GoldenRags – "A Modern Twist on Vintage Rags"

Tamara B. has always loved clothes and thrifting. The blogger and entrepreneur enjoys thrifting clothing from a variety of decades- particularly those of the 80s and 90s, but sometimes can’t fit the styles. So back in 2013, she officially launched GoldenRags, an online vintage shop that has since been her creative outfit so that she can style the clothes and mix-n-match with current styles that are around today. On why she chose the name ‘goldenrags,’ she recalls, “I thought it was a cool play on names, because when you think of vintage, it’s very golden, but some people think of them as being rags. So it’s just sort of a play on the two opposites.”

When asked what sets them apart from the myriad of online vintage sellers, Tamara responds, “We work with the styles that are around today. So it’s not for the girl that necessarily wants to look like she stepped out of the 70s…It’s for the girl that likes a little bit of vintage…We also have pieces for the people that do want to dress for a particular decade. But we cater to modern vintage… Our tagline is a ‘modern twist on vintage rags.'”

While I was in LA, they happened to have had a pop-up shop at the DTLA Arts District Co-Op building. There were two racks with Tamara’s eclectic and colorful finds. She credits one of her more ‘better finds’ to a funky 80s acid-wash denim jacket with sequins and embroidery; which was dutifully styled on the mannequin. Among some of my favorites from the pop-up were: a black and white woven vest, a floral print peplum dress, a Southwest style striped vest, a pastel floral romper, a jewels and chains printed dress, an Aztec-style print tee and lastly- a Bart Simpson tee.

Their prices are also affordable, ranging from $5 to $100. You can find and shop GoldenRags ONLINE, INSTAGRAM and also a various flea markets and pop-up shops.

ONLINE ONLY

This shop I’m about to delve into does not have a brick ‘n mortar, so you’ll only find her shop on Etsy. I read about said shops via a fellow vintage fanatic, so obvs I checked it out for myself and LOVED what I saw. Let me introduce to you Beau Monde Vintage, based in Cleveland and owned by the delightful Michelle Miller. Miller has always had a passion for vintage (especially 40s wiggle dresses and 60s mod) and owns a massive personal collection. In July 2011, Michelle turned her love to shop and a good bargain into a business…and so Beau Monde Vintage was born and is housed on Etsy. It offers shoppers a wonderful selection of clothing and accessories that range from a variety of eras and at very generous prices (I’ve seen nothing over $300). Her shop is neatly organized and each piece is perfectly documented with clear photos and descriptions that include size measurements. I can literally spend a good hour or so just browsing her inventory, adding to my wish-list. She updates the shop quite often, as she’s always on the hunt for the prettiest, most unique items for her loyal clients…aka…all you lovely vintage lovers out there!

Check out her shops and let me know…what are your favorite things?
