If you haven’t seen it already, check out this video by Mode that gives us a snapshot of 100 years of changing fashion trends in less than two minutes. Honestly, I was most intrigued by the time periods I’ve lived through (90s, 2005, today). It’s hard to place what outfit will end up defining an era (when you’re actually living through it), so it’s fun to see their interpretation on the styles that really stuck.
Not to mention is great “research” for my vintage clothing Etsy shop, The Gibbson Girl!
What do you think? Did they get the eras right?

Avalon Exchange is a very unassuming resale shop in heart of Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill. So unassuming that I never ventured inside until my hairdresser recommended it to me. Not only was the shop filled with racks and rack of quality used clothing and accessories, but it was also packed with people. Apparently I’ve been missing out on quite a neighborhood hot spot.
The shop had a sizable selection of menswear as well as a robust women’s selection. The shoes in particular were great quality at very reasonable prices. You won’t find a thrift shop steal here, but you might find a pair of Miu Miu heels for less than $100. Which is certainly a steal in my book!
For less than $50, I left with some of the best vintage finds I’ve had so far this year. Needless to say, this is far from my last trip to Avalon.
