Vintage Passion



It's been awhile since I decided to love vintage. And awhile since I've been reading about it comparing definitions, descriptions and illustrations as I know I most likely will not know how to distinguish vintage from antique just by looking. The first definition I read of vintage refers to wine, and as an adjective that means high quality, as in vintage claret. The Urban Dictionary defines vintage as "too old to be considered modern, but not old enough to be considered antique." There's vintage clothing which, according to Wikipedia, "is a generic term for new or second hand garments originating from a previous era." There's also vintage fashion which is "clothing and accessories that are at least 25 years old, and as, according to ATELIER-MAYER, "vintage fashion is now coveted the world over, it can be as little as two season's ago." There is also vintage furniture which is "furniture between 30 and 100 years old."

While roaming Central World, I was happily drawn to a store called Vintage Passion. Items for sale there are my kind of things to furnish a house with. Now I'm not really keen on the age as long as the look looks vintage to me - fine by me as this earring is, which I never wear but once.


Girls checking out guys, vintage style. If there is such a thing as vintage behavior.

  7. Oh this is great! I didn't really know the difference between "vintage" and "antique." I think some of my clothes might be almost vintage now!
