Hello and happy WEDNESDAY vintage & fashion lovers!!!

I say “vintage” and “fashion” lovers because more and more I’m learning about the art of fashion trends so that I can be inspired on just what to wear vintage NOW.

I believe that if your heart tells you so, that you should wear whatever it is that you feel like at the moment. I will always stand by this vintage fashion philosophy, because I believe that it is with experimentation and an open minded “dare to wear” attitude that we can explore ourselves and the world around us as we build our character and inspire others with this confidence.

Lately, my heart has been whispering the wonders of designer fashion trends. Perhaps it was after filming on-trend-vintage at Mafalda Boutique, or touching gorgeous designer vintage jewelry at FROCK NYC.

Whatever the motivation, my inspired inclination to understand the ins and outs of modern day trends continues to bubble and blossom. So in light of upcoming New York Fashion Week and tomorrow’s debut of a stylish September, I wanted to share with you 6 fall fashion trends that you can buy right now vintage.

I added up the cost to share what it takes to update your wardrobe with 6 simply stunning vintage pieces that look so good you’d think they were new — and the grand [but not so grandiose] total came out to be $233.25.

From pretty polka to luxurious lace to magical mustard [the color, not the condiment!] keep reading after the jump to see what vintage available to buy on Etsy I recommend, and for some of your own inspired motivation to shop fall trends the vintage way!
