The Vintage Studio marries boutique shopping with vintage pieces for first-rate style

The word vintage is often qualified by positive adjectives, especially when applied to wine, scotch, or clothing that has aged particularly well. But here’s a tip: One definition of vintage is superior. Who knew?

The Vintage Studio is superior, thanks to owner Karen Kinney-McMullan’s own collecting experience and past lives as a fashion designer and trend forecaster.

If you love the aesthetics, but not the price tags, of Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch, or J. Crew, this is heaven. I spied a pair of embellished pumps that could have walked down Jacobs’s runway, and bright coral and pink jewelry that screamed Tory Burch or Kate Spade—at a tenth the price. An impeccably tailored silver-sequin sleeved dress that could easily command a grand from the J. Crew Collection sells here for less than $100.
So when you wear your new pieces out on the town, don’t qualify them as mint. Especially if you found them here.
