Ready or not, winter is in full swing and the holidays are upon us. It’s a time to wax nostalgic, and whether you’re gathering ‘round the fire with friends and family, dancing under strands of shiny garland, or dreaming of jumping ship to warmer lands (Who Loves the Sun?), you’ll want to do it in wistful style. Luckily, Velvet Underground Vintage has a carefully curated selection of party dresses and luxe wool and fur coats, so you can go Head Held High or Venus in Furs. Go ahead, linger on.

Boutique Highlight | {Re}Collect Vintage

When we think of classic design, many things come to mind: Eames Eiffel chairs, vintage issues of Architectural Digest, and of course, certain wardrobe staples. Classicism, while underrated in our trend-driven and disposable product economy, should not be forgotten. Luckily, in the world of vintage, we know more than a few people who do more than just appreciate timeless pieces. Afsaneh Taki is one of them. As the owner of {Re}collect Vintage, she procures perfect archetypes in the form of classic trenches, wool coats and dresses in a spectral array of texture, print, and shape. The pieces in her collection share one common trait: integrity. Of design, of quality, of beauty. It’s a collection that you’ll want to hold on to throughout the years.

InStyle named us Best of the Web 2013
We are delighted with the award Best of the Web 2013 by InStyle Magazine which placed us alongside genius e-commerce sites Burberry, Net-a-Porter’s new beauty site, Kate Spade, 3.1 Philip Lim and Tory Burch. 
Vintage may be having it’s public spotlight moment as a category all it’s own, and vintage-biz allies Bib & Tuck and NiftyThrifty also made the list. But you already knew the insider’s secret (vintage never really goes out of style). Seems the rest of the world is catching on.
