Making Memories @ The Manhattan Vintage Show

I have gone to the Manhattan Vintage Show a few times in the last few years but recently have decided to take my daughter with me. She is eleven now and really enjoys looking at all the vintage just as much as I do. So this past weekend my little one and I explored all the booths together. To my surprise I noticed she began to gravitate to all the dresses from the 1950's and early 1960's which ironically (maybe not so much) are the eras that I gravitate too. Although to be honest I love all the decades. I only cringe when its items from the 1980's and 1990's only because those were the decades I spent my childhood and young adult years and frankly I don't need to repeat those decades.

I usually don't score much at this event because the clothes are not usually in my size and I have a a very particular aesthetic but I just like being able to see and touch the vintage as usually a lot of my scores are found online. Theres something special about being able to look around and really immerse yourself into vintage clothing.

I did score a head scarf in my palette colors but its my daughter who walked away with a gorgeous pink 1950's dress. Her first piece of vintage clothing and she looked so pretty in it. The best part of this event was making these special memories with my daughter. Sharing with her something I love and watching her develop her own connection to vintage and fashion. It was a pretty neat day.

  1. I love that your daughter is getting into vintage!!

    Also, I too cringe when I see 80s and 90s items at vintage events, shops, etc.
