Today one of my friends and I began the footwork for our vintage online business. Vintage clothes are items that are from an era of the past such as the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s etc.  Vintage shopping is when you go to a store that has already found vintage items and thrifting is when you go to a thrift store (Salvation Army, Goodwill, etc) and search for vintage items or cheap stuff in general. Of course, the thrift store items are cheaper than the vintage store. Vintage clothes are popular because they are unique and are usually one of a kind pieces. So, fashionistas love vintage clothes. 

First, we went vintage shopping at Jezebel which is a vintage boutique in Fort Lauderdale. There were a lot of great finds there but the brightly colored dresses from the 60’s really caught my eye. I was drawn to this 60’s dress almost as soon as we entered the store and I ended up buying it. 

It looks super cute on

I also got these cool cat-eye glasses to pair with the dress. 


I also found this 80’s dress that I wanted to get but it didn’t fit me. 

Sixteen Candles



I was quite happy with my purchases and I also picked out a dress for my friend, which looked great on her, and she ended up buying. 

After that we headed down to Miami to go thrifting. Luckily, we found a lot of vintage items there and we got a great deal on everything. The prices were super super cheap. I even found a dress for myself that I only paid $3 for! 

I love a deal!

We really loaded up at that thrift store and we will be going back this week. Here is a sample of the items that we purchased. 


Lastly, we headed to C.Madeleine’s which is the pinnacle/ holy grail of vintage stores. 


They had a large selection of designer vintage clothes from the 50’s to the 80’s. A lot of the items you could picture movie stars of their time wearing. Their pieces are quite expensive; $100 was the cheapest price that I saw. But I will say that their clothes are well worth it. My friend found a classic black Audrey Hepburn dress that she fell in love with that she didn’t buy but I have a feeling that she will go back to buy it. 

I think that our vintage and thrifting day was a huge success. I bought a couple of items and we bought a lot of items for our store. We hope to shoot the items this week and get them online. When we open our online store I will post the link here.
