Vintage Queen 51: Quincy from the USA Our amazing Vintage Queen number 51 loves mid-century style. She combines her Forties tea dresses with chunky modern boots and indulges in the Hollywood glamour of the Thirties. My name is Quincy, I love vintage clothing with a passion. I live on the Eastern Shore of Delaware with my husband and my cat, Patsy. We moved down here from Maine just a few months ago. The best part about moving south from Maine is that vintage clothing is so much more abundant here! Most of my favorite vintage finds were found in small, quirky little shops that seem to be all over the place. From the time I was small, my mom would take me to antique and vintage shops. I remember getting my first vintage bathing suit at just 11 years old. I think a lot of my love for vintage comes from watching old films. I’ve always watched old movies and wanted to look like the glamorous movie stars in them. There are things I love about each decade, but my favorites would have to be the Thirties and Forties. I like to wear my Thirties and Forties dresses with modern accessories, like boots and chunky heels I love vintage clothing because it’s one-of-a-kind and it’s very unlikely that you’ll see someone wearing the same thing as you. I’ve enjoyed running my own shop on Etsy and bringing vintage clothes to girls all around the world. I also have a blog that I started a little over a year ago. I’ve become so much more confident in myself partly because I’ve found so many girls with the same love of vintage. Instead of just collecting vintage clothes and hanging them on my wall, they are now a part of my everyday wardrobe. I also love how the vintage community has brought so many people together, even if we may actually live hundreds of miles apart. 5 Responses Sheila Brady December 21st, 2009 The one thing I have noticed with all the Vintage Queens is that they have an inate sense of style, No 51 is included in this! I do envy her having such a selection of shops, not paying huge prices for ‘TAT’. I just love Quincy’s look – just fabulous. I would nearly fly to Delaware to get some of these super pieces. Good Luck! Reply Casey December 21st, 2009 Quincy has such a lovely sense of style–I always enjoy seeing what amazing vintage finds she unearths and works into her wardrobe! ?
