  1. This is such a great post! Thanks for including me; I definitely think you should make this a regular feature here on SDV!!

    Gotta say from the above pieces (excluding mine), I LOVE Irina’s cross-cut sequin top! It looks fabulous on her and love how she paired it with jeans. Also really love the pillbox on Stephanie (but I’m sure that’s not a surprise!)

  2. I love Irina Gonzalez sequin top! I want one!

  3. Loving how everyone wore their Sammy D Vintage pieces! A tiny bit jealous of everyone’s amazing one of a kind finds…
    Great post, Sammy! See you tomorrow for shoppin’ n’ boppin’!

  4. Wow! Excellent post! I can’t wait to get my hands on some of SDV’s finds! Do you have an online store? Is everything in a brick and mortar store? Do you have vintage parties? What’s the 411?!

  5. Oooh! I just saw a “shop” link up above. Hoping it works from mobile!

  6. I’ve recently started a blog, the information you provide on this site has helped me tremendously. Thank you for all of your time & work.

  7. Love the slanted sequined top!

  8. This is just what I needed, thanks a lot! Keep up the good work!
