I have been collecting vintage clothing for over 25 years. I started my business, Posies for Lulu Vintage, by selling from my own collection, but now that I have a thriving business, I get to travel the world to find more and more amazing pieces for you!
I grew up in Los Angeles in the early 70s with my beautiful hippie mom. She was a seamstress for rock bands in Hollywood in the 60s. She made all of her own clothes and mine too! Those days of Flower Children and Rock 'n Rollers, bright colors and Indian tapestries always stuck with me and inspired me.
When I started collecting vintage, I was 18 and living near San Francisco, then Portland and Seattle, all of which in the 80s and 90s, were the prime cities to get the most beautiful and eclectic vintage pieces!
I love the styles, cuts and colors of clothing from a different era, and wearing a one of a kind piece, style it with something modern, and make it my own!
*I am also a metalsmith! I have a jewelry bench in my home and specialize in minimalist 14k gold, super thin wedding bands! Check out my other shop: rainaleestudios.etsy.com
