How often have we all scoped some stranger’s style, spent like fifteen minutes working up the courage to go up to her and ask where she got that paisley velvet blouse/perfect denim jacket/pair of neon-pink saddle shoes so we could go buy the same thing for ourselves, and then wilted with disappointment after finding out that the whatever-it-was we were coveting is a one-of-a-kind vintage score?
I mean, let’s face it: all the best stuff is vintage these days, but thrift shops can be… well, kind of intimidating. Either they’re filled with junk, which means that finding a gem amidst rows upon rows of smelly old sneakers could take all day, or the entire store is so perfectly curated that the entire experience feels like sensory overload. What’s a style-conscious millennial with a healthy appreciation for old things supposed to do?!
Luckily, Parker and Riley Halliday have our backs. In their latest video, they offer up some key tips on landing the statement piece of your dreams (#3 is genius). Before you know it, strangers will be stopping you on the street for style tips—and you can be like, “Oh, this 1950s varsity jacket/bubble skirt made out of pleather/hand-dyed silk turban? It’s vintage.”
