How did we not hear about this sooner? Maybe the air quality in LA has gotten so bad it has masked the instantly detectable and usually unmistakable smell of rare vintage fashion from our historically well-trained noses. With two other locations already on Melrose and in Santa Monica, Wasteland is hardly a new addition to the city's storescape. Looking as immaculate as the set of a TV show from a nearby production studio, the retail chain opened its third LA area location in Burbank at the end of August. The new store doesn't stray far from the usual fare of potential finds—everything from Gucci purses to leather jackets to vintage cocktail dresses. A selection of books on fashion, art, design and popular culture can also be found in-store. “We have a totally unique collection of clothing, shoes, and accessories, and we are getting new items in every day,” explains co-owners Joe Swinney and Cheryl Cohen. Seek chic vintage of your own at Wasteland in Burbank at 325 N. San Fernando Blvd.
