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 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!
That pink dress was/is adorable. I swear, it was MEANT for you.
I love that photo with the discarded mannequins (sp) and the, THE END, sign. It’s a work of art in its own right!
I’m anxiously awaiting the red velvet cupcake recipe. Hurry girl…I’m baking for my daughters wedding in less than three week.
Joy! I just saw that you are coming to SF next month and I think you should have a picnic here too! Confession: I know you come up to the East Bay semi frequently to visit your luvah and sistah and I’m always secretly hoping I run into yu at the Southwest Terminal since I fly to LA a lot to visit familia but live in Berkeley. My BF says that my dream of casually bumping into you is sweet but I think he may be an enabler.
Anywho, if you’re not too busy when you’re up here for the conference or if you’re up here some other time and feel the urge to have a picnic part deuce, I would support that! I would also bring a pie.
What a cool place, wish it were close to me (or I was close to it)!
