What Is Vintage?

Marc Jacobs Spring Summer 2008

While doing a bit of thrifting I came about a few pieces I wouldn't designate as vintage but others would.  It seems as though the fashion society has declared a high end designer piece that was in stores a little more than a year ago a vintage piece. A Marc Jacobs dress from Spring Summer 2010 is considered to be from past season but recently I heard someone use the vintage to describe it.  Not sure how the terminology vintage has become a reference to anything not as of the current date.  The world of fashion can be very pretentious and downright dumb.  Readers, how do you feel about this?

Wood You?

Jewlery made from wood is a true favorite of mine.  Not to long ago I discovered a plethora of wooden beaded necklaces from the early 1980's. Here are a few pics from my discovery.
