There's nothing I take more pride in than my collection of vintage luxury items. Just thinking about the lives that these pieces must have lived before they fell into my hands makes my head spin. Whether it's the Miu Miu skirt that I bought for a bargain right before the brand blew up or the Khaite blouse that's from the brand's first collection, each piece has a story of its own. It's been a very busy year and I haven't been able to find the time to dig through the internet to find these special pieces, so my New Year's resolution in 2023 will be to acquire more vintage finds.

The invention of the internet is truly life-changing. I'm not really one for sorting through thrift store bargain bins, but scrolling through carefully curated websites like The RealReal, Fashionphile, What Goes Around Comes AroundRebag, and more will always warm my heart. Below, find the first 30 pieces that I'm considering adding to my vintage designer collection.

Sierra Mayhew was always destined to work in fashion, but she didn't know it at first. Growing up with no choice but to wear a rotation of school uniforms and activewear, her love for fashion really blossomed when she moved away for college and was able to finally define her very own personal style. Shortly thereafter, she interned at Elle magazine and instantly knew that editorial was for her. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame, she worked for ShopBazaar, contributing regularly to, and finally made her way to Who What Wear, where she is an associate editor. When she’s not working, you can catch her always trying to catch a flight, rollerblading through New York City traffic, or exploring the latest luxury vintage boutique.
