Vintage Fashion Finds We're Obsessed With Right Now
Vintage is the *new* new. Shopping retro pieces has become easier than ever before thanks to shops such as The Break paving the way for purchasing the coolest one of a kinds through Instagram. And since we were so inspired by what professional thrifters were doing, we decided to give it a go ourself.
You may have noticed that the Labels & Lacquer site now has an all-new and very exciting "Shop" section! When you click on it, you'll find some amazing vintage pieces that Darby and I sourced ourselves!
There's everything from wool skirts that are great for work to leopard dresses that will have you channeling your inner '90s kid in no time! And we've gotta say — we're pretty excited about what we were able to source for you — so that you don't have to actually have to go through lots and lots of racks in person to find a unique piece to add to your closet.
Everything is reasonably priced and often, made of genuine fabrics such as suede and silk. So, these items are a serious bargain considering the quality. We also dry cleaned everything for you.
We'd love for you to give these clothes a fashionable second life by adding them to your wardrobe. Your signature style will make these garments so much better, but before you get to shopping, why don't you find out a little more about what makes each find so special?
Find out below and see some pretty cool collages we made to show each item off!

We love how effortless this top is. It's perfect to be worn during the summertime because of its lightweight, breezy nature. Because it's 100% silk, you'll always look put together. Easily dress it up with a fun, printed skirt or pair it with jean shorts for an effortlessly chic look.

This is a great skirt to pair with cute sandals or tall boots, depending on the season. You'll get a lot of wear out of a piece like this, and considering it's only $34 — it's definitely worth a buy, if we do say so ourselves!

This dress is vintage Ralph Lauren. We can't get over the spots on this maxi dress and how perfect it would be to wear really any day of the week. It is really easy to dress up or down.
