Back in February, we introduced you to Whurl founder Samantha Kuntz. The ModCloth vet's current endeavor is an app that connects vintage vendors and buyers. Let's say for example you've been dreaming of a 60s floral shift dress for your friend's summer wedding. Just post a photo of something similar and sellers (most of them who also have their own online platform) will shoot you pics of what they have that might fit the bill. Rad, right?
Now there's even more reason to get really psyched about the free app. Kuntz recently had a lookbook shot to preview some soon-to-be-released goodies and in lieu of traditional models, it stars some super-gorge real girls—who also happen to be Whurl shoppers and sellers—and was shot all around Los Angeles (on 35mm film, no Photoshop) by our former style crush Emily Alben.
All of the pieces worn in the stunning, summery series will be ready to add to your virtual basket starting May 2nd. Until then, the lookbook will be serving as our mood board for the cool, nostalgic vibe we're aiming to achieve this season. Thanks for the inspo, Whurl.
