The Best of Retro online: A concise guide

Is there anything as satisfying as finding the perfect vintage item? Even online, the thrill of discovering a dress with a print, cut or neckline that fits you perfectly is like the moment you remember there’s a frozen pastry in the fridge; It was a magical and proud moment and you knew you would never let them go……

But unlike pastry, finding an antique treasure is almost always a one-off (except, of course, during a pandemic). The hunt is like a wonderful chase that yields something you can treasure forever – an object full of a story, often beautifully made, that you can put in your museum – ready to give it a second life in the modern age…… Okay, okay — maybe I’m being a little too romantic. But there is also romance in antique shopping. It feels more deliberate and less rushed. Even if you are looking for something special for a limited time, it will feel much sweeter once you stumble upon it.

Vintage doesn’t mean the puffy sleeves, static fabrics and bridesmaid dresses of the Eighties that you might have seen your mom wear in 1983. It can mean clean tailoring, subtle detail and attention to detail that “you just don’t find anymore.” I’m hardly a vintage veteran, but I’ve been rummaging through big scarf baskets in charity shops and Beyond Retro since I was 14 – I figure I can spot a good thing when I see it……

This is who we are! Some of my favorite antique places on the Internet. These are of course just the tip of the iceberg, but I tried hard to narrow it down to avoid the typical “antique flood”!

Fashion clothing

These are a few of my favorite online shopping sites for real, carefully selected, amazing vintage dresses. From period-inspired pieces to dazzling dance dresses and everything in between, these women really have an eye for style……
