My friend Ada Calhoun wrote about vintage shopping for New York Magazine. Below is an excerpt.

“I wish I could wear more vintage things,” says one young friend of mine. “I guess it’s because everything that I like is very expensive at this point because things are so ‘curated.’ Also, being a slightly larger lady with hips and a bust, it’s really, really hard to find things in my size that are also affordable, cute, and in good condition. I looked for about a year for a true vintage dress for my sister’s wedding and everything I found that came close to being the right thing was either $300 or more, or built for a tiny person.”
