Vintage Fashion - New York Inspiration!
I love to eyeball other vintage online stores. Not only to see what treasures my fellow vintage retailers have had the good fortune to source but also to see how they are styling their fashion pages and what trends they are following via their blogs. The vintage fashion community as a whole are a very embracing bunch of people, happy to share their knowledge and always oblidging when it come to linking and promoting other like minded boutiques and blogs. So it's always nice to find new blogs and online shops showcasing their fabulous vintage fashions and accessories.
The lovely ladies at VagabondNYC recently emailed me about their gorgeous website and I must say I'm impressed. Uber cool styling and very funky vintage threads make VagabondNYC a stand out little store! It figures really - Both Andrea and Naveed who run the show work in fashion as a stylist and an editor (respectively). VagabondNYC was born out of their shared passion for vintage clothing and accessories from the 60's through to the 90's (definitely girls after my own heart!)
The great thing about their site is that it has a Looks section that focuses on showcasing their vintage finds through really beautiful, fabulously styled editorials to give the customer a different perspective and show them how the clothes might be brought to life...This is definitely the best way to help a customer make a decision about purchasing a product from my experience!
The site is really fresh, full of really gorgeous clothes at reasonable prices and shipping is free...what more could you ask for!
Oh and their blog is choc full of fashion and styling tips for the girl who loves fashion and is mad for vintage.
