Vintage Violet


About Me
Hello, my name is Bobbi. I’m a third year journalism and political science student at Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ. I’ve always had an infatuation with vintage clothing. It’s a true ode to fashion when a 50 year old Dior dress can be worn to the Oscars and win best dressed.
I spent six months in London spoiled by a smorgasbord of vintage stores and markets. I’ve been in stores where you could see nothing but clothes and shoes from ceiling to floor. I’ve shopped at thrift stores where Britain’s high society donate their clothes. But my greatest moment in vintage shopping was shopping at the same vintage store as Kate Moss on Portobello Road.
For three months I backpacked Europe finding items from the 1800’s that have become some of the best pieces in my wardrobe. I broke my back lugging around 100 lbs of clothes and it was all worth it, or so I thought.I came home only to find some incredible vintage and thrift stores in my own home state. A Jersey girl at heart, I plan to give these great places the exposure they deserve and encourage vintage shopping!
About the Name
The word vintage is usually used to describe fine aged wine. The fashion industry has applied the same principle to fine clothing

.New Jersey

New Jersey’s state flower is a violet.


I like alliteration. The fact that I was planning on creating a vintage blog for New Jersey and NJ’s state flower is a violet is all the more reason this must be fate.

  1. Hi!
    I have been a fan of Dandelion Vintage for a long time think your interview with Carol was great! I have to admit not only am I a Vintage Clothing fan/collector but I am also a Springsteen fan! So when I saw another Vintage Clothing blog based out of Jersey I just had to come say hello. I’m going to finally see him (I’ll be 41 next fall!) in August!!
    I love your violet theme~~will be back!
