The Coolest Vintage Site August 17, 2008

I love, love vintage clothes, but I have issues with the search. I can’t tell you how many thrift stores where I’ve pored over piles of clothes, always looking for that perfect find, only to emerge with nothing. Then, there’s the other end of the spectrum, the specialty vintage stores that have the good stuff are pretty pricey. Enter Catwalk Creative, a U.K.-based vintage web site, whose tagline is “quality, fun and affordable vintage, retro and recycled clothes and accessories for the modern girl.” Run by the industrious and talented Louise Sleigh, she does more than just hawk vintage goods—she also offers advice on how to wear vintage and extensive pictures and descriptions. She’s like the perfect vintage shopping pal! Read all about Louise and Catwalk in this Fashion Birdcage interview.

    I agree! Louise has a wonderful vintage website with complete and full descriptions of each item. And great photos. She’s also very honest about any tiny little flaw in the garment so you find no surprises when the item arrives. You always know exactly what you’re buying.

    And she has a great eye for styles and a deep understanding and knowledge of the fashion world. She’s a pleasure to do business with.

    Yes, Louise IS the Vintage Queen in my eyes! Her site is easy to use, and she’s quite the stylist as well. I love her!

    Catwalk Creative is undoubtedly a great site. Can I also point you in the direction of Retro Flower, my own vintage website?

    Louise has many excellent vintage clothing items at Catwalk Creative. She’s one of the most honest and amazing people I have met in a long time (well, met through the Internet). She gives excellent descriptions to her items and also shows you how to pair vintage pieces with contemporary garments.

    You definitely want to check out her shop online!! 🙂
