Still it can be a bit hard to wear genuine vintage clothes everyday, for one thing they are very delicate, particularly the clothes of the 1930s and as I'm definitely a bit broader then the average women of the 1930s I find it pretty hard to find clothes from this era that fit me. My compromise is to try to wear at least one vintage thing every day, which brings me to this outfit post. Over our summer break my husband and I went to the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx, established in 1891, and I decided to wear my favorite vintage hat, a 1930's straw number with red flowers from Adeline's Attic on Etsy. I think it went pretty well with my red dress, bought on sale at Anthropologie a year ago and it really highlighted the dress's 1940s details. Most important the outfit was comfortable and the hat provided sun protection.
Since I'm very new to the whole vintage blogging thing and relatively new to the vintage clothing thing I'm wondering how other vintage style lovers approach the modern verses authentic issue. Do you stick scrupulously to genuine vintage pieces or do you wear modern reproductions as well? Do you mix eras? Do you wear vintage every day or just on special occasions?
