How To Bring Vintage Up To Date

How To Bring Vintage Up To Date

"There is a fine line between fashion-forward and style-inadequacy when it comes to incorporating vintage items in a current wardrobe. Fashion does have cycles and certain elements come back, but never in the same form, shape, color or texture. The easiest way to bring a vintage piece you love up to date is by adding trendy contemporary element, accessory and/or hardware. This gorgeous, vintage tapestry and leather bag was salvaged for $12 from on-line Goodwill store. It was in perfect condition, no loose threads on the lining, nor scratches on the inside pocket’s zip. But the handle’s shape and length are not something you’d see nowadays. I simply removed the old hardware and the handbag’s handle and added long golden chain as a shoulder strap. Check out the easy steps."
