Hello readers! First off, I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Caylor, and I joined the Vintage Tex family in July! I’ve always had a passion for all things vintage and I went to school for fashion merchandising so this is honestly my dream job and I’ve been having a blast these past few months. If you’ve seen my Instagram (@caylortompkins) or my posts on the shop’s Instagram (@vintagetex), you’ve probably gathered by now that my favorite decade for fashion is the 1970s. Everything about it just speaks to my soul. That being said, upon seeing pieces inspired by this wonderful period in fashionRead More →

Hello everyone! I just wanted to post this quick entry about caring for those vintage pieces. Depending on the material and the way an item is constructed, you can store them just fine with your other clothing! But if you want to get the longest life out of your crepe-like 40’s dress, a little bit of effort can go a long way. Here’s a link that talks about how to store/clean some items: How to care for vintage items Remember, a little bit of love can go a long way. Love, MRead More →

So you’ve got your cute dress picked out, your hair done and your make up is on point. Most of your accessories are easy to figure out and you take a look at the finished product in the mirror. You get excited by how accurate your ensemble looks until your eyes rest upon your pretty bare feet. Oh no! What kind of shoes go with this? Do I even have anything close? It’s all ruined! Fear not my dear, for today I’ll be preaching on vintage shoes. From time to time here at the good ole’ Vintage Tex, some of our awesome and lovely guestsRead More →

Ever see those cool or cute funky vintage pieces and desperately want to buy them…only to realize that you have no idea how or where you could wear them to? Don’t be discouraged! We’re going to spotlight a few items to show you how you can incorporate vintage into everyday wear! First up on the list: brooches.

Have you ever gotten all dressed up for a Halloween party, only to realize someone is wearing the EXACT same hotdog costume as you? Complete buzzkill, right? All the more reason to stop by and visit your local Vintage Tex gals! What you’re buying at Vintage Tex is not only a piece of art, but you’re getting true-to-decade fashion too. (The 70’s were not entirely littered with bright colored flower power pants). Not to mention the cost of an average, oh let’s say, a Mad Hatter costume can run you upwards of $110.00! No joke! How many times do you really think you’ll wear itRead More →

I hope by the title you can already assume what we are going to learn about today: Sizing yesterday, sizing today, andmaybe sizing tomorrow.   But! First things first, let me introduce myself. I’m Monica, the newest addition to the fabulous Vintage Tex team. Not to be confused with the great blogger before me (who is also named Monica, cool huh?). I love all things 60’s, hair, makeup, minidresses, and the ever so handsome James Garner. Or maybe just his beard. I am a vintage lover by day and an aspiring actress by night. Oh and Thai is my favorite cuisine. Just so you know.Read More →

Unfortunately, I just had my last day at Vintage Tex. What a crazy summer it’s been!  I’m heading back to Trinity University for the fall of my junior year. Working at Vintage Tex this summer was such an incredible opportunity.  Vintage clothing is a passion of mine, and this job helped turn the spark into a bonfire! I’m unashamed to say I was probably our best customer this summer. Dresses, skirts, blouses, vests, jeans, shorts, purses, jewelry–none were safe from me. I give a lot of credit to Jen for this–she has a terrific eye for vintage, and she stocks her store very well! EveryRead More →
