(sister's thrifted cardigan, second-hand scarf, forever21 undershirt)
This cardigan was found by my sister at a thrift store. Since we have the same taste we always borrow clothes from each other. This picture was taken in front of my "dream house" in the town I live in...

(thrifted hat, Zara dress, Salvation Army bag, Unisa boots, Express pants)
This color pallet is by far one of my favorite combinations. I would normally wear this dress paired with black tights and some heels to go out at night, but I'm really liking this layering! Have a good week everyone!
(Second-hand scarf, H&M dress, Charlotte Russe Gloves)
To me fashion is not about being slaves to certain trends. Fashion is about using those trends that inspire you, and making them unique, making them yours only. Dressing up depends on many different factors, such as weather, mood, inspirations, etc. To have a style, to me, is all about being able to put all those factors together and make them work, but make them work for you, not for anybody else. Is not about pleasing or impressing others, its about pleasing and impressing yourself. So go ahead and put on some wearable art on yourself today, but make sure to make it your own!

Vintologie is an online site on eBay, were I sell vintage clothing. All clothing is one-of-a-kind and hand selected for its excellent condition, fashionable appeal, costumer desire and of course, inspired by current trends. I put up auctions about every 10 days and I specialize in vintage clothing so you have the opportunity to own a piece of history. Authentic Vintage means that the piece has to be 15 years or older. I mostly sell Vintage pieces, but every now and then I come a cross something that is not, but I know that the costumers will love. In that case, it will be clearly stated on the description that the item is not vintage… This site is only for those girls who like to own something that nobody else will be sporting, something unique, because vintage is for lovers only!This is the new 10 day auction! You can see the items here

Vintage Saks 5th Avenue Folio blazer, second-hand scarf, thrifted ralph lauren shirt.
This was taken a couple of weeks ago at Bowery Park. The camera night function doesn't do any justice to how beautiful the city skyline is from there. I'm so glad I'm only less than an hour away from one of my favorite cities in the world...

Vintage Brooks Brothers blazer, second-hand scarf, second-hand belt, vintage mabel pants, zara shoes.
I've always been a blogger by heart. Normally before I start to to my daily routines I always check my favorite blogs and brouse through some websites, then I'm off to lead my normal life. So I decided to start my own blog to report on my daily style. I'm thinking that I won't be posting lots of clippings and other inspiration boards.This will be mostly about how I dress, and why I do so. I've always had a passion for fashion, especially for vintage! I grew up watching my grandma on her sewing machine and looking through old (sometimes REALLY old) clothing magazines. My sisters and I used to try on and play with the old dresses that my grandma had stored from years (even decades) before.
I moved to the states about 6 years ago, and I was thrilled to discover a world of vintage/second-hand/thrift stores. Shopping for those treasures instantly became my guilty pleasure. I've been collecting for a while now, and I often sell many of my finds on ebay, though I'm an independent seller, I don't have a store. I will let you guys know when I put things up for sale as well.
I can't promise I will post things everyday, but I will try to do as often as my busy schedule allows me!
Hope you enjoy this little personal space!
I will have to get my hands on this PVC leggings one way or another. I found this one at netaporter.com, but it is just too expensive! And this economy doesn't help. I love this Spring outfit they put together here...I guess I'll just have to manage to put something like this together
