How many times have you tried hunting for vintage/retro clothing? Was it successful? I have and guess what… I have bought one piece..ONE. The struggle is real!
I LOVE vintage clothing! What I really love about them… is the fact that they contain someone’s personal history…I find myself wondering about their lives. I can never look at a garment… without thinking about the woman who owned it. How old was she? Did she work? Was she married? Was she happy?… I look at these exquisite shoes, and I imagine the woman who owned them rising out of them or kissing someone…I look at a little hat like this, I lift up the veil, and I try to imagine the face beneath it… When you buy a piece of vintage clothing you’re not just buying the fabric and thread – you’re buying a piece of someone’s past.
So I came across Dreamland on Instagram… I fell in love immediately. There it was, hundreds of already sourced clothing from vintage shops all over. They hustle to find you the best vintage clothing, hand picked from all over the country. Straight from the 70’s – 90’s.
They sell at vintage markets in and around Cape Town and occasionally online.
You obviously have to know that the thing with vintage clothing, is that it won’t always be in the perfect condition. It tells a story and it’s the way you rock it that makes all the difference.
Here I am rocking a pair of their shades and a choker. These two goods are not vintage themselves but they do sell them and they compliment the vintage clothing sooo good.
JUST GO CHECK IT OUT YOURSELF!
