More and more vintage stores are going online now which is a great time-saver for searching for unique and hard to find pieces. Here is a collection of some of my favorite sites for vintage fashion.
This site has been around a long time specializes in higher-end vintage pieces mostly from the 60's and 70's. I covet everything in the designer section, but have found some really great day dresses as well. The photography is excellent and I like that everything new is listed on the "What's New Page".
This is a great new site for earlier decade vintage. Very pretty dresses, hats and other accessories and fantastic descriptions and photos of every piece. Located in Los Angeles this site has a great blog as well.
Yes, this is a corporate store, but it also has an interesting selection of vintage pieces. I use this more as an inspiration and gallery because the prices are super high. However, what's great is how the collections are organized and curated.
Etsy is a great source for vintage because there are lots and lots of sellers on there, but you have to be ready to dig and sort through pages and pages to find great things. You can favorite individual sellers that have more curated collections, but the quality really varies from seller to seller.
I have to do a shameless plug for my latest endeavor here as well--a collaboration with my daughter. We are just getting our online store off the ground, but are aiming to provide a curated collection of later-decades vintage (70's, 80's and 90's) that is extremely wearable and "current" and more rock n' roll than ladylike. This is mid-range vintage, not designer high-end or collectible vintage.
