Etsy Finds: Spring Dresses
Spring is here! Are you as excited as I am about wearing flirty dresses without having to layer leggings or tights underneath? If your dress stash is looking a little bit lean this year, now’s the time to stock up with some beautiful vintage finds.
Sure, you can hit the department store and buy a new dress, but where was that garment made, and what’s the environmental impact of producing it? The beauty of buying vintage is that you’re opting out of that system of production and waste. Sure, a vintage dress had an impact – possibly a hefty one – when it was made, but that is all in the past. When you buy vintage or thrift store clothing, you are extending that dress’s life and making your wardrobe more fabulous at the same time. Win-win!
You can scour local thrift and vintage shops for vintage dresses, but sometimes it’s nice sometimes to find a shop where the digging and curating is done for you. These Etsy sellers have done the work for you, so you can just click, shop, and then thrown on your beautiful new (to you) dress when it arrives on your doorstep.
