She styled her black vintage pin accessories with a pink vintage vintage blazer, black Old Navy jersey shorts, and white cherry tee tank top top. Since then, Vintage pin clothing has grown in popularity as bloggers from New York, Dallas, and Portland have discovered them. Vintage pin clothing is generally seen in basic, rocker, and geek style. In September 2010, Chictopia wrote an editorial about Trendspotting: Vintage Pin-up.
