Vintage, vintage, vinatge. I love vintage clothes. Some people aren't into it, but I just love finding one of a kind items with thought out details, and amazing prints you just can't find anymore.
Here in LA, we have quite a few places I just love going to. And usually leave with a couple items each time. But when it comes to shopping, I like places that are less busy, and so cluttered that makes the whole experience more enjoyable. I wanted to share my 3 top favorite places I like stopping in when vintage shopping is calling my name.
Shareen is located in DTLA, on Spring St. And it's not near all the hustle and bustle either, it's actually in an industrial part of L.A in a warehouse. It is kind of tricky to find because the entrance is actually on the other side of Spring St, so just be on the look out for a chalkboard sign, and a bright red tutu!
Playclothes is located in Burbank on Magnolia. What I love about this place is how much diversity they have. They have women, men, and home goods and it's all pretty reasonably priced. There are other vintage stores on Magnolia, but Playclothes is definitely my favorite!
American Vintage is located on Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks. What I like about this place is how many good items they always have for affordable prices. I feel it's really organized and with a large enough space where it's easy to shop. They have a few locations, but this one is my favorite, and it's a plus that there are other vintage and boutique shops around.
Hope that helps if you've always been afraid to go vintage shopping. It can be overwhelming at first, kind of like a first time thrift shop haul, but give it a chance and some time and you're bound to find a gem! If I ever find a good sixties dress, I'm always a repeat customer! :)
Happy Monday, friends!
