We had the most amazing local write up on the Reno Mom's Blog! Read it HERE.
I spent Sunday morning with Meagan from the Reno Mom's Blog and had a blast chatting with her and watching her try things on. She ended up taking home a Marc Jacobs top and our Bless'ed are the Meek Gold was Brought dress, both of which looked incredible on her.
If Reno had a "Best Looking Moms" award, Meagan would be a serious candidate.
This dress has the most amazing detailing. The hardware unscrews and the dress doubles as a top.
Seeing our customers try on our clothing in person has to be my favorite part of my job.
Thrifted & Modern is officially open at 3434 Lakeside Drive in Reno, Nevada! We have traded in our archival tissue paper for hangers and have set up shop on the corner of Moana and Lakeside in the old Red Chair space (don't worry Aaryn from Red Chair is still killing it in a 5000+ sq ft space a few doors down).
We have over 750 vintage, couture, designer and modern pieces ready to try on in our artificial turf covered dressing room; vintage party dresses, shoes, designer bags, coats, jackets, suits, sweaters and skirts. Designer labels include: Chanel, Saint Laurent, Valentino, Dior, Moschino, Dolce & Gabbana, Sonia Rykiel, Bill Blass, Giorgio Sant'Angelo, Ferragamo, Escada, St. John, Adolfo, Donald Brooks, Nina Ricci, Chloe, Karl Lagerfeld, Roberta di Camerino, Claude Montana, Marc Jacobs, Krizia, Byblos, Ted Lapidus, Malcolm Starr, Andre Laug, Burberry's, Gianfranco Ferre, Carolina Herrera, Givenchy, Mugler, Cardin, Norma Kamali and more. Our vintage clothing section features 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 70s, 80s, and 90s clothing that has been hand selected and prescreened for quality.
Business will continue as usual online, so if you aren't local to the Reno/ Tahoe area don't worry. We will continue to stock extraordinary vintage and contemporary clothing online on 1st Dibs and through our website at http://thriftedandmodern.com/. Still, it might be worthwhile to book a vacation on Lake Tahoe this summer?
Below are behind-the-scenes snaps from our soft opening (yes, our check out counter is a DIY vintage Marie Callendar's pie case turned terrarium):

One of the things I love about fashion is acceptance of hypocrisy. One season you are judging a certain shoe and the next season you are wearing that same shoe. I once banned the color silver for an entire five years. Guess what my wedding ring is made from? You guessed it: platinum.
Our fashion loves and hates are shamelessly inconsistent and I applaud the sanction to change our minds. We are talking about fashion here people, not human core values. Stop taking yourselves so seriously.
Which brings me to the topic of Birkenstocks. My mother bought me my first pair as a kid and I wore them until the cork pitted out and the suede was covered in brown water stains. I went through a few more pairs after that, loving every minute of it. My wide feet had finally found a home on a springy bed of cork and leather.
Sometime during high school, I decided I was punk rock and Birkenstocks were a thing for smelly hippies. I was obviously cooler than that and wanted no part in it. My Birks were traded in for Dr. Martens and were given no further thought until now.
Birkenstocks are back! Semi-old news maybe. But I love declaring that I love a shoe I once hated. I love declaring that I love a shoe I once hated and loved before I hated it. Doesn't that feel good? Its fashion. I am allowed to change my mind.
There is no denying our new wardrobe stylist Josie Cabrera has amazing personal style. The second this New York transplant breezed into our studio last January, it was style love at first sight. This girl gets it let me tell you.
Amidst the confusion of moving studios and battling our scummy new landlord (we have to move again), I haven't had a chance to properly introduce Josie and sing her the praises she deserves. Be sure and check out her website here. She also shoots some pretty awesome analog photography and has a kickass personal Pinterest here.
We snapped a few photos outside the studio to show you how Josie wears some of our pieces. She is pretty much living in our Audre Lace Up Heels (named for my buddy Audre who owns Bolo Vintage) and these ripped up vintage jeans.
Here she has paired our Dragonfly Tee by Evil Twin with her fave jeans and shoes. The iridescent green sleeves on this top just kill me. I do have to mention that there are matching Dragonfly Shorts just in case you haven't seen them. The shoes are $48 here and the top is $65 here.
