The Three R's of Fashion
Vintage style brings new shopping trends
Any girl would jump at the opportunity to get her hands on a designer piece or the newest item a store has to offer, but with the strong trend of vintage looks from the last few decades gaining popularity, a new and more affordable way to shop is on the rise.

However, while some finds can be just right, it's to be noted that many will require some snipping, altering, or tailoring to avoid looking like you raided your grandmother's closet. Creativity is a must when it comes to thrifting or vintage shopping and opens more doors, rather than the closed mind approach of searching for a "to die for" vintage piece that already fits and has no concerning applique or puffy sleeves so large you might float away. With an open mind, an overdone prom dress can become a cute, sleek skirt, or a loose knit sweater into a beach-worthy crop top.
The possibilities are endless, and this trend certainly puts a new and stylish spin on recycling.
