I’ve often professed my interest in vintage apparel, but with a short attention span and a lack of focus I have never been able to seriously scour the racks for a good find. We’ve heard countless reasons for buying vintage including the facts that it is resourceful, one-of-a-kind, and generally higher quality materials. Karmaloop is home to many bona fide vintage hunters, with many of them selling on Kazbah, Plndr, or Etsy, and I’m hoping that in 2012 I can learn some of their tricks. If you’re in the same camp as me, why not fulfill this sartorial promise with a New Year’s Eve dress? Great way to put your resolution to work! Here are some of our picks for satisfying party pieces, all from *Vintage Boutique.
