I don`t like the idea of wearing used clothing, so vintage is out of the question for me. Too much vintage = costume in my opinion. The best way to do it is to get clothes that are vintage inspired, or use vintage material to make new clothes. To me, one of the advantages of vintage clothing is being able to buy something at a quality level I would never be able to afford today. I have several vintage pieces from the 40's that have spectacular craftsmanship, and do not look dated to this day . I have never been a fan of dressing as though I am in costume though.
