Shooting vintage at McArthurGlen

If you are folowing me on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, listen to the radio, read fashion blogs, and generally don't live under a rock, you are already aware of the awsomeness that has come straight from Florence, Italy to the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet in Athens, Greece.

Yes, I'm talking about the Vintage Festival that is happening as we speak. Once again this year, world-famous vintage collector A.N.G.E.L.O. gathered his amazing collection and set a pop-up vintage boutique inside McArthurGlen, giving us the chance to own unique pieces, made to the standards of another era.

Like this coat above. You know how heavy and luxurious that thing was? Pure wool, amazing constraction, great quality.

Coat by italian label Baratte, 300€. Croc-like leather bag, 45€. Velvet dress, 60€.

The ruby red velvet dress had no label, meaning it was someone's custom order, made by an independent italian tailor. And it's only 60€. For a one-of-a-kind, italian-made velvet dress. Isn't this what vintage shopping is all about?

If you are equally excited, don't take your time. The Vintage Festival will be on until November 3rd, which means you only have one week left! If you need more information, head over at the McArthurGlen website, where you can also participate to win a vintage Chanel bag. Ooh-la-la!

Also, don't be afraid to bring your boyfriends. Even if they don't find something at the menswear section of the Vintage Festival, you can always drop the line "darling, I heard they also have a vintage car exhibition just around the corner" and enjoy some time to shop vintage in peace.

The cars from the Hellenic Motor Museum will keep him company. And the good thing is, only the clothes are for sale.
