In the world of vintage shopping, there are bargain hunters, flea-market browsers, and casual thrifters...and then there's Dree Harper. A Florida-based style expert who wears many hats — both literally and figuratively, Harper traces her love of vintage back to her weekly childhood visits to the local thrift store with her mom. Since then, she's parlayed her knack for uncovering amazing finds into an ultra-successful career as a stylist, personal shopper, fashion contributor, and blogger behind Create That Style.
So, when Harper agreed to find time in her hectic schedule to curate a collection of one-of-a-kind gems just for us, we knew we were in for a treat — and trust, she didn't disappoint. Chock-full of designer bags and keep-forever jewels, Dree's finds (all available on R29 Shops) are the stuff of vintage dreams. Ahead, the can't-pass-'em-up pieces we're coveting, plus style tips from the pro herself. Grab a pen, vintage lovers, you're going to want to take notes.
