(VIDEO) Vintage boutique style is today’s new trend. The vintage boutiques today have a new flare for presenting time-honored merchandise. “Everything old is new again” is the perfect phase to describe vintage trending.

Upscale fashion magazines like Elle, have written articles about the vintage shop surge. Megan Cahn, Fashion Advisor at Elle says,” we had so many inquiries from avid vintage shoppers that we sent our research team to locate some The Best Vintage Stores in America. “With every street-style girl in hot pursuit of vintage finds, it is all about the thrill of the chase.”

Remnants on Mill in Santa Paula, California should be one of the first to visit on your vintage boutique list. This is a good place to find exclusive merchandise from different eras.

“The great thing about vintage shops is they are so diverse, “says Katherine, an Interior Designer. “It does not depend on your style; it’s in regard to your taste.” Two week-ends a month I meet my best friend, and we go to our local vintage shop to see what is new. We have found amazing buys that we could never find at the mall. I receive compliments on all my buys from clothing for myself, to home décor for clients. “It is just amazing what you can find!”

Amy McLaughlin is a lifestyle designer with sixteen years of experience suggests, “If you really want your home to look more opulent, hit your local consignment store (i.e. Remnant on Mill).”

She advises her clients on the art of living well, and provides a broad range of design services. Amy has been featured in The Boston Herald, CBS Soaps In Depth, OC Lifestyles, the Newport Beach Magazine, and numerous other magazines. She has worked with celebrities, socialites and high-profile executives as well as private clients.

Take a tip from the experts. Visit vintage boutiques, and see why every street-style girl is in hot pursuit of vintage finds.
