Brand-new silk shirts are fantastic—except when the cost eats up your entire month’s clothing budget. Vintage silk tops that are still in good condition can be hard to find in thrift stores, but did you know there are tons on Etsy? Yep. Brown Bag Vintage has great pieces, and—bonus—the owner actually works for Etsy, so you know you can trust the quality.
Unlike most things I buy today, vintage coats are made to last, and they're so well-tailored. The only thing to worry about is moth holes. Most sellers give very detailed descriptions about the garment (read carefully); if not, send them a message and get all the info before you shell out your cash.
