Store Review: Vintage Shopping Online

March 23, 2005 by

Do you love the idea of accenting your wardrobe with vintage pieces but just don’t have the patience to trek to vintage shops and thrift stores and dig around looking for your next favorite thing? Lucky for you – and for me! –we now need only go as far as our computer screens to snag something great. Online vintage shopping has gotten easy, but you still need to know where to go. My picks:

The cute, risqué drawings that adorn Enokiworld (enokiworld.com) make browsing fun. In my own search for vintage suits, I found a number of stylish ones by eponymous designers, neatly organized by decade. The description of a 1970’s Halston is thorough, with information on the designer, specific measurements and suggestions for accessories. Ditto for the Emanuel Ungaro Schoolgirl Dress and Jacket , which is complete with original hangtags.

In my hunt for accessories at Piece Unique I found a Lanvin scarf and Chanel jewelry. The photos are super clear and everything is on consignment from its owners so the site is organized by “ads.”

FASHIONDIG (fashiondig.com) let me search by designer and decade but I decided to go by department and look for home decorative items. The Pucci (yes, that Pucci) Design Rosenthal Dishes are terrific, even evident is the smallish pictures. The MOD Japanese Kitchen scale is fun, too.
