Sheer Romance is the name of our newest Vintage Loves collection, and it’s all about straps, lace, and sheer fabrics coming together to create a beautifully romantic look. Our vintage buyer, Ali, is incredibly well-versed when it comes to the world of all things vintage, and I always love to hear her take on the collections she so skillfully curates. I asked Ali to share with us a little bit about Sheer Romance, and to pick her 5 favorite pieces from the collection! Here’s what she had to say: Read More
For our latest collection of Vintage Loves, Sheer Romance, our vintage buyer Ali traveled across the country, seeking rare, ultra-femme silhouettes in whimsical whites and soft blush tones. Carrying with them the stories of decades past, these pieces prove that no love is ever lost. While shooting one of our styling stories (Locals Only) last month on the west coast, we shot some of the collection on the stunning Mau sisters. With their timeless beauty and natural grace, these two beauties brought the romantic pieces to life on the beaches of Malibu. Read More
Vintage decor. These words together make my heart flutter in an instant — they always have. There’s just something so alluring about the way things were. Read More
Fancy some of the very best people watching LA has to offer? Put this in your calendar. The second Sunday of every month, up to 20,000 people roll in to shop and sort the 2,500 booths of vintage, furniture, antiques, textiles (and much more) of the Rose Bowl Flea Market. Designers, celebrities, stylists, interior decorators… LA’s creatives flock to this (said to be the largest) market once a month, each with their own unique eye for what they are looking to bring home. Me? I prefer to sit in an old vintage recliner, coffee in hand, sunglasses snug and tight… and let the beautiful eclectic people watching begin. Ok, and a chunky piece of turquoise. Come find me next time for a chat will you? Read More
Lover of all things vintage? Avid clothes digger perhaps? Do heaps of unsorted printed pieces make you smile from within?

There’s nothing quite like a vintage t-shirt. It’s been through the wash too many times to count, making the cotton fabric turn into the softest thing you’ve ever felt. Read More
San Francisco is a city seeped in history. The Beat generation, the Summer of Love, a city that drew the counterculture to live and create freely and openly. People that don’t live in San Francisco think of these images; hippies, the Haight, the free spirited individual… but what you really see when you walk the city (only 7 miles x 7 miles) is the beautiful diversity of people and their own stories. There is no “book” or “rule of thumb” when it comes to pinpointing a style of San Francisco. The faces here are a beautiful array of beauty and love, of happy people that feel blessed to live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Read More
Holiday season is always a really exciting time around here, and this year we’re excited to be launching an incredible new selection of hand-picked vintage clothes and accessories in our Rock and Roll Caravan Holiday Shop! One of the things I love so much about Vintage Loves is that we always use girls (and guys) from around the office to model in the shoots – and this holiday shoot was no different. Enjoy a look behind the scenes, as well as a few beautiful outtakes from the shoot!

This week, the girls were looking pretty and cool in vintage pieces. It was interesting to hear where they purchased each specific piece, whether it was a vintage tee, dress or blazer. Mixing vinatge with new is one of my favorite combinations. I like that adding in a piece of vintage can give your outfit a new twist and its own story. Here is this week’s office style!
Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and we thought it would be fun to share some photos of Free People girls and their moms back in the day! Read More
