Want to create a fantastic vintage wardrobe but not sure where to start? After perusing hundreds of photos of classic icons, I have seen just about everything, from elaborately jeweled gowns to flowered skirts. I could make a list that would be ten miles long—but I have narrowed the list down to these essentials that I think will be the foundation of your vintage flair, taking you from summer to winter. They will anchor whatever other fashionable pieces you already have in your closet (plus a few extra bonuses to populate your purse & dresser!).
Here is a short list of 10 absolute must-haves to channel your inner starlet, whether she most resembles Elizabeth Taylor, or Grace Kelly, or Audrey Hepburn, or Marilyn Monroe.
Most of these have been tried and tested by myself, or better yet, the celebrated starlets that used them.
Several notes in the spirit of doing the right thing... the celebrities mentioned didn't necessarily endorse any of the products listed here, but based upon my research I do believe they really loved at least a few of things. That said, if you buy from any of the links included above rather than going straight to the vendor site from Google or another search engine, I get a portion of your purchase at no cost to you. :)
