My winning smile.

Risky Business Inspired
Bright Pink Lips for Summer

Modern Vintage Today original pieces
"La vida es una tombola", meaning life is a raffle. Some days you feel like you're on top of the world, while other days you just want to explode... But on those certain days when life is giving me putasos left and right, my solution is a winning smile and killer outfit. Which is why I'm so happy to have found the mecca of confident clothes-meet my latest obsession-MODERN VINTAGE TODAY(MVT). A boutique store focusing on updating vintage clothing by slightly altering them, breathing new air into them.

MODERN VINTAGE TODAY, is less than 2 months old and is already creating a buzz here in the Los Angeles fashion scene. Started off by childhood friends Mary Moutry and Jenifer Lewis, these fashionistas are sharing their sense of awesome style via MVT. "If you are going to wear something from our store, you better be confident. Confidence is everything..." said owner Mary in regards to her clothes. And when looking around the store it is clear that confidence is required for some of their clothes. Fur coats, sparkly dresses and outrageous colors create a visual palette that even Van Gogh would envy.

"Modern Vintage Today also provides services such as,personal styling, personal shopper, alterations tailored to fit etc." Having a tailor at a vintage is store is so rare yet necessary, make your clothes more personal, and fit you exactly to your body type. Another great thing about this store is their incredible affordable prices and if you show your student i.d. you get 10% off! (Coolness!).  With Summer parties just around the corner, check out MVT and create that look that screams, "Look @ me now" and makes you feel like your always #WINNING.
