Eat Your M&Ms and Veggies Before Vintage Shopping!

Who: Hannah Vander Linden

What: Vintage brown dress

Imonni’s in Long Beach, CA

How Much:

When I Use It:
“I wore it to my homecoming dance. The theme was the Golden Age of Hollywood. Now I wear the outfit to weddings, church, and every where else you can imagine. It’s the perfect conservative dress, but at the same time shows off my best assets.”

Shopping Tips: “EAT. Believe me, not even the most beautiful dress will look good if you feel horrible. I know if I don’t eat a decent meal before heading out, I get fatigued and irritated after a few hours of shopping. So my advice is to eat a meal beforehand, and eat some snacks while on your hunt for a vintage treasure. Cucumbers, baby carrots, and peanut M&Ms are some of my favorites!”

    Great dress! I love 50’s shirt dresses. And, I totally agree with your shopping tip; I usually throw a granola bar or the like in my purse for the trip to keep me sane and sated.

    what great advice!! I always find the minute I stop for lunch on a shopping trip my motivation goes, but if I don’t stop I can’t concentrate.
    and any advice that involves M&Ms has to be good advice!!
