I’m possibly at my happiest when searching through a rail of vintage dresses. However, I get frustrated by how poor vintage shopping online can be: too many bad pictures, too many items badly labelled. Over years of searching, I’ve around 15 different boutiques I come back to time and time again. Want to experiment with vintage? Trust me: try these shops first. The Stellar Boutique has something of a bohemian edge. The photographs of its vintage stock – dating from the 1940s through to the 1990s – are a lesson in how to make vintage look contemporary. I love the colours of this 50s shirt dress: I’d quite like her yellow converse and basket too.
