We've long been fans of integrating vintage pieces into our wardrobes, but only recently did we realize it was all we have exclusively purchased since the onset of the pandemic. Save a few pieces (underwear, bras, workout gear, and one handmade dress), the only other additions to our closets have been found by following a short list of vendors and investing in items when they catch our eye. 

The benefits of previously loved clothing is long. Not only is there less consumption (hence less contribution to the fast fashion industry and the environmental harm it creates), there is also the sartorial value in having a unique collection of clothing and the financial benefits of spending less for more in the way of quality. And did we mention it's just a more thoughtful way to shop

The collection of spots highlighted below are ones we frequent either in-person pre-COVID, online, or via Instagram. All are women-owned and often feature their founders modeling their latest goods, adding immense value and history to our personal attire. We hope you enjoy them all as much as we have!
