Thrift Vintage vs Fast Fashion

Thrift Vintage vs Fast Fashion

“Cute shirt!”

“Thanks! It’s vintage.”

We all want to stand out from the crowd – and our clothes are the first impression we can make on someone. Our outfits are the frontline in expressing our own unique personal style. Vintage shopping is your gateway to finding your individual look – classy, edgy, comfy, punky – whatever the style, you’re craving something fresh, something cool. You’re looking for retro graphics, and high quality, lasting fabrics. You’re looking for the opposite of fast fashion!

Hey, your clothes don’t have to be run of the mill. When you shop Thrift Vintage Fashion, you have access to unique outfits and one-of-a-kind styles. Dipping into your closet won’t be boring and blah. You won’t run the risk of showing up to a party wearing the same threads as your arch-nemesis. Vintage designs will always be superior to the new, mass-produced styles found on Shein, Forever21, Zara, and H&M.  You’re one of a kind, baby, and you don’t have to go broke to attain the look you're going for!

We’ve gotta ask - what’s in your wallet? When you buy fast fashion, it’s often in tatters within a single season. That’s not kind on your pocketbook. We think you can be frugal AND fashionable by shopping vintage and getting more bang for your buck. Vintage clothes are made from higher quality fabrics than fast fashion. And at Thrift Vintage Fashion, we handpick designs and styles you won’t find in big box stores at the mall - and we take this task very seriously! We’re trying to change the world by increasing your wardrobe and decreasing your carbon footprint. It’s a win-win!

So, do you know what’s up with fast fashion? When the term hit the industry in the 90s and 00s, it described the business model that took an article of clothing from concept to completion to the customer's closet in just 15 days!! Two weeks won’t get you quality or thoughtfully tailored fits, and we’re talking problematic labor practices mixed with poorly made fabrics and a standard of sizing that doesn’t really fit… anyone?

With vintage, you know what’s up. We’re not repeating the manufacturing process to get an outfit you’ll wear for a few months. We’re getting a second life out of quality clothing and you can expect it to last. And last. And last.

Vintage clothes have longevity, and personality, too. Your favorite vintage finds become staples of your wardrobe, staying in rotation for ages, or becoming your go-to outfit when you want to feel comfortable or cute. You want interesting options when assembling a LOOK, and sometimes you want it to be a no-brainer. We handpick from a large collection of vintage clothing, choosing quality items that come together to make kickass outfits.

What can you expect out of your Thrift Vintage Fashion order? Everyone loves getting a package in the mail. This one’s a surprise mystery box of fashion and style, infinite combinations of rock tees, sports sweats, Disney shirts, cartoon graphics, brand names, flannels, pro sports jerseys, and so much more. Combine that with our classic vintage denim jeans and jackets and viola! you’ve got tons of cool outfit options just a click away.
