You’ve heard it all too often.
“Who are you wearing?” asks the obsequious entertainment correspondent of the Z-lister on the red carpet.
“The dress is Gucci, the shoes are Louboutin and the jacket’s vintage.”
The latter always comes across as: “Never you mind.”
There’s no way you’ll be able to hunt that particular item down.
It’s no longer part of the mass production portfolio.
And if the item in question is really gorgeous, roll on the tears.
Well, now you can watch your friends weep enviously with your very own vintage hook-up.
I give you Beyond Retro.
Beyond Retro has stores in London, Brighton and Sweden and you can even order online.
Items available include dresses, jackets, jeans, bags and more. They’re all second-hand, in great condition and sold at fab prices.
This 1960s style minidress is made with princess lines and has a square neck with a zipper at the back.
Then check out these jackets.
This mohair houndstooth one is very Chanel from the 1990s and has a round neck and pockets.
Next up, this evening jacket – also circa 1990s – is made with a front zipper and shoulder pads.
Happy hunting – and smug non-name dropping!
Please note prices, product availability and weblinks correct at time of gushing.
