I have a bone to pick. I primarily want to jab it into a few select ladies eyes. Its time to rehash that vintage vs repro vs inspired argument.
There is a debate going on in a vintage clothing group I belong to about how things are tagged and described. Mostly the over use of the term "Atomic", and using terms like Mad Men and Retro to get traffic to a sales listing.
First off, who made you the authority on what is or isn't something?
Secondly, if you don't like a listing, don't buy it.
Thirdly, if you only want to wear true vintage all the time, that's fine. Nobody is pissing in your cornflakes over it. How dare you look down your nose at someone that doesn't?
I really hate these snotty snobby bitches that think polka dots and cherries are played out, and you're not doing it right if you don't wear vintage.
I don't swear often on this blog, but let me take a moment to give a grandiose FUCK YOU to you people.
The point of being in the Rockabilly community is that we share a common interest. Rockabilly. THAT is the glue that binds us, not the clothes we wear or the size of our bodies. I appreciate the girl in the head to toe vintage with her game on point as much as I appreciate the girl in the denim Capri pants and top from forever 21. Each person brings their own unique beauty to the table. If you cant appreciate that, I don't want you anywhere near my circle of friends.
