FabFinds: Urban Renewal by Urban Outfitters


A few weeks ago, while taking cover in Urban Outfitters, I found this 1980’s pastel, sequin dress.  Part of their Vintage Collection called “Urban Renewal”, some of the pieces are remade from fabric of vintage pieces while others are sold as is.  Apparently, this has been around for a long time, which makes me wonder…have I been living under a rock?  What could be better than vintage pieces picked by the fabulous, hipstery buyers of Urban Outfitters?







The coat is from a Colombian designer I encountered while in Bogota three years ago…  I love the sheen of the fabric and the impeccable tailoring.  www.julietasuarez.com.

Accessories include a vintage hat I embellished with brooches and Jimmy Choo stilettos I embellished with clip-on earrings and shoe-clips.



The necklace is from my favorite little-known W Boutique, and the earrings are vintage and under-stated.

  1. Just discovered your blog and I’m already hooked! (I must’ve done wonders for your bounce rate, haha). Everything about your blog is beautiful, and it’s so great to see that someone else in the city is ready to rock a vintage hat… sometimes I feel like I’m the only one!
