Giveaway | Shoppalu x The Anthology

So many of you tell me how much you love vintage clothing but how terrified you are of vintage shopping. So The Anthology and Shoppalu want to do a little something to help you out with that.

We’re giving away $100 CDN towards vintage goodies and shipping from Shoppalu! (I wish I could pick myself as the winner and then use that gift certificate to get this floral dress. But I love you too much to do that to you…) So, how do you enter?

For one entry: Comment on this post and tell us why you love vintage. (It’s the treasure hunt, isn’t it?)

For two entries: Write on The Anthology’s Facebook wall and tell us why you need more vintage in your wardrobe.

Double your entries: Holler at @Shoppalu on Twitter and write on Shoppalu’s Facebook wall.

The contest is open to readers worldwide. The lucky winner will be chosen on November 2, 2011 (contest closes 5:00pm PST 11/02/11). Good luck!

    I love vintage because you are finding a one-of-a-kind item that no one else has!

    I love vintage for making me think outside of trends!

  • Reply Kastles October 26, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    I like to make up stories about who owned the pieces before me. And I also like that no one else has that special piece! Just you!

    Of course part of it is the treasure hunt!
    What’s great about vintage is all of the deeply personal aspects of it – who is used to belong to, how it got to where it is, and why you chose it.
    It feels great to wear something that is so totally you but also so many other things! Proves that style is really what you make of it. xo

    I concur! I love wearing vintage because it makes your outfits unique and special. And I love shopping for it, too! What an adventure!

    I was going to say it’s the one-of-a-kind factor, but I’m hardly one-of-a-kind in feeling that way, it looks like!

    I love vintage because I believe I was born in the wrong era. When I wear vintage to stand out in a crowd, to show the people where I live what is fashion forward. Unfortunately my vintage wardrobe is a bit lacking at the moment. This would help me expand it even more.

    I have just recently discovered the magic of vintage shopping, but it’s now my newest obsession. I just love how nobody else wears the same piece (most likely), plus I love to fantasize about the fashionable ladies who wore it before. You kind of create a bond in a weird way with women from the past. Mysterious!

  • Reply Kelsey October 27, 2011 at 4:49 pm

    You’re right! It is about the treasure hunt. I love going to thrift stores and searching through the racks of clothing for that amazing piece. The hilarious printed t-shirts and awkward dresses make for a good laugh while searching too. The process is as fun as buying the clothes!

  • Reply Wendy October 27, 2011 at 6:42 pm

    The thrill of the hunt is definitely an alluring aspect of vintage shopping for me. I also like that vintage clothing is better made than many of today’s clothing.

  • Reply Donna October 28, 2011 at 12:26 am

    Definitely love vintage shopping for the one of a kind finds but it’s also incredibly fun thinking about who owned the item before you did!

    I love vintage because it’s awesome finding something unique that you can incorporate into your wardrobe. I’ve found tons of vintage clothing from thrifting & I love it so much. Finding something for an amazing price just makes me so happy! :D

    Maybe it is just me, but vintage takes me back to playing dress up. Vintage pieces lend themselves to being combined in new and creative outfits – part self expression, part escapism.

    i love vintage because of the deflated reactions you get when someone asks, “oh my god where did you get that?!?!?”, and you know what you’re wearing is one-of-a-kind and they’ll never have one. i know it’s a little evil, but that’s how i roll.

  • Reply Liz October 28, 2011 at 5:54 pm

    I love vintage because of how creative you can be with the pieces! It’s so original!

  • Reply Shirley October 29, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    There’s something unique about revisiting the past, but putting a modern twist on it. That’s why I love vintage!

  • Reply Liv October 29, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    Vintage – that’s pretty much ALL I used to wear in high school. then i turned against it in Uni but now I’m back. I love it b/c you’ll likely find things no one else has, and you have the opportunity to make it your own.

  • Reply Anna October 31, 2011 at 1:43 pm

    i love vintage because it’s a) often more well made than current pieces, 2) you’re pretty much the only person who has that piece, 3) pieces help you remember your Mom, your Grandma…. your dead Grandpa etc. 4) and yes, it’s all in the hunt, the find, the bargain….

  • Reply Anna October 31, 2011 at 1:44 pm

    I’ll write to you on facebook and Holler Shoppalu on twitter and facebook!!

    I absolutely adore vintage clothing. I enjoy the process of searching for incredible, unique pieces since it’s like a treasure hunt; you’ll never know what you’ll stumble upon. Plus most of the time, it’s a total steal! I would much rather spend $100+ on multiple pieces of gorgeous vintage clothing than one piece from Aritzia, which is being worn all over town. Don’t be a trend follower, but rather, be a cost-effective, trend starter. Most of the time, my vintage pieces are versatile enough for the office and for a girls’ night out. Accessorize is secret. :)

    I love vintage because I think it’s more smart than actual fashion. I need some vintage clothes in my life! ;)

    I love vintage because it never fails to represent beauty in any era.

    I love vintage because back in the day everyone looked so classy. We seem to be losing our class. Gotta do what we can, and try to bring it back one dress at a time!
