While searching for vintage treasures to feature on this shop page, I got to thinking: Why do we enjoy buying vintage over something at the average clothing store?
We enjoy it more because there’s always a story behind how the seller found the piece, or a style conversation to be had when someone compliments your outfit, or a bragging moment to be boasted on how — in the famous words of Tim Gunn — you “made it work” for you!
This collection highlights vintage clothing that you’ll own and love for seasons to come. I focused on curating one-of-a-kind designs and styles for true finds that inspire a “work-it-anyway” attitude, EVERYDAY!
Whether you “work” a fedora into your weekend wear or experiment with a bold color (check out the fuschia pink dress!) to “work” into your spring color palette, the opportunity to experiment with vintage style rests with you.
I encourage you to wear-it-to-work-it, ladies! Because why just be original, when you can be vintage?

Week of March 14
With spring’s blue skies and flower blossoms right around the corner, it’s time to lose dark layers and gain style glow!
I’m loving decorative lace, light florals and bright candy cane stripes. I’ve had enough of leggings, boots and vests — it’s time to open my wardrobe to the freedom of feminine flair!
A piece’s vintage essence is in its style details. That’s why this collection emphasizes accent buttons, bold bows, crotchet details and multi-pattern designs. Each item was hand selected to fulfill standards of trend, wearability and price.
