Coupled with their indie credentials, their vast vintage wardrobes and enviable bone structures, the band have been targeted with the same fash-pack fan fervour normally reserved for icons such as Alexa Chung and the Olsen twins.

Oct 14 Only Collectors and Dealers Need to Worry About Authentication. The Rest of Us Just Need to Look Great!
I don’t know about you but I can’t pay what collectors and dealers are willing to pay.
So, the only thing I worry about is the price, and if I’ll look fashionable carrying the Vintage Bag
I customized my vintage bag.
In the fast pace fashion of today, an accessory like a vintage bag can give us women the finishing touch to our outfit. I customized my vintage bag.
I needed just that…the finishing touch. A vintage bag as my accessory. Not just any vintage bag. The “perfect” vintage bag.
I discovered my “perfect” vintage bag by customizing it with my own touch. I collected antique objects such as antique lace, ribbon, a brooch, pins, chains, and/or clips. Adding these items gave me the personalized feel I was looking for. As a result I felt a sense of individuality and accomplishment, and I looked fashionable.
“Yesterday’s objects are today’s subject!”
Here is a video clip, thanks to Christie’s and TimesOnline, that gives some advice on how to tell if your Vintage Bag is authentic.
Next time we’ll consider whether anybody cares and if so who.
Aug 24 Look who’s into Vintage Bags
I really like the vintage styles that celebrity Alexa Chung is always wearing.
Fashion trends come and go. And I have discovered that a vintage bag can make all the difference.
I have a hard time keeping up with the trends. But, I’m always interested. I love be fashionably dressed. Looking my best boosts my confidence, and energizes my spirits.
So, I watch what people are wearing.
You really don’t have to be an expert, just recognize what you like. I discover what I like when I see it.
I’ve noticed the vintage style that celebrities like Lilly Allen and Alexa Chung are always wearing. And I like it. They really rely on the accessories to define the “look”.
My approach to shopping has changed entirely. I focus much more on choosing clothes that will accessorize well. That is, I’ve learned to get the look I want with the accessories not the clothes themselves. It works too. I didn’t have to change my complete wardrobe when I discovered the vintage look, I just gathered new accessories. It’s a very budget friendly approach.
Of the accessories, handbags make the biggest difference. And in this category a vintage bag is a pure delight! They are simple, well designed, and match all kinds of style combinations.
When I need to look good and feel good, I clothe around my favorite Chanel vintage bag. It creates a sense of beauty and pure luxury that is simply intoxicating.
