About

My Mom My Icon

I came to live in the USA in 2006 to open a wholesale division for a company I used to consult with and then I met my hubby and decided to take a new path in my life! Cougar Vintage was born!
My mother was always my fashion icon.Since i was a kid i used to play with her closet , but somehow i stuck in the past! Maybe because I borned in a vintage environment with a lot of art deco and baroque decor! She was my icon!
All the inspiration for my vintage based on my fashion icons from the 60s, 70s and 80s like my mother, Jack Onassis, Audrey Hepburn, Lauren Hutton and so on…
I always wanted to sell clothes that will be fun to go out wearing whether a girls night out or a special date or even a formal occasion.

Thank you for stopping by.
"Vintage clothing is made to last. If you care for it properly it is an investment that will last for years to come."
All my vintage collectibles are original.I post them exactly how they are presented!
We lovingly hand-source our vintage items to bring you a wearable collection of beautiful pieces. We check each item for signs of wear and cleanliness and we describe each item fully. We classify our vintage clothing as:

Mint - As new, with no flaws or signs of wear

Excellent - Previously worn, with no notable flaws

Very Good - Previously worn, with minimal noted flaws or signs of wear. No repair needed, fully wearable.

CARING FOR VINTAGE
There’s no doubt that decades-old clothing requires special care and attention. Many older pieces are made in fabrics that are no longer manufactured.
"Be gentle, don’t exercise, do jumping jacks, or hurdle race in your vintage dress," :)
Use precautions to prevent the damage that can be done by sweat.

STORAGE
Proper storage is crucial. Using padded hangers helps save the shoulders on dresses. Storing things in a canvas, breathable garment bag is smart. Do not store in plastic garment bags! Plastic garment bags do not breathe, so odors, sweat, and damaging chemicals are trapped with your clothing. Canvas garment bags are widely available and some even have special features such as cedar to ward off bugs.

LEATHER CARE:
Leather can be virtually indestructible if treated properly. With a little bit of care and attention, your new leather will last well into vintage age and your vintage leather will continue to have a long happy life.
The most important things to remember about leather is not to get it soiled, soaked, or let it dry out. Despite the fact that all of these things can be rectified to some extent, it is helpful to not let leather get into such a condition in the first place. Proper storage, cleaning, and conditioning will keep leather looking as good as new no matter how old it is.


JEWELERY CARE:
1. Don't wear your jewelery while you're asleep or while you're having a long shower or soak in the bath!
2. Avoid wearing perfume at the same time as your jewelery. Perfume contains strong chemicals which can cause a reaction meaning the plating will tarnish and eventually break.
3.Brass items need to be looked after as brass tarnishes over time (although this does add to the vintage look!). To get your pieces shiny again just give them a wipe with some Brasso.
4.Please treat your pieces gently! Although every care is taken to ensure the strongest materials are used (i.e. glue) they may not withstand hard labor!
