How To Buy Vintage Online

GQ put together what a list of the top 25 vintage shops in the country, and we were sad to see that two of our absolute favorite spots for retro duds were nowhere to be found.

Check out a full list of curvy lovelies with awesome clothes here. [Refinery 29] Keep reading »
