In need of a guilt-free pick me up? These are the best online vintage stores we’ll always come back to

Finding forever secondhand is exactly what the environment needs. So here's your guide to vintage shopping online, courtesy of the minds at RUSSH. From pre-loved designer bags to archival gowns, these are the online vintage stores to know. And you don't even have to leave your front door.


1. Studded Petals

Known for: Pristine Vivienne Westwood, 90s Jean Paul Gaultier, Anna Sui, Dior by Galliano and Fendi.

"I do not gatekeep, but if I was in the business of doing so, I'd keep Studded Petals close to my chest. This is my current favourite vintage shop; not only does it carry a diverse range of sizes (a rare thing in the vintage game), but it's true archival pieces at a fraction of the cost at other stores." – Jasmine Pirovic

Known for: A shoe collection to rival Carrie Bradshaw's and vintage French lingerie.

"With over 700k followers on Instagram, this is one of those situations where if you like something, you're going to have to work fast. Sororité Vintage has earned its hefty following for doling out vintage La Perla and Chantall Thomas bras, slips and bustiers, a sprinkling of vaguely 90s and Y2K designer party dresses, and the true drawcard, it's magnificently curated and regularly updated collection of vintage designer heels. Think Prada mules, Manolo Blahnik slingbacks, Chanel ballet flats and Jimmy Choo sandals." – JP
