we are anxiously awaiting the chime of five this afternoon, and not simply so we can wrap ourself up in a delicious and well-deserved nap. this afternoon, our latest haul of vintage goodies will be ready to collect from our tailor. we showed up last week to our excited seamstress (a reformed fashionista at heart) arms piled high with vintage finds. some gems include a red chiffon batwing dress (now mini) and an unbelievable dolman leopard print jumpsuit. we are drooling in sartorial anticipation.in fact vintage has officially become our first true love, taken the lead role in our daily wardrobe performances. while we maintain our shopping activity across expected retail favorites, it’s the vintage spots where we find the real goods.
we call them our pieces. they are unique, they are remarkable and they’re ours, all ours. usually for a fraction of the cost.our vintaging strategy can best be described by one notion: go bold. we’re drawn to the overly theatrical, the pieces that appear riskier and louder than expected. the ones passed over by most. it’s here where we find inspiration. vision for what it could be (with the help of a tailor). cool old shit needing fresh new love.per reader requests we are compiling a working list of favorite spots around town. feel free to share your own favorites and special spots amongst the group. your secret is safe with bras and ranties.vintaging
