Hi, ladies. I must shamefully admit that for a person with as many posts as I have on the FL, I have very little in the way of an actual vintage-style wardrobe. I came for decor and, "flavor" originally. For those getting started, particularly on a tight budget, what would you say are the staples, the absolute backbone pieces you can accessorize into a bunch of different looks? I mean everyone might love a cherry print halter-dress... but it isn't going to do a lot of different looks, you know? For instance, my eye is out now for pencil, circle, and A-line skirts. What about tops, cardigans and twin-sets? I don't really know. What kind of necklines should I be looking for? I most love '40s and '50s but staples of any vintage look could be posted here under the thought there must be SOME other girl out there as clueless as me.
