Welcome to The Metal Romantic Vintage, a vintage shop featuring standout treasures from past decades. Upon opening up shop in 2018, I was a new mom, with big dreams. In some ways, becoming a mother was the driving force that I needed to finally make my dreams, a reality. To be a positive role model and example for my son. As a graduate from SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design), with a Bachelors degree in Fashion Marketing and Management, fashion was always the dream career for me. You might say, I'm living my very own fantasy.
I have always had a deep love for all things fashion, but the history of fashion in particular, has always intrigued me. Looking back to how it has evolved over time and also cycled back around, time and time again. That's where my love for vintage fashion is rooted from. As a kid, I loved admiring and playing dress-up in my parents and grandparents vintage clothing from their past, looking at old photographs and admiring what everyone wore. This later turned into a deep passion for thrifting and collecting vintage. I get so much joy from finding a garment that has truly LIVED, and bring it back to life. A garment that has stood the test of time, while still evoking the energy from that particular decade. I love nothing more than to imagine the story of who wore the item before, what kind of life they lived.
