of two parishes I still have that farm girl mentality that I don’t go ‘into town’ but every once in a while when it’s needed. For that reason I’ve never developed good vintage shopping skills, because I just don’t go that often or know where to start, and thus the access to true vintage in my life is pretty limited.
So I was pretty pleased to recently come into contact with Vecchio Vintage, a website offering a curated selection of vintage clothing and accessories, because sites like Vecchio Vintage do all the hard work for you; they scout and discover all the best vintage, and bring it together into one handy dandy online boutique where you can easily filter and sift through the selection without having to physically sift through endless clothing racks just looking for that rare diamond amongst the ruff(les.) See what I did there? 😉
