We hailed Wolff’s tale of a quirky London clothing boutique and its charmingly conflicted proprietress as “a riveting blend of romance, heartbreak, and humor -- to say nothing of its delightful descriptions of fashion from the 1920s through the 1980s -- A Vintage Affair is vividly colored with endearing characters and lovingly stitched with human sympathy.”
Aside from penning one the summer’s great reads, Isabel offers up some terrific tips to boot:
“If you're buying vintage as an investment, then buy the best you can afford. This means buying garments with a designer or even a couture label. Anything by Dior, Givenchy or Chanel will increase in value, especially if it's kept in good condition.”
“Store vintage garments correctly. Don't hang satin or lace but place the garments between sheets of tissue and lay them carefully in a drawer.”
NOOK owners: go to shop, and search “A Vintage Affair” to download Wolff’s book.
