Vintage Clothing Imposters

Ok, usually I'm quite the vintage snob.

I hate it when new clothes try to look "vintage", because it defeats the whole point!
I want the real thing!

Anyhow, when I saw this new little dress from H&M, I had to give in.
I love it.

No, its not real vintage, but it is unique...and adorable...and it doesn't shout out, "Im trying so hard to look vintage, when deep down Im just trendy crap!"
No, it's more like, "I'm very cute and well made, and just happen to look a little like vintage."

So I approve, and yes, the dress did speak to me.

Hi,
I'm like you, I want the real vintage thing too. This dress is really cute though, and has the potential to sneak into my wardrobe too!

85 percent ATLEAST of my wardrobe is vintage. I do however posses a weakness for Anthropology, though not in the past season or so. The dress is cute.

I agree with you, i dont like it when clothing companies try to pass stuff off as vintage style, BUT, you are correct with the dress, it looks so completely vintage and is as cute as a button! I have to get myself out to H&M!
