Chic in the City has organized a special shopping tour for all the vintage clothing lovers out there, writes Eleanor Griffin.
For those wishing to deck themselves out in vintage clothing, Chic in the City has created a shopping tour called The Vintage Express which stops at select retro stores around Sydney. The quirky trip reveals boutiques that stock original clothing and accessories ranging from the 1930s to the present day, and vintage clothing stylist Vera (aka Morgan Lefay) will be there to guide buyers through the different trends and fashions, from classic to kitsch. Also included are VIP discounts, champagne and a gift bag. The journey starts in Surry Hills at 10:15am, and when the bags are full hop on the mini bus to continue to the next shop for three hours of treasure hunting which finishes at the Fringe Vintage markets. The tours start on 5 December and are held on the first Saturday of each month.
