After receiving a few emails through our contact form about good places to shop in Nashville and asking where we buy our vintage, we thought it might be time to share a couple of our favorite brick + mortar shops in our hometowns!
This was my most recent purchase from The Hip Zipper. I bought it knowing I'd have to alter the sleeves + the waist (it's about 2 inches too loose) but got lazy and haven't done it yet. But, I decided to belt the shit out of it and model it anyways! It very much reminded me of a girl scout uniform mixed with a dress I saw Trudy Campbell wearing on Mad Men minus the novelty print (my hair actually started out in a beehive and I gave up on it... I've decided my hair's identity is disheveled weather reporter on-location.) I also love that the fabric shimmers (it's hard to tell in photos) but I think what sold me was the GIANT early '60s collar and the fact that the original belt was intact.
Do you have a favorite local vintage shop? If so, share!
