Vintage Etsy Fashion

For some reason, my latest obsession is combing Etsy for vintage fashion treasures. At first I searched for designer labels (and yes, there is even a bit of Chanel to be found for fairly good prices), but gradually I grew more interested in the non-designer stuff. Because - believe it or not - there are a lot of amazing vintage pieces that look like couture (or at least they look really cute). And they're cheap!

You wanna see 'em? I'll post 'em!

Clockwise from top right:

Gold ruffle jacket, $42 Cherry Pick Vintage. Okay, so I'm not brave enough to wear this. Maybe you are?

Leather motorcycle jacket, $36 Salvage Life. That's right - a mere $36 for a leather jacket! I had to force myself to share this with you, because I selfishly wanted to add it to my own wardrobe. In my defense, it was only because I kind of want to look like this girl.

Layered cocktail dress, $45 Tres Chic Vintage. Simply gorgeous.

Mod mini tent dress, $60 '80s Diva. Isn't it cute?

And now for shoes:

Blue suede shoes, $54.60 Artinsilk. They may be blue suede, but they're decidedly un-Elvis-y. Look at that ribbon embroidery! And the shape is so this season!

Cream round button ankle boots, $50 Revival House. Oooh!

Black Italian leather boots, $85 Cherry Pick Vintage. Very Chanel! J'adore!

Metallic Pumps, $22 Salvage Life. Patricia Field used metallic faux snakeskin in her Payless collection. And since she can do no wrong, it must mean metallic faux snakeskin is hot!

And now for bags:

Clutch with rare map design, $7.00 Brugmansia. I adore this. It's so charming, and so cheap!

Mesh silver clutch, $25.00 Good Eye. Very glam.

Faux leather purse, $15.00 Revival House. The bow makes it oh-so-sweet.

Cherry brown doctor bag, $24.00 Allen Company, Inc. A deep, rich color in a stylish shape = yum!

Well, that's all for now! If you saw something you liked, remember that these are one-of-a-kind pieces. Don't wait for someone to swoop in and buy your vintage treasure before you can!

Hey Kori, I was browsing Etsy the other day and the massive amount of things you can look at kind of intimidated me. How do you find such great items? Do you just spend time sifting through everything or is there a better way to hone in on specific items? I find that I look for vintage dresses and I run into a lot of patterns and slips. I just don't have time to go through 200 pages of stuff!
