Today’s YouTube video is the third in my FAQ series about vintage clothing. This one is for people who feel there’s an ick factor to buying from a store or site that specializes in secondhand clothing. Guess what? Not everything is necessarily used. You can often find unworn clothes at self-described vintage, thrift, or consignment retailers, both virtual and brick-and-mortar. Just look for clothes that are “new with tags” — often abbreviated to NWT online.
A good NWT find can be cause for gloating: Check out how excited I get when I talk about the Giambattista Valli jacket that I posted pictures of yesterday.
You know I had to take a picture of the tag!
I paid less than 10% of the tagged price, and — trust me — I’m going to be smiling about that every time I wear this crazy jacket.
