Vintage is better in black & white
I would say close to half of my wardrobe is vintage. There are lots of local Los Angeles vintage shops I have frequented over the years, including my go-to venders at the flea markets. But nothing is more exciting than finding some retro gems while traveling. Every city has their own distinct style and it’s fun to sift through their time capsules of the past. During a three year world tour I did performing in 55 countries, my routine for days off would be to find the best vegan or vegetarian friendly restaurants (South America was nearly impossible for that task), hit the guitar shops, record shops and local vintage and thrift shops. This dress in particular I found in a German town on the French border at a thrift shop for 6 Euro. It’s one of those pieces that has been hanging in my closet waiting for the right moment, or maybe a slight alteration. The moment was musing for this tin type shoot.
Happy thrifting, bunnies!
