I'm bored with my clothes. I'm in a bohemian kinda mood (is that the right word?) and I want to add some vintage clothes or something else unique. I figure vintage never goes out of style completely which will save me a few humiliating run-ins with my fashion savvy freneemies. (I like mock turtlenecks, red lipstick and hair scrunchies - sue me!)
I like the clothes that are classic but colorful but I have only seen them on people, never in a store. I'm not shy but I feel like an idiot walking up to a stranger and asking where they got their outfit.
So, any girls on here wear the cool urban-vintage styles? Where should I shop? Any tips for accessories and stuff?
Without help, I'm gonna look like a kid playing dress-up in her grandmother's attic.

I like vintage too. I find most of my stuff at thrift stores. It takes a lot of hunting, but I've found some cool stuff. I love 50s purses (I have way too many). Just don't buy certain items from thrift shops that can't really be cleaned, you know. If you're any good at sewing you could also make your own clothes. I've done that too. Buy a vintage pattern and update it with current fabric trends. Or you can even modify vintage items you find (or make your own patterns from thos items). Make sure that you have a nice mix of vintage and modern fashion pieces, that way you won't look like you're playing dress-up. You can also try doing a web search and get ideas for outfits.1
