I Love Vintage Amsterdam: retro style fashion

19 August 2014

For everyone who loves vintage, but not old clothes!

Every since I’m a teenager I LOVE vintage clothes. And I still do! Especially the craftsmanship of how the clothes are made. Now I’m older I only want to wear the most beautiful vintage pieces. Pieces that don’t show traces of heavy usage by its first owner.

This is where I Love Vintage in the city center of Amsterdam comes in handy! This store is specialised in vintage and retro style clothes. The only difference is that everything is brand new and that they have all sizes available (except for the hand bags which are real vintage). YAY! I Love Vintage in Amsterdam is located at the Prinsengracht and you recognise the store by the cool neon letters sign.

From the perfect skirt for this season to super cute dresses with lace collars and jewellery. I Love Vintage sells cool brands like Lindy Bop, Bettie Page and their own brand Bannou. The last one is deisgned by I Love Vintage founder Faranak Mirjalili and made in Europe from only natural materials. Really like that idea because they have full control on a fair process in the factories and production.

I Love Vintage is also the right address for a Charleston dress if you have a roaring ’20ies party!

If you don’t live in Amsterdam, don’t worry! You can also order the collection online at I Love Vintage website.
