Vintage Lovin!

Hello All,

I would like to introduce myself and give you a little run down of what me and this site is about.  My name is Shannon and for as long as I can remember I have always loved vintage and antiques. I believe that my love for vintage all started in my grandmothers basement snooping through a large box of old clothing(mostly 70’s poly glitter dresses) that she was going to give to goodwill. I remember pulling out almost everything in there and showing my younger sisters and cousins (this is also where my love for playing dress up began). Every time I went to my grandparents place I would always start up a grande game of dress-up.  To this day I still go to my grandparents basement to see what kind of gems I can find, and to this day never come upstairs empty handed. What can I say I was blessed with a grandmother that had good taste and luckily held onto her old clothing.

Fast forward to March 2009 where I randomly got a job as a Vintage Clothing Buyer. With this job I got to travel the world in search for the best Vintage. The more I searched the more I loved and it always broke my heart when I had to leave some of the beautiful (slightly damaged) items behind. So there I began bringing clothing home and either fixing it or altering it so that it’s beauty could continue to live on……. hence “A Second Life”. The second part of loving all this beautiful vintage is finding a way to wear it in today’s modern world.  So that is also what this blog is about. I want to share my great finds, and help give you  great ideas of how to wear your own fabulous vintage pieces with a few modern touches.

I hope you enjoy!

Shannon
