It’s sale season! Also known as that time of the year when you compulsively buy tons of new clothing for the upcoming months (including winter, of course). Lately I have started buying clothes online; although sometimes it can be a bit more expensive that in downtown Barcelona, it allows me to get whatever I want. It is really hard to find vintage reproduction where I live; that’s why I shop on the net.
Here are my favourite brands to buy clothes from:
Established in London, UK, it is one of my favourite vintage-inspired brands. All their garments and accessories take influence from the 1940s and the 1950s at reasonable prices (compared to other brands it’s affordable). The sizing runs large, so make sure to pick a size down when you buy something from them. Although they use many colours for their clothing, the palette mainly consists on green, red and black.
One of the most popular US based sites to buy vintage repro and cute stuff. They constantly offer discounts and sale items for short periods of time. The best way to shop in time is to subscribe to their weekly newsletter, which shows you the most amazing items according to your likes and views on the page. The price range is wide, depending on the label of the item and if it is imported or not. Clothing and other stuff from their house brands is cheaper than, let’s just say, Hell Bunny or Collectif, which can be bought there too. Probably the biggest online shop to buy cute dresses with lovely and juicy designs. Also, If you download their Iphone App you get 20$ off your first order!
When I first got into vintage and retro designs, I had a huge obsession on Kling, a Spanish clothing line that creates stuff for young women who want to look like a Sophia Coppola character. All their designs are inspired by Coppola’s own world, as well as by Wes Anderson‘s. Big coats, pastel colours, cute logos and girly shirts. All their items are 50% off now, and shipping to Europe is FREE.
The place to buy all you dream of. You can find anything retro, handmade and cute. Etsy is social a platform to connect sellers with buyers. The site is specialised in second hand, handmade stuff and jewellery. Sellers and buyers from all over the world interact everyday, with safe payment and quality goods. There are lots of vintage clothing sellers willing to find a home to their garments. & they often offer discounts, so make sure to have a look and…start shopping!
If you want to look like a Classic Hollywood starlet, make sure to buy from Pinup Girl Clothing, based in California. They offer all types of garments in different patterns and styles to encourage and empower women. They want to make women proud of themselves no matter the size and the colour of their skin. Clothing made for all types of women. The brand is very active on social networks, and they constantly organize meetups, giveaways and promotional codes.
