Vintage Valentino!

Who: Valencia Lia, of Roll Up Your Sleeve

What: Vintage over-sized Valentino blazer

Where: The Oppt Shop at Heeren (but has since closed down)

How Much: SGD $32

When I use It: Countless times! I’ve used it to jazz up any outfit when I feel that I’m missing something! Over short dresses or just a plain old tee and denim cutoffs. And it never fails to keep me warm and I love, love the checkered design it has at the bottom of the blazer! Its one of my go-to pieces in the closet.

Shopping Tips: Always make friends with the owners, and shop more at vintage and thrift stores! Even though huge stores have many things, I feel that it’s these little stores where you find precious gems. Always dig deep in those racks or those bargain bins. Making friends with the owners is always good, because sometimes you get a little more of a discount, and will be updated when anything new arrives.

    I have a vintage Valentino too! The quality is perfect and I am sure any women would feel like royalty in one of his gowns. Is there any more information on Valentino’s Night Collection for collectors? I would like to know a little more about my dress…
