Remember the days in school where there was a person or group of that always had a out of the box style not being the most expensive but it made you say "Wow why did I think of rocking it that way" then the next day or so you are trying to replicate that look? That is the best way I can describe my newest find The Vintage Twin (TVT). TVT was founded by twins Morgan and Samantha Elias in 2009. The brand provides an exclusive, affordable, and charitable shopping experience for men, women and home!
I fell in love with this DVF blazer I purchased from TVT, the packaging was a treat for me, who wraps a garment in a vintage McCall's sewing pattern? Sweet!
The Vintage Twin is different from most vintage shops for a few reasons:
1. They REWORK their products- cutting a pair of vintage Levi jeans into shorts and using the salvaged material for Iphone case, turning blouses into cold shoulder blouses, and taking a long skirt and making it short in the front .
2. 10% of all proceeds in store and online go to a charity of your choice: Autism Speaks, National MS Society, Susan G. Komen For The Cure, Make A Wish Foundation, World Wildlife Fund, Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America, Project Morry, and Active Minds.
3. A LIVING section is showcased on the site: vintage prints, vinyl, and furniture oh my!
Of course it wouldn't be a vintage shop without Chanel, TVT carries a few from time to time:
