Recently I had the opportunity to attend a great Vintage show in downtown Los Angeles called A Current Affair. There were some amazing finds on display that I want to share and let my readers know about. And fortunately for you, dear reader, both of these finds have online stores. First, check out GlamAMOR in downtown Los Angeles and on Esty.

The owner, Kimberly Truhler, has a great eye for beautiful beaded sweaters and brightly colored simple shift dresses. This summer season seems to be all about color, and the timing is perfect for gorgeous teals, hot pinks and brilliant blues. Kimberly acquires clothing from the 1950s and 1960s and most of it is in immaculate condition. Whether you live in Los Angeles, or shop online, you’ll want to give GlamAMOR a look.

Another fashion find you’ll want to check out is Debutante Clothing. Owner Sandra Mendoza Daly has an amazing eye and scours estate sales and auctions to bring customers incredible garments. The black dress about with the fur trim reminds me of an Adrian I saw once in a fashion book. Check out Debutante Clothing online and at local shows in Los Angeles to take advantage of fabuless finds. Sandra offers prices that are substantially less than some of the more upscale vintage shops in Beverly Hills and on La Brea. I keep hoping that she will turn up some more Irene treasures for me to buy.
My final Vintage tip is eBay. I have a habit of regularly searching for items from the old Bullocks-Wilshire store. That particular search usually produces amazing finds. If you have a vintage shopping tip, please leave a comment here and share. C’mon now, don’t be selfish
