vintage shopping with refinery29

today i thought i’d share one of my recent posts on refinery29 my stylist. i went to one of my favorite shops, pretty penny vintage in oakland, to check out the selection and share a few of my vintage shopping tips. no, it’s not revolutionary by any means, but even a seasoned vintage shopping veteran like myself (wink!) can appreciate a few tips and hints as a little refresher before i venture out on a vintage expedition. there are so many factors to take into account that what should be a fun adventure can sometimes turn into a stressful task. so hopefully you’ll enjoy some of my tips right here!

you can see all of my refinery29 posts here.

    Good tips for vintage shopping are always appreciated! We agree, ditching the list and expecting to get something tailored are two of the most important things to remember. And how fun to have a store in nearby Oakland to check out!
