We make it no secret that we prefer to sift through thrift store racks than visit vintage or specialty stores. BUT, there are a few exceptions. We’ve had some really great luck with three online vintage stores that have quality clothes and reasonable prices.
Lost in Vintage: If you follow this blog, then you know this is one of our absolute faves. We did a Q&A session with Lost in Vintage owners, Heather and Bo Liles, and fell in love with not only their store but also their business ethic and wonderful personalities. Ricks wore a dress purchased from them for Easter (if you missed the post, go check it out). A few weeks ago, this gem came in the mail as a gift. It was as if the universe decided this dress was absolutely made for her. Go ahead, check out their shop on etsy, but be prepared to want every single thing! You can visit them here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/lostindrawersvintage.
The Thrifted Closet: This is a new shop with fabulous pieces dying to find new homes. Run by Tasha, this shop features hand selected pieces good for anyone who’s looking to stand out . There are soooo many things I want from this shop, but I gotta keep my debit card in my wallet. I did purchase this sheer blue dress that I absolutely love. It’s light, flowy, and itching to make a debut at happy hour or brunch. I’m being a good girl and not buying anything else, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go treat yourself if your budget allows. Tasha created a lookbook so you can see how the items look on a real person: http://thethriftedcloset.bigcartel.com/lookbook.
The Vintage Starfish: I was browsing Etsy one day and came across this shop. The owner’s name is Emily, and she has an eye for bringing together eclectic things: vintage clothes, glasses, and lamps are among the things currently available. While browsing the shop, I scored this fabulous romper for $8.99, which was shipped promptly with a handwritten note for a discount code for my next purchase. Keep an eye on this shop, as Emily is restocking for the summer soon! Check out Emily’s shop here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheVintageStarfish.
We will always love our crowded, slightly disorganized thrift stores, but it’s nice to have reliable shops that can provide specific items we’re looking for. Do you have any favorite online stores? Share them with us! But if we buy anything we’re not supposed to, we’re blaming you!
Until next time,
