Anytime I set my sight on a beautiful antique or a stunning piece of vintage clothing or accessory; I immediately begin to imagine it's former vivacity. What type of person wore it, how excited they were when they purchased it, what they wore it with, what their home décor was like, and what was their general aesthetic? Then I start to ponder how the blending of those items with current yet timeless fashions can complete modern story of who you are. This is what Yar Mo’s Muse is all about. Telling the world who you are; through timeless garments and furnishings.

What is Vintage?
The term "vintage" is used to describe clothing between 20 and 100 years old that is also clearly representative of the era in which it was produced. It could be said that to be called vintage the piece should strongly reflect styles and trends associated with that era.
It is important to understand that the definition of vintage is fluid, so every decade brings forth new items that fit into this category. It is also important to understand that all vintage will eventually become antique -- clothing 100 years old or more is classified as antique.
Classic style, as opposed to vintage, means a piece remains stylish through time; in other words, it does not reflect the era in which it was made but rather transcends all eras, with minor style adjustments. Examples of classic style are the little black dress, trench coats, button-up white shirts, pumps (style, not height or type of heel) and blazers.
