Who: Vanessa from Take Only Memories

What: 1940s dress

Where: Family Jewels Vintage Clothing on 23rd Street, New York City

How much: “$40 on the sale rack. The seams were coming apart here and there, but it was fixable.”

When I use it: “I wear it all the time. It’s so easy to style and I love the color. The fabric is really heavy which makes it fall beautifully.”

Shopping tips: “I always check the sale racks. Usually little quirks are easily fixable!”
