If your summer wardrobe could use a retro upgrade, this weekend's your chance to do your closet (and the earth) good. Treasure hunters are in for a treat starting this Saturday, August 1st, when essential vintage shop (and LA Frock Stars star) The Way We Wore's semi-annual sale officially begins.
Everything on the first floor will be going for 50% off, excluding merch in display cases and items otherwise marked. Expect to find pre-loved pieces like 1920s silk numbers, New Look party dresses, '70s swimsuits, sexy underpinnings, and other pristine gems from decades past. As far as labels, Gucci, Comme des Garçons, Thierry Mugler, Dolce & Gabbana, Dries Van Noten, Oscar de la Renta, and so much more. The sale runs for the entire month of August, so you've got 31 full days to score.
