Best Vintage Stores Online
Vintage shopping may be one of my favourite pastimes but nowadays often find it difficult to come up with the time to rummage through countless boxes and racks at the massive thrift store full of women staring at you just you case you snatch those vintage Chanel slippers first. So, how is a thrifter meant to find time? Simple. Online.
Shopping designer and inexpensive second-hand clothing and accessories online has become easier than ever thanks to direct messaging on Instagram that makes it possible to purchase directly from your feed. Although I like looking on ‘official’ stores; ASOS Marketplace and Etsy have to be two of my favourite vintage gems.
They sell everything from Helmut Lung atelier pieces to rockabilly 50’s dresses, vintage bridal wear and quirky 70’s runway garments. Get inspired with these amazing stores mentioned below.
Buying on Instagram is a new and innovative way to purchasing items online. Na Nin Vintage is a great example of that. They post their latest finds and you DM them if you want to purhcase. First to DM is able to purchase.
If you're the girl that loves having exclusive designer vintage pieces this is the website for you. They have everything from 1950's jewellery to 1920's inspired furniture. It is more on the pricey side but you are looking to splurge on a unique item, here is the place.
This outfit is a perfect example of what you can find on this website, everything from this beautiful Versace vintage pastel pink blazer to Premium Jean Paul Gaultier from the 90's.
Another amazing way to find vintage pieces! Vinted is a unique App where you purchase or exchange items with sellers. This is great if you are looking to upgrade and buy a new designer bag, so you can sell it or exchange it for something else. Simple and easy!
Another one of my favourite has to be the Downhouse where they sell unique vintage rare independent designers. They are very retro and have lots of colour, perfect to add to your wardrobe.
At the end of the day, whether you prefer to shop online or in store i think it's essential we have at least one signature vintage piece to add to our collection for that wow factor
