"For newer designs, head to The Closet where you'll find high-end threads and accessories (usually not more than two years old) by the likes of Pucci, Louis Vuitton, and 3.1 Phillip Lim."
Along with our fellow Newbury Street neighbor Poor Little Rich Girl, Stuff Magazine named The Closet a place where "we can have our Prada and wear it too" in it's annual Hot 100 issue, be sure to check it out!

My first introduction to vintage occurred while playing in the dress up trunk my sisters and I had inherited from a great aunt. The images of a rose hued tulle ballgown and beaded cocktail sheath haunt me to this day (where are they now?!)
Part of the reason I love both consignment and vintage is the nature of the hunt involved in finding that treasure, of which there is ONLY one. Just like at The Closet, the dress either fits or it doesn't. It's also nice to see that not all of the fashion world has turned into a giant conglomerate run corporate machine. Upon meeting the refreshing and inspiring folks at the South Street Block Party I was pleasantly reminded that an independent vintage/secondhand culture is alive and well in Boston. You really must pay them all a visit!

You might think we would tire of shopping after being surrounded by fashion five days a week, but lucky for us, we're always on the hunt. Whether it's a new store or a new dress, Boston continues to please sartorially. We are super excited to visit JP this Sunday for a spot of vintage shopping at both Dame and Haberdash as well as Forty South St and Salamagundi (awesome hats) hope to see you there!

Seen above is a Raf Simons' fringe dress from his SS '09 collection for Jil Sander...we think the version we posted earlier (by Emporio Armani) bears a striking resemblance, and we assure you it costs just a fraction of the price, plus it looks super fun to wear.

definitely deserves to be worn at a lawn party, preferably on
Nantucket or the Vineyard, but the Boston Public Garden would do just
fine. A lovely combination of cool practicality that will keep you
looking fresh this summer.

Nothing says summer (or is it Sunner!) like a one piece play suit. The version above (by Sunner and still at Anthropologie for full price) has just the right combination of vintage flair with modern wearability. Plus it's totally on trend: ruffles, check, high waist, check, short shorts, check! We can't resist a jumper whether it's a jersey version from Vince or a pair of mini Naden overalls, the design is absolutely made for looking cute (and also perfect for biking.) So call it whatever you want...we will just call you chic in the heat!
