Vintage SF :: Torso Vintages

While wandering the streets of SF this past weekend, after dim sum at one of my favorite restaurants, I stumbled upon an awesome vintage store, Torso Vintages. This hidden gem is a little off the beaten path, away from the crowded Union Square in all its name-brand fashion retail glory, but after this brightly colored pop art-style vest in the window caught my eye, I just had to go inside and take a look.

Inside, the store was filled with one-of-a-kind clothing, accessories and shoes from all over the world- just the kind of unique things that we here at BARE love! Everything from southwestern-style sweaters to little eighties frocks to retro pillbox hats to bright Lilly Pulitzer-style sheaths to piles of sparkling baubles were on display in this treasure chest of vintage goodies.

This interesting ensemble featured a dress decked out in little Eiffel Tower charms.

A Marilyn poster hung behind a case of vintage pins and an interesting patterned hat paired with a gypsy-style vest and shirt combo.

Note the gauzy dress in the upper left-hand corner.

Torso Vintages is located at:
272 Sutter St.
San Francisco CA
