Vintage shops are often hidden and under the radar, which is what makes them so special and where you will find the most unique pieces from both the 21st and 20th century.
There are quite a few 'gems' in Brisbane's CBD, where you have the chance to find classic, eclectic, groovy or feminine designs that speak to your personal style and that will add an extra 'something' to your wardrobe. That 'something' is indefinably you, perhaps you cannot quite explain why, but these are the pieces that define your style and speak to your inner self.
The beauty of vintage shopping, is that it tests your self awareness of who you truly are. There are no 'this is what you should buy' perfectly merchandised displays, or 'this is currently on trend' sales tactics, it is 100% up to you to actively search (or dig through!) for your gems - and these are the pieces that will make your wardrobe undeniably YOU!
For example, I once bought a vivid purple sequinned v-neck top for $30 from a vintage store. Who knows why, my wardrobe certainly was not calling for a 100% sequinned top, but it just spoke to me and my style. I have worn that top now numerous times on nights out, or at events, with jeans, tailored shorts or a-line skirts and it receives the most positive attention!
