Jill Garland has ventured into retail with V Vintage boutique in Beverly Hills, across the street from Porta Via restaurant, which she co-owns with her husband. An intimate space with a pink and white decor, the vintage jewelry and handbag shop is by appointment only.
Per the LAT, Garland "has been collecting vintage costume jewelry and clutches since she worked behind the jewelry counter at Barneys New York seven years ago," which translates into items such as "a pair of Yves Saint Laurent sterling silver chandelier earrings ($1,200), an eye-catching Nina Ricci coral cabochon bracelet ($425) and a 1967 Christian Dior enamel cuff ($575)."
More affordable pieces include "a '60s Lucite rhinestone cocktail ring for $40, a pair of bright Bakelite bangles for $125 and sterling silver drop earrings for $155." You can get a feel for the boutique above from the LX.TV spot—there's a considerable selection for such a small space.
