But perhaps this is because I know how to sew, and have an eye for fabrics. Buying reproductions, I'm on the fence about. I've scoped out some awesome reproduction manufacturers, Like Loveland & Sea, Pin up girl, Freddies, and Nicole Katherine that offer true to form reproductions. The problem is, they're popular for a reason because everyone that can't sew and doesnt want to buy vintage, goes to these business. As they should. Support small business!
I personally, would rather flounce off to the fabric store, butterick pattern in hand, and make my own. So it doesnt have a Shaheen label in it. Thats ok! I can admire your dress without having to own it.
I do like to go authentic with accessories, and in fact just acquired my first Lucite box purse.
Aint she pretty?
I also have a new obsession with confetti lucite.
So do whatever makes you feel put together. I do my MystiLuxe original dresses and authentic vintage accessories, and I feel great.
