Secret Vintage Wonderland

Shareen Vintage, downtown 

Shareen.  Do you know Shareen Vintage?

Oooooooh my word.  Should I tell you about Shareen?

Shareen Vintage is a wonderland of vintage dresses.  Ok… I’m about to combine three concepts that you probably thing an impossibility in combination: reasonably priced, magnificent condition, vintage dresses.  Yes.  It’s true.  These concepts all work together at Shareen Vintage in downtown Los Angeles.  I ain’t lyin’.   

Here’s the skinny on Shareen.  Her warehouse is located in a super obscure part of downtown Los Angeles.  You’ll seriously question your GPS finding this place.  You’ll know you’re in the right place when you see the bodies at the end of the road.

Shareen Vintage, downtown 

Shareen Vintage is only open two days a week, and there are noooooo boys allowed inside.  Why no boys?  There are no dressing rooms in her secret garden of vintage dresses.  Girls try clothes on around a giant bed she has fashioned in her warehouse, or beside a couch and coffee table set up… really, just wherever you can find a spot next to a mirror.  Wear your pretty bra and underwear… I’m just sayin’.  

My pretty pink picnic dress?  Shareen Vintage.  I couldn’t believe how cheap it was.  Holy heck.  I’m a believer.  

So… now you know the secret:  Shareen. Vintage.  Downtown.  If you find yourself at the warehouse any given Wednesday or Saturday, please just save me some good stuff… in a size six.  It’s only polite… sweet, thanks!

  1. I so wish I knew about this place while we were in LA. But I am so glad you are sharing your find now Joy. The dresses look so fun and sweet, next time I am in LA I am there!

    Your dress was adorable, my daughter loved it too!

  2. Oh! And it’s open three days a week, Wednesdays too. She also opens on Thursday evening every month. Next one on Sept. 4 with wine and cheese and a talk with a music writer. :)

  3. Dang, wish I knew about this place a few months ago! I used to be in the LA area once a month but not anymore [my long distance relationship is now kaput :( ]

    Sounds like a great place to score some awesome goods!

    1. Oooh Jayme! I’m sorry! It sounds like you might just have to make a special trip down for Shareen shopping with me! I’ll buy wine and lunch after shopping….!

  4. Now I know where that rockin’ dress came from that you had on for the picnic–wishing i lived closer, both for the cupcakes and for the beautiful vintage frocks!!

  5. Oooh I’ve been wanting to go and check out Shareen, but the reviews on Yelp have really put the fear in me. Is she really kinda mean in person if she doesn’t think a dress will look good on you?

    1. Shareen isn’t bad at all! Shes’ a little kooky, but actually seems very nice. She tried to doll up a dress I tried on with a belt, and then fluttered off to dress up other girls. Not mean. Odd and funny… but not mean.
