New at Frequency Vintage and What I Learned about Vintage Fur/Faux

Standard

Gonna kick it off with this KILLER LEATHER TRENCH COAT!  If this super slick trench fit me, it would not be on the market.  I mean, there is no way to wear this and not be pretty sure you’re a spy. 
This is an amazing, flawless vintage piece.

$125 Frequency Vintage

And of course, gotta add a few more belts!  How better to mix up a look than with a fun, colorful pop full of vintage flare!

$7.00 Frequency Vintage

This belt fits right in with the Must have Monday: Bugging Out  post about the Critters Trend. 

 

 What I learned about fur

 $75 Frequency Vintage

I love this coat.  Just like the leather one at the top, if it was my size, you wouldn’t be seeing it here.  It is so soft, love the big collar, and the lining is beautiful.  I think dressing up a pair of jeans with this would be a great modern twist on a classic look.

It looks and feels real, the lining is luxurious, but!….the label tells it all.  It’s not marked Faux Fur, in fact it says clean by Fur Coat methods.  The give away is actually the label: Mincara.  In fact all Mincara, Intrique, Tissavel, Borgana, Glenoit and Grandella(commonly seen vintage labels) coats are faux, whether denoted on the label or not.  Some vintage sellers don’t take the extra step to research, so the more you know, the better chance of getting a really great piece, faux or fur.

Real does not always mean better.  Seriously, the Mincara coat above is awesome.  Great vintage shape, feel, warmth, look, and beautifully lined.  I have seen real pieces that are just falling apart with a much higher price tag.  So if you are in the market for a fur, maybe faux is the way to go.

Super Psychedelic Vintage Kay Windsor Dress $39.99!

Here’s a little Frequency Vintage update.  The shop has been up and running for a little over 2 weeks now and going well.  Made the first sale last Friday, a pair of vintage ankle boots, and drop those bad boys right into the mail.  Was very excited to get the ball rolling and have been trying hard to post all the new inventory more quickly.

Purchasing inventory has been an awesome process.  Shopping for yourself is great, but being able to shop for all sizes and shapes is a blast.  Possibilities are unlimited and I have gotten to bring some really great pieces into the inventory, many of which I will have a very hard time letting go, like the killer Kay Windsor dress above.  Such a unique standout piece.  Classic vintage cut contrasted with a funky pattern.

Beautiful and Rare Pier Giorgio Woven Bag $44.99.

I have got to share this piece with you as well.  Perfectly made in Italy, gorgeously woven, large Pier Giorgio bag.  The fantastic color and a super sturdy handle make this bag chic and very functional.  MWAH!

Drop those 2 great pieces into the $50 & below category as well.  Booooya!
