I'm currently obsessed with Instagram, and am fairly confident I'm not the only one in this boat. Although the platform is very much a tease when it comes to fashion, my feed being flooded with jaw-dropping vintage pieces I need not buy, it's also become a major source of inspiration for me. I love diving in and losing myself in all the photos, especially when it comes to vintage fashion on Instagram!
Below are ten of my favorite vintage Instagram accounts, listed in no particular order. Enjoy. (Oh! And if you're curious as to what we're up to on Instagram, you can find us @DalenaVintage!)
1. Thea's Vintage (@theasvintage)
Thea's Vintage strikes a chord deep within me. Her feed features vintage fashion inspiration, shots of her predominantly 1970s stock and glimpses of her daily life, all with a distinctive bohemian flair. A winning combination in my book.
2. No Carnations Vintage (@nocarnationsvintage)
Considering it's a part-time shop, the continuous beauty presented in the No Carnations Instagram feed never ceases to amaze me. Sheena pays such strong attention to detail in each and every piece she chooses to showcase. It's truly a sight to behold.
3. Galatea Vintage (@ladyghostlegs)
Operated by an Edinburgh-based costumer and dress maker, this Instagram account stokes both my wanderlust and adoration of vintage in a big way. Browsing her photos has me yearning to explore the Scottish countryside, clad in gorgeous vintage dresses all the while.
4. The Velvet Follies (@echerries)
This vintage-loving gal claims to be the bee's knees, and I must say I agree. Her seductive feed is marked by a sensuality reminiscent of Old Hollywood, filling one's head with romanticism.
5. Millay Vintage (@millayvintage)
Millay Vintage maintains a wonderfully polished Instagram account. Her feed features a well-balanced mix of personal images and those from her shop, and while I find them perfectly curated, they're hardly antiseptic, as many other accounts tend to be.
6. Adored Vintage (@adoredvintage)
If you're a vintage lover, chances are you're probably already following Adored Vintage on Instagram. Rodellee's shop is a vintage fashion staple, her feed simply too charming to omit.
7. Gossamer Vintage (@shopgossamer)
Although Gossamer carries all sorts of vintage, their bridal selection seems to shine above the rest of the stock. Their Instagram feed showcases ethereal, one-of-kind garments as well as a sprinkling of vintage home decor, and there's true beauty to be found throughout.
8. Wildfell Hall (@wildfellhall)
Wildfell Hall's Instagram account just makes me smile. Shop owner Amy fills her feed with some of the most coveted vintage around, and her clever captions often leave me giggling to myself.
9. Vixen Vintage (@solanah)
Solanah is kind of like a fairytale princess gone rogue. Her Instagram account juxtaposes modern and vintage styles, femininity and masculity, demureness and rebelliousness and so much more. Intrigued? You should be.
10. Rouge Your Knees (@rougeyourknees)
Rouge Your Knees is a new favorite of mine. This London-based Instagram account consists of the purest vintage, everyday shenanigans and good old-fashioned fun, serving as a daily reminder not to take life too seriously.
