{Living vintage}

Happy week ladies!

Today, while I was visiting some amazing vintage website I remembered the vintage store I’ve visited in Florence few months ago… I asked to the gentle lady that worked there if she was ok to let me shoot some pics for my blog and she said yes, unfortunately I’ve lost the card of the store…I don’t remember the name but I know how to get back there!

Usually, Vintage store have that particular smell like mothball and old clothes closed in a wardrobe for so long… That store, instead, had nothing to do with typical old style vintage store. It was bright, everything in order and clean… Beautiful dresses, bags, bijoux…

I have a beutiful “relationship” with vintage store and flea market… Two of my fav winter coats come form one of those stores… My red coat and the yellow with white square… I had it , both, for cheap!

I love old clothes and old things… They have a soul. I like the idea that those amazing object belonged to someone else. I star to imagine their history…

Unfailing little black dress …

Old bottons… I have a huge collection…

I love vintage . I love old things, I love to stay hour and hour poking around, hunting around to find something special… What I love the most are the coats: I’m looking for a new one… the hunt is open!!!

And you? What do you look for when in a vintage store? bags, jewels, dresses… what?

  • I adore vintage too!
    therefore I love this blog and the images shown!

  • I love that little black dress!

    I love vintage, too. There are some great stores in Chicago - I love simple pieces that I can accessorize!

    While finding clothes is always the agenda, I also look for old books, particularly the classics! You know, so that when there is a complete digital meltdown I'll have something to read! ;o)

    anche io, è già da qualche anno che apprezzo molto di più il vintage piuttosto che le cose nuove...veramente se si ha tempo di cercare, si possono trovare degli articoli super interessanti...ho pochi pezzi vintage, i miei preferiti sono un abito Chloè degli anni 70 in jersey e un abito di Roberta di Camerino sempre in jersey con effetto stampa trompe l'oeil...mi piacciono un sacco...che favola i due cappotti che hai fotografato, veramente belli! senti ma questo negozietto si trova al di là del ponte? andando verso fuori dal centro di Firenze?

  • it's gorgeous... good job! vintage definitely has an appeal that new items never do. I've been thinking of going back to florence some day, I hope I can spot this shop.

  • How lovely. THese are all gorgeous. You have superb taste!

    Grazie Gaia, sei stata gentile a venire fino da me a darmi la risposta!

  • Hi Gaia,

    Here I am checking out your corner of the world and i love it!
    I'm a great fan of vintage as well and I love looking for little treasures on flea markets and second hand shops. I do take pics in shops as well although I don't always dare to ask for permission first :-).
    Great blog. Can't wait to explore more!

  • I looove your red coat!!! and I'm glad you enjoyed my recent post. coffee actually wasn't half bad. Except that I cant really figure out what this guy wants you know? To get to know me or just... if you know what I mean :S I'll find out, hopefully sooner than later. This dating a person I just met at a hockey game is so new to me!
