Here's another frock-filled vintage shop to add to your LA treasure hunting radar, especially if you require luxe bijoux within arm's length. Well-stocked e-shop The Kit Vintage has invaded red carpet gem haven Platt Jewelry, where they've carved away a corner for their first brick-and-mortar shopping experience in West Hollywood.
Located in a 250-square-foot space within the estate jewelry boutique, Kit Vintage owner Robyn Goldberg tells us she keeps a curated selection of pre-loved pieces that are "cohesive with the jewelry that is sold at Platt Boutique—many of [their] clients come in for engagement rings and wedding bands. Knowing that they are already vintage fans, my vintage clothing collection is made up of many great pieces for their upcoming special occasions." Expect to find beaded gowns, sequined cocktail dresses, daytime jumpsuits and more from the '30s through the '90s, including from high-end designers like Oscar de la Renta, Hanae Mori, and Missoni alongside lesser-known contemporary labels of past decades.
The Kit Vintage at Platt Jewelry Boutique is open Monday through Saturday from 11am to 6pm.
