Instagram is a treasure trove of inspiration and a wonderful place to draw ideas on how to expand or start your vintage wardrobe. Here, we suggest four of our favorite vintage Instagram accounts – whether you’re a seasoned vintage pro or just getting into the world of vintage, these accounts should be added to your Instagram feed, pronto!
Circus Cat Vintage (@circuscatvintage)
From San Francisco, to Phoenix, and down to San Diego, Circus Cat Vintage dominates the vintage scene on the west coast. We particularly love that she models every piece she owns, showing how it looks on a real human body. If you’re looking for dreamy lace dresses, gorgeous patterned kimonos, or flowers galore, you’ll be in good company when you follow Circus Cat Vintage.
You may already know Alexis, of Decotorial, from her band The Ellenwood Kitchen Club, but did you know she's also a vintage fashion dream? Take a step into her virtual closet and see the fabulous looks she creates – from flowers in her hair, 1930s dresses, to beautiful head wraps. We are dying over her Palm Springs playsuit look and hoping to take a getaway soon looking half as good as Alexis does. If you are a fan of a more muted palette, or photos that really give off a vibe of old Hollywood film, you’ll fall in love with Decotorial’s Instagram feed.
Guermantes Vintage (@guermantes.vintage)
“the strange, the singular, the sublime”. Located in Baltimore, MD, Guermantes Vintage features an enviable collection of vintage 1920s-1940s coats, dresses, lingerie, and beach pajamas. From nautical-themed, to Looney Toon rings, Guermantes has something for everyone, no matter what your taste in vintage may be. The stand-out piece for us, however, is the “Spending My Time in Hell” bomber jacket from the 1950’s/60’s (which is sadly sold out and we are insanely jealous of whoever snagged it). Guermantes Vintage is a great account to follow for those who are just getting into vintage fashion – they have a little bit of everything for anyone to try!
Maeberry Vintage (@maeberry_vintage)
From Salt Lake City, Utah, Maeberry Vintage is an Etsy shop that really homes in on the 1970’s decade of fashion. Unique necklines, geometric shapes, and pastel oranges and yellows with hints of blue dominate the palette, giving it a very groovy feel. We also love how the account is mixed with editorial photos, as well as photos of the store owner in her life with her own collection. If you’re looking for some 70’s flower power inspiration with a mix of hippie and boho, Maeberry Vintage is the account to follow!Which one of these accounts is your favorite?
