                                         Maureen:- Style to me is about creativity.twist & turns...It's not about what  you have but how you wear it.



VC9ja:- What makes vintage clothing appealing to you?

Maureen:- It makes me understand what my mum looked like when she was young... Lol...(jokes).... Well,vintage is unique...tz a piece that size doesn't matter. Sometimes d oversize d funkier to experiment.

Secondly,it makes you stand out of the crowd which is so cool.

Again, it's usually one piece or very few pieces out there. You might end up being d only person that has it which is great!...but dats why it's vintage isn't?!.... *smiles *
