Vintage Treasures at Davis Tisdale

I've had a soft sport for vintage ever since I've had an opinion about my style. One of my best friends introduced me to thrifting when we were in middle school and I never looked back. In fact, the obsession grew to new heights thanks to the rise of eBay and its vintage shop community. We're all familiar with the Nasty Gal story, are we not? Smack dab in the middle of that subculture, there I was, relentlessly placing bids on the vintage pieces I had to have, night after night.

Before long I had implemented a forced self-ban, as my PayPal balance wasn't budging from the red. As my style grew and my fashion philosophy evolved, a hefty part of my wardrobe today remains comprised of secondhand treasures that I've either cherished for years, or that are new and exciting finds.

The only caveat with my vintage infatuation is that (real real talk) I actually hate shopping. I know, this might come as a shock to all of you, but it's the truth: I really can't be bothered. I like buying stuff, but the search part to me is tedious, and I have no patience for it. Doubly so for finding that epic can't-live-without secondhand needle in a haystack. No matter how much I love wearing those kinds of pieces.

Certainly you guys relate to this? That's why I'm obsessed with David Tisdale vintage. Not only is founder Elizabeth the loveliest of humans, but her eye for unearthing the raddest pieces is unparalleled. What I'm getting at is that she does all the curating work for you so that you don't have to sift through mountains of old threads to get to your treasure.

I can personally attest that she's found me many a treasure, this red linen MaxMara number being one of them. I meannnn. Go ahead and see for yourself.
