This article is for the lazy vintage lover; someone who wants to find something associated with a time period, but who does not want to trek around to shops and festivals in search of a piece with a great story behind it. This article is more about the "look" than the feeling, because not everyone is as nostalgic and eccentric as me.
Today many retailers create new pieces of jewelry and clothing that resemble great styles and fashion from previous decades.

Generally the word vintage should be paired with a year, similar to the way we associate fine, aged wine with a year; i.e.) 1999 Mondavi Private Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet. The year allows one to denote a time that something of quality was produced. However, vintage can be used loosely to describe the general idea that something of high quality was made in the past. Furthermore, clothing that was produced before the 1920s is typically referred to as antique clothing, and clothing from the 1920s to 20 years before the present day is considered vintage. These definitions are the basis for the "looks" that we see in mainstream stores and websites today.
The list is comprised of 9 photographed items. There are 9 items because I am writing this in the 9th month of the year. I had to find some cute correlation...
