There are so many reasons to shop vintage, especially for gift-giving during the holiday season. A true fashion girl will appreciate something truly unique and she'll wear it on repeat through the years. It's going to be one of her prized possessions after all. We're seeing more and more young people uncover cool vintage shops online or via Instagram, and we fully support the eco-conscious movement to recycle apparel and accessories. It's better for the environment to re-wear treasures from years past, and it's also further proof that trends repeat themselves.
Personally, I'd rather be toting a vintage Fendi pouch than something brand new, and not just because of the price difference. Imagine stowing away your belongings in a purse that's been on the arm of someone else - that bag has a story, and I consider it to be precious. I scanned the best sites to find the most beautiful items. There's a Vivienne Westwood corset from 1992 (that's the year I was born) and a silk Céline blouse in holiday red that I'd absolutely wear on New Year's Eve with a pair of jeans and awesome slingbacks. From barrettes and hair clips to luxe designer satchels and statement jewelry (hi there, Rolex watch), you can browse through a wide range of price points and feel good about your purchase no matter how much you spend.
