Vintage – Defying Dull

Vintage is never boring.  That is what I am thinking today.  Sometimes I see commercials for modern clothing and I wonder what the point of even creating the clothes was.  Oh, you are featuring bright colors this season?  But the color is the only interesting detail on the dress.  What exactly was the point?  What was the inspiration?  I understand that a wardrobe needs a few basic pieces…but why can’t those basic pieces at least be interesting?  Take the little black dress – why not have a neat neckline.  Lace or ribbon or a bow as trim.  Probably because these extra details cost extra and much of modern fashion seems to aim only at being cheap.  I don’t need cheap clothing that is not well made and lacks innovation or interest.   Look to vintage for an idea of what quality should look like.
