Kristen’s “Unique” Customer Story



I just got married on November 4th and wanted to give you a shout out about how awesome my dress was!  I bought my dress from Unique Vintage about a year before my wedding.  I knew from the moment I saw it that was what I wanted my wedding dress to look like.  I am obsessed with the 1940′s style! 
I chose to take off the straps that came on the dress, just to make it a little more formal and I am so happy with how it turned out and my husband thought I looked gorgeous.  Plus I paid less than $150 for my wedding dress!

We met at a pool that we both train at so being by the water for our wedding was important.  We are very untraditonal and really wanted a laid back wedding.  We had a taco truck cater our wedding and even had a ping pong table at our reception.  
We took a lot of photos in Laguna Beach on the only day it has rained in Southern California in the last 6 months.  Haha.  We also got a chance to stop by Ruby’s in Laguna Beach and did get some sweet shots in front of their old cars.  I LOVE my photos.  Our photographer is very vintage inspired and she did an awesome job.  (her name is Tamara and she owns Face On by Tamara-just to get a plug in there for her outstanding photos you can find her work on Facebook!)

If you happen to live in LA, there is a totally mod fashion exhibition happening right now at the Pacific Design Center. “The Total Look” focuses on edgy clothing and images that seem as relevant today as they did in the ’60s.

Running now through May 27, the show depicts the creative collaboration between designer Rudi Gernreich, his model and muse Peggy Moffitt and Moffitt’s late husband, the photographer William Claxton, who created the distinctive images of Moffitt activating Gernreich’s designs. The exhibition will feature selected looks from Moffitt’s definitive collection, with films and photographs by Claxton of Moffitt modeling the clothes. “Fashion will go out of fashion” is one of Gernreich’s many memorable declarations, but his designs continue to resonate, looking contemporary 50 years after they were made.
