If you snoozed on last weekend's A Current Affair, there's still hope for your wardrobe's retro makeover. Next month, the Vintage Fashion Expo will invade The Reef's second floor for a full weekend of fall treasure hunting in DTLA.
Happening Saturday, October 17th (10:30am to 6pm) and Sunday, October 18th (11am to 5pm), the shopping party will feature over 40 women's and men's apparel, footwear, jewelry and acsssories exhibitors from near and far, including Vintage Blue Moon, Regeneration Vintage, Allyn Scura Eyewear, and Antiques Roadshow appraiser Steven Porterfield of Texas's A Cat's Meow. That's not all: we're told that burlesque star Dita Von Teese will also be selling her closet castoffs alongside her new vintage-inspired lingerie label and signing copies of her soon-to-drop beauty book co-penned by A+R's Rose Apodaca.
Advanced tickets are $27.37 (including fees) for early bird entrance at 9:30am on Saturday, $13 for general entry both days, and $6.27 student admission on Sunday; buy them online here. Otherwise, door prices are $15 each day or $20 for a weekend pass.
