Mary Clary Bridal Designs - Headpieces
Vintage is currenty very trendy for brides. Many brides are choosing gowns and headpieces that are either truly vintage or have a vintage quality (vintagesque). There is a huge quality differential in the category "vintage." Vintage simply means something that is at least 20 years old. So, if the vintage headpiece was poor quality and in bad taste 20 years ago, it probably still is, but it is now old on top of it.
Therefore, you have to use your discerning eye, and really look at the headpiece for it's intrinsic qualities. Do you love it because it is beautiful and well made, or do you just love the fact that it has a quality from a different era?
You really don't have to be hung up on whether the headpiece you have chosen is authentically vintage. If it has the look that goes with the rest of your ensemble and is excellent quality, then being authentically old shouldn't really matter.
