When you want something special, one-of-a-kind pieces at a decent price there's no comparison to vintage. The limited quantity and rarity of vintage can make it hard to find (especially in your specific size), but lately quality vintage is only a few clicks away on the web. This leads me to this week's sponsor: LA Vintage. This shop is an excellent online source of quality vintage pieces from accessories to swimwear and everything in between.
Not only do they have a large and diverse stock of pieces, but the site is amazingly user-friendly. You can browse by size, era, color, type, etc. It makes hunting down that perfect polka dot blazer as easy as pie and their prices are extremely reasonable considering someone else is doing all the leg work. Not only is the site a source of fashionable one of a kind clothing, but it is an earth conscious way to shop; a rare enough combination in the fashion industry.
This week's prize is a $100 gift certificate to spend at LA Vintage. Open to International readers. The winner will be drawn and announced on 11/8/09.
