There's a website/online vintage store I subscribed to a while back and haven't visited in a while but today I had a look again to be re-inspired and subscribed to their blog. Based in San Francisco, the company offers a wide range of vintage clothing as well as unique, new designer pieces.
"Each item is unique, and comes with an individual history... giving it personality beyond what modern clothing could dream of recreating."
This idea is really interesting to me and I spent an entire year of university investigating the relationship people have to their belongings and in particular, their clothes.
Although having never purchased anything, Nasty Gal is a great source for inspiration, something I would attend regularly for inspiration if I was a designer. The vintage pieces are always uniquely styled to look contemporary.
This video documents their latest fashion shoot for their upcoming Look Book - I really love what the stylists did with these looks.
I also just discovered that they held a Facebook competition for a uniquely stylized vintage outfit and will be holding another one this Spring. So get on it ladies.
