The Vintage Studio, an enchanting shop in Minneapolis, held me hostage for several hours on an afternoon of adventure. Whenever I travel, not only do I track down hat shops and milliners; I also explore the area’s vintage shops, antique markets, and sometimes I find consignment stores of interest. Three pairs of $12 vintage clip-on earrings from a vast selection escaped with The SC, along with a hat that will reveal itself in the spring. I’m sure these beauties will find the perfect outfit to embellish over the coming months or years. I am easily seduced by color and movement in my accessories!
The studio is owned by Karen Kinney-McMullan HERE , who has a curated collection of beautiful pieces from the 50’s through the 80’s. She moved from NYC to Minneapolis about a year ago, and combined her passion for vintage with her professional background in fashion design and trend forecasting to manifest her creation. Karen’s mantra is, ‘Vintage is for everybody! Because every trend recycles, anyone can work vintage into their wardrobe, even if it’s just jewelry.’ The Style Crone wholeheartedly agrees!
