Great Vintage Store on the Lower East Side: "Don the Verb"

You know I am a huge vintage shopper. So a few months ago when I stumbled upon a new store, Don the Verb, I was terribly excited. Yanina who runs the shop has a great selection of streamlined pieces, all carefully picked to represent a superb offering of sharp tailoring and impeccable taste. She has a wonderful collection of vintage French hair bows, stunning bags and great coat collection among other items. For those in the trade, there is also an archive of rare and exciting vintage French couture, 80's London street fashion and more for shoots and the like. Newly opened (in the Fall) I encourage all of you to stop by.

For those of you from out of town/country (which I know there are a great many) below and above is a selection of beautiful shots from the website showcasing some of her pieces for your fashion inspiration.

Note the alligator bag in the 3rd shot, I nearly bought this, its an amazing bag. Very Chanel-like in its boxish shape but in wild alligator like you can't find today. I believe it was around 365$, maybe a bit more, an excellent price anyway.

Aren't these photos great? Talk about evoking old world glamour, right?

Enjoy!
