Vintage Is The New Black

Mix it up with a little vintage touch.  Speaks heavy for recycling and creativity!
American Rebel Vintage at 7474 Melrose Ave., LA in the Fairfax district, was voted Best Vintage Store of 2012 by LA Weekly, for their expertly edited selection of vintage dresses, just-threadbare-enough T-shirts and broken-in cowboy boots.  They have channeled Easy Rider-era Peter Fonda to Little House on the Prairie Laura Ashley dresses, along with Dior cocktail dresses and floral rompers.  These are selection from the back of the store, in the Way Back West room.  Don't miss it!!

Optical Sphere

Optical Sphere
 8026 West 3rd Street, LA
Optical Sphere is my fav glasses shop.  Alex the crazy Russian owner, has a huge collection of specs only to be rival by Elton John's and Lady GaGa's.  He knows this because they are his customers.  Alex has glasses of every era dating back to the Civil War, up to the most hippest current styles.  

Movie Studio Wardrobe Departments

The movie studio wardrobe departments are a treasure chest for stylists.  Universal Studios, Warner Bros., Sony Studios, Fox Studios, and ABC are to name a few.  With a "drive-on" pass to the back lot a stylist can choose from acres of clothes warehoused from movies and TV shows.  Each piece is cataloged with a barcode to track it's location, which is an awesome feat of organization! But this makes Hollywood a stylist's paradise!

Vintage Souvenir Scarves

Souvenir travel scarves were the trend of the 50's and 60's.  When visiting a National Park or a city away from home the ladies would purchase a scarf of that locaton to remind them of the sites they had seen.  I love the ones that are 100% silk and have that vintage feel.  Since I am from Washington State and have lived in California most of my life, the one I have scored at thrift shops from Yosemite and Washington as exceptionally special.
