If digging through piles of clothes at your local thrift store isn’t exactly your jam, don’t fret— the wave of online vintage stores that have taken over the internet and Instagram over the past couple of years has you covered.
You can get killer vintage pieces, from luxury designer pieces or preloved knitwear to top-of-the-line couture, all from the comfort of your couch. Now I’m not going to list the big ones (i.e. The RealReal, Depop, or Vestiere Collective) because what fun would that be? These are the lesser-known, but highly stylish, vintage stores that have caught my attention and stolen my heart.
If I didn’t know better, I’d think that the quote “style is forever” was originally said about Deux Birds. The collection of everyday and luxury vintage is elegant, timeless, and minimal. Each piece on this online vintage clothing store is curated considering the quality of composition, endurance of style, and ease of wear. The pieces sell out QUICK, so take note of when their next drops.
