Some people said the world of fashion goes round and round, it has a way to repeating itself. Maybe it's one of the reasons why vintage fashion become popular nowadays. Vintage clothing is clothing that was made from 1920 to 1980, or at least, has its style. I personally like vintage fashion because of its uniqueness, you don't have to worry of meeting somebody who wearing the same clothes like you.
For Sydneysiders who love vintage fashion like me, you must visit Surry Hills. As many people know, Surry Hills is the heaven of vintage. There are many shops that will have you excited and forget about your saving-up plan.
My first stop was Sage Shop, located at 336 Crown Street, Surry Hills. I was really tempted by the accessories display placed in the middle of the store. You can find many vintage purses and jewellery her for an affordable price.
My second stop was Puff n Stuff Vintage Clothing. In this 2 level shop, you can find original vintage clothing design from head to toe. When you come in to the store, you might spend some time on the first level, looking around ladies and mens' outfits, but wait until you go upstairs, you will get excited with all the racks full of vintage bags, not to mention all the shoes that lining up from the stairs to second floor. This place is a heaven for vintage hunter, indeed.
After Puff n Stuff, I visited another cool outlet named C's Flashback Clothing. As the name suggests, this place will make you remember some trends that become hits many years ago .C's Flashback clothing collection is secondhand, but still in good condition. You can also find many records of classic musicians here that may be hard to find in another place.
Not far from C's Flashback Clothing, you will find Zoo Emporium. This is a super cool shop with a huge range of clothing and accessories, you may spend a little more time looking around this place. The ambience of this store is nice and festal with disco balls hanging from the ceiling and bright colours dominate this place. Not only that, there is room downstairs where you can find many sale items that can make you feel at home for a long time in this place.
After Zoo, I went to u-Turn Recycled Clothing Outlet. Located at 277 Crown Street, the best thing I like from this place is that we can find many unique and very stylish fur clothing from coats to hats.
Last but not least, I visited Grandma outlet. Grandma is one of Sydney's premier Vintage & Retro boutiques with the most incredible range of the finest vintage & retro clothing around. Grandma's exclusively source all their beautiful clothes & accessories from the UK and Europe so you'll find some of the coolest outfits never seen in Australia from the 50's, 60's and 70's, just waiting to jump into your wardrobe. With all the great collections there, It will be hard to come in to the store without buying something!
