Spring Forecast

with 3 comments

Fall is the perfect season to shop for vintage spring dresses since most shoppers have their eyes fixed on cold weather attire. And with popular designers like Marc Jacobs stacking their spring 2012 collections with vintage-inspired dresses like the one below, these silhouettes will be harder to come by once the ice begins to thaw.

This look is not just reminiscent of, it’s a total copy of the disco-era dresses of the 1970s to 1980s; those swingy, polyester, wrap/faux wrap numbers your mom used to wear. Easy on, easy off. You were probably conceived in one of these frocks.

But I’m not knocking Marc Jacobs. I actually love when designers turn to vintage looks because you can get an original for a fraction of the cost of a designer redo. The trick is to stay ahead of the trends and start scanning eBay and etsy in advance. Oh wait. We already did that for you. Click on each image below to see the full listing.
