Bustown Modern

One of the things I love the most about finding new vintage shops, is seeing how someone appropriates vintage clothes, some people maintain the original vision, others put their modern spin on it. Somehow I stumbled upon BustownModern what I love about this shop is how they style and taylor the pieces so much like their contemporary counterparts. While many vintage sellers do this, I really like how they’ve managed make the vintage pieces seem new by breathing a new life in them. BustownModern also sells Mid-Century furniture like this gorgeous lamp, gosh, it’s like my two favorite things in one shop!

Here are some of my picks currently on auction…

  • 80’s military style rain-cape
  • 80’s draped minidress
  • 80’s floral jeans
  • 80’s slouchy lace minidress
  • Full bow, full skirt same cut, but with tree print

I love Bustown Modern as well. The models are always so great and the clothes definitely have a modern appeal to them.
