Jolie Vintage Shop on Etsy has new stock. And oh what new stock they have.
I think it goes without saying that if I had the money, I’d purchase all the frocks below. The owner – Nena – has such an incredible eye for vintage and sells at really reasonable prices. I’ve seen pieces of this quality at double, and even triple, the price here. Most of my vintage pieces have been purchased from her, and I don’t regret a single one – they’re all brilliant!
Here is my latest lust list:
On a side note…
…the reason I buy so much vintage is because of the quality, cut, femininity, and uniqueness.
If I were to walk into Portmans and spend $120 on a dress, the cut might be okay, and the quality/ workmanship *might* be okay. If I were to spend $120 on a vintage piece, the cut is outstanding, and the quality/ workmanship is outstanding too. These pieces were made to last, and last they have. When you try on a vintage dress for the first time, you realise how poorly cut so many pieces are these days. If you ever get the opportunity, buy a vintage piece. It’s worth the hunt.
