I got asked so many questions about this vintage Valentino number! I was in a thrift store and it popped out at me. I knew I needed it. Not only is it on brand with The Gilded Bellini (hehe) it is truly one of a kind and a total conversation starter. Of course I added a little "Brielle twist" on it and paired it with a crop top and ripped skinny jeans, but that's the beauty of mixing vintage with modern. You can kind of turn the look into whatever you want to!
I have always had a love and appreciation for vintage designer clothes. Nowadays everyone shops at the same places so it's nice to have something really different and that is beautiful and great quality!
Here are a few of my favorite vintage/thrift shops in both SoCal and NYC.
Captain's Helm - Oceanside
Buffalo Exchange - Costa Mesa & Pacific Beach are the best locations!
Wasteland - LA
Beacon's Closet - Union Square
The Vintage Twin - West Village
Crossroads - Brooklyn
