Designers often look to the past for inspiration and many times you can see the influence staring right at you from the runway. Why spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars for a designers interpretation of the past when you can own your own piece of it? For those of us who have a passion for all things vintage, it is always in style. There are times however when a certain era or specific vintage look becomes HOT in the fashion scene. This page is your heads up to current vintage inspired looks. I love it when someone asks me " Where did you get that?" or "Who is that by?" and I can reply "Darling, its vintage." So below are some looks of the moment you can find here at Viva la Vintage. As looks change so too will the suggestions on this page so check back when you feel like you need a fresh glance at the current trends.
