In these tough economic times, shopping vintage is a great way to show excellent taste without breaking the bank. Even if you do spend a little more than you should, you can rest assured that your purchase, which has already stood the test of time, will continue to do so for years to come. Wearing something vintage more than once isn’t tacky, it’s an homage to the gorgeous designs and detailed craftsmanship of past eras. Where can you get your hands on such precious items, you ask? Well, you’re in luck. Dallasite, Holly Olmstead, owner of Jarma (whose vintage brooches we featured in the spring 2009 issue of D Beauty), normally only hosts private trunk shows but on Thursday, April 30 she will be offering her fantastic finds (including designer clothes, jewelry, handbags and more) to the public at Armoires & More from 11am-4pm. So head on over and get yourself a piece of history that will add class to any outfit for years to come.
