Here’s the post for you to read yourself : HOW ‘USED CLOTHING’ BECAME ‘VINTAGE FASHION’

When someone dresses anachronistically, people usually want to know what statement they’re trying to make. But the meaning of vintage fashion has been changing for the last 50 years—ever since “dressing vintage” became something different than just wearing someone else’s old clothes.

I like the fact they used anachronism in a sentence because it’s a fun word but really how often do you use it…it feels out of time and place here 😉
