HOW TO CUSTOMISE AND WEAR VINTAGE CLOTHING

      

A glimpse inside the beautiful new book of Kelly Doust (Australia), Minxy Vintage: How to Customise and Wear Vintage Clothing, 256 pages - hardcover, 

Do you browse through vintage or retro clothes at flea markets and wish you had the knack to breathe new life into the dated frocks, skirts and smocks?

Whether you’ve been trotting out in vintage forever, or you’ve come late to the vintage trend, quality vintage pieces are a modern staple of every woman’s wardrobe for their unique beauty and flair. But how do you find the best vintage pieces, or know them when you see them? And how can you customise and wear them, without looking dated?

Crafter, fashionista and vintage vixen Kelly Doust delves through her wardrobe and scours flea markets far and wide to bring together a fabulous collection of delectable vintage finds.

This is not just a book about loving vintage fashion: it’s about seeing the wonderful possibilities for updating all old clothes, and how to look fabulous doing so, no matter what your age, location or budget.
