Discovering unique stores with a twist is so exciting. PipLey Vintage is one of those stores with an alluring element–vintage. Owner, Carole Fuchs wanted a place where women could go and find affordable, and flattering clothing. Every woman’s dream right? In doing so, she created an online haven. PipLey Vintage prides itself in “making grandma’s closet look cool.” I love that! The site definitely gives off that old-time, chic flavor. The flowers certainly remind me of my grandma’s wallpaper. Grandma always has old school flavor that rocks the boat. PipLey Vintage proudly points that out.
The name PipLey Vintage comes from combining her two daughters names Finley and Pippa. Instead of just selling vintage, there are also Indie designed clothing and vintage inspired pieces available.
Fuchs love affair with vintage was instilled in her early on. Her mom always took her to every antique store in the state of Indiana. At that time she hated it! When she got older, she realized how cool the items were, and became more interested. But of course she didn’t let her mom know. Ha! When Fuchs was old enough she started rummaging through her grandmother’s items and she’s been obsessed ever since.
I totally agree with Fuchs when she says, “I really think vintage fashion will always have a place in society. It is hard to beat the classic looks of Jean Harlow, Marilyn Monroe, and Bettie Page. The younger generations are starting to realize that. Vintage clothing is flattering for women. The quality of vintage clothing is undeniable and hard to find now a days.”
