How To Blend Vintage Fashion With A Modern Aesthetics

33 comments

Vintage fashion has been growing in popularity since the early 1990s and is now hotter than ever. This appreciation of the romance of vintage is reflected in more than just clothing styles, but also in interior design trends and in the media. So many current television series and movies are set in the past, and the music scene also reflects several era-based subcultures, from swing to rockabilly.

This prevalence in popular media has translated to increased demand by consumers. Great value is placed on owning a piece of the past that can be enjoyed now and will likely outlive new fashion fads that come and go.

The fact is, vintage items are known for quality, craftsmanship and timeless design, so it's no wonder there has been such a reemergence of these styles among those with distinguished and exacting tastes.
What Truly Defines Vintage?
The term vintage describes items that authentically reflect a definable time period that falls within the past 20 to 100 years. Vintage clothing can be original pieces as well as those recreated from salvaged textiles or just newly manufactured in vintage style. Authentic vintage clothing is from the period, is constructed from quality materials and features fine detailing and remarkable craftsmanship. Most vintage textiles come from natural sources and include pure silk, cotton, wool and linen, and many use unique and whimsical patterns that remind us of bygone times.
Vintage fashion is appreciated by individuals from all walks of life—from consumers to performers—but authentic vintage designs are also sought after by collectors who view these items as investments. These authentic pieces must be preserved in pristine condition to be of maximum value. There is also a market for hobbyists who specialize in reviving well-made pieces, repairing damage and wear and then restoring or repurposing these items for personal enjoyment or for resale.

Some mainstream retailers have tried to harness the vintage fashion trend by attempting to mass-produce clothing that has some elements of vintage styling; however, history buffs and vintage collectors typically demand authentic items.
Vintage Clothing in the Fashion World
The contemporary fashion world continues its love affair with vintage flashbacks. Runways are showing off polka dots, color blocking and metallics. Models strut on the catwalk in boots with buckles, chunky costume jewelry and lots of velvet and lace detailing. These styles are showing up on the street in such forms as metallic brocade and velvet from the 1920s to pencil skirts and sequins that were popular in the 1950s. There are splashes of vintage to be seen everywhere you go!
How to Wear Vintage Fashion
In other to wear vintage fashion without appearing to be dressed in a costume, finding a careful balance is key. Pick a focal point. For example, if you start with a contemporary basic, choose vintage accessories as accents. If you opt for a vintage piece as your focal point, then accent with modern jewelry.

The Importance of Disclosing Sponsored Content

6 comments

Be diligent and transparent with your brand affiliations 
If a brand is paying you or giving you free products to post content, promotions, or endorsements on your social media channels, you should disclose your affiliation with the brand so that your audience is aware you are posting sponsored content. 
Different countries have different laws and regulations when it comes to disclosing sponsored content. From both an ethical and legal point of view, you should always clearly disclose that the content you’re posting is sponsored. It’s important to be transparent with your brand affiliations.

What ‘clearly disclosed’ means can be, and is, disputed, but as a rule of thumb, the text sponsored, ad, promotion, or similar should be easily visible to your audience. Examples of this can include adding sponsored as a hashtag in your Instagram photo caption. 

If you’re posting multiple Instagram photos, blog posts, or something similar, and you want to share it across various social media channels, you will need to disclose your brand affiliation in each post. For example, you may want to share your Instagram photo, which contains sponsored content, on your Facebook page. If this is the case, you should include a disclosure in both your Instagram and Facebook posts.

one mistake bloggers make that hunts them later: Metisuboutique.com

Over the years, commenting system has been a very big challenge to bloggers, I have migrated from blogger to google plus commenting system. I had an issue with my blog commenting system and invited someone to solve the issue and she wiped off all the comments from the previous years and never replied my emails anymore. I kept using google plus and just realized how I have been missing out. Google plus commenting system is not flexible and I will totally recommend that if you open a blog, it is better to use the commenting system that comes with the blog. I know that we all want something fanciful and more interactive like disqus and google plus but I strongly will recommend using what ever commenting system your blog provider comes with.
I decided to migrate from google plus back to the normal blogger commenting system and I must say it really hurts seeing that all your lovely comments will no more be visible.

Blogging is a journey and it comes with a lot of sacrifices and discipline to always do what is best for your blog. So, my little advice to any new blogger, is read about commenting systems before you embark on this journey.
I joined the google forum for question and answer
What is the best commenting system?

Hi Melody,
Thanks for sharing your question today - and welcome to the Blogger Support forums.

Both Blogger and Google+ comments have their advantages. Blogger Comments allow you more flexibility, in that you can allow anonymous comments - and you can moderate comments from your dashboard. Google+ comments let you combine your Blogger and Google+ activity - and let you free yourself from moderation. Google+ comments are moderated by the community - and require a Google+ account, for participation meaning if a reader doesn't have a google plus account he/she can not comment on your blog.
