My latest addition to the vintage clothing collection is this gorgeous 1960s velvet dress with organza ruffling and a plunging neckline.
It is really long and goes right to the floor on me. I’m quite tall too.
The velvet is thick and heavy, very different to the fabric you’d get in modern clothes. The organza is so fragile, almost like tissue paper.
I’m not really sure why I love old clothes and what the point is of collecting them. Sometimes I think it’s a silly obsession of mine. It’s not like I’m going to open a museum of clothes from the 20th century or anything. They don’t really get worn out either – I just try them on every now and again. Is this a bit pointless and absurd? What do you collect that seems a bit pointless at times?
