And there I was. Sitting on my plastic, white chairs, drinking coffee and just enjoying myself.

When I received the task to make an vintage outfit from old clothing peaces that have a story, the first thing that came in my mind was the 70`s. The time my mother was born, the time my grandparents got married.

And here comes the stories.

Let`s start with glasses you can see in most of the pictures. These sunglasses are made of plastic and only plastic, 70`s, right? These sunglasses were my grandmothers signature look. Yes, my grandmother was one of the most stylish women back in 70`s. When you put them on, it feels like if they could talk, we`d experience many, many beautiful events and memories. They make you feel like there`s a hope that maybe just maybe we can see what my grandmother saw.

The camera. I think it has so many memories that it`s impossible to tell all the stories. But there is something that makes this camera so special to me. With this exact camera the first picture of my mother was taken. It may not feel special to other people but to me it means everything!

The bag you see in some pictures is again used by my grandmother and the most nostalgic thing is that she took it with her to her wedding and there are many pictures where you can see that she`s holding this exact purse.

The last thing that you can see the most, actually in every picture is the white coat. And the reason why I decided to use this coat were not the stories but the fact that it was bought from last years fall collection. It only proves that to look vintage you don`t need to have actually old paces.

These were the paces who at first sight look simple actually hold many memories and secrets.
