"Vintage jewelry is really the best way to wear jewelry, it’s very timeless and you don’t need a size to wear it," says Davis who highly recommends vintage costume jewelry. "While it may not be gold or silver, you’re still buying top quality pieces because they were made domestically." She suggests to always have a goal and look for sites that include good photos and are willing to talk to you on the phone. Davis likes sites like Etsy MaeJean Vintage for one-a-kind pieces that come at an affordable price.
"Buying vintage bags is the way to go because they’ll last," she says. Davis suggests checking out MyDarlingVintage.com. "The stuff on this site is affordable because there’s no overhead like there is with stores."
"When it comes to clothing my number one tip is know your measurements. Know your waist, your hip width, and your bust," says Davis. "Look at sites that are specific about their measurements and don’t be afraid to message these sites if you have questions." For dresses, she suggests sites like Thriftedandmodern.com, that include dresses from the 1950s all the way up to the 90s.
"People like to express themselves with their eyewear, so why not get them vintage?" she says. Davis claims you can easily find designer lenses at great prices and a lot of them have never been worn. "Next to jewelry their the easiest to clean and restore so you can have them for a very long time." Check out Giantvintage.com.
