Vintage Stores in Rome

Abiti Usati Vintage is exactly how I like my vintage stores - packed to the brim with beautiful fur coats, sequin dresses, fedoras, shoes and designer bags. Oh, and if you’re looking for a pair of Converse you’ve come to the right place. Situated on Via del Governo Vecchio, it is a little tricky to find but once you’re there you will be tempted to stay for hours and try on every piece. They even have a really good selection of men’s jackets in the form of Barbour, denim and military to keep the boyf well entertained while you choose the perfect ensemble.

Just a little down the road from Abiti Usati is Vestiti Usati Cinzia or “Cinzia”, a little boutique-style vintage store – something I’m not really keen on – but nonetheless has really beautiful and lust-worthy pieces. Most of which are too beautiful to sell, unfortunately. I saw the most amazing pair of crochet bikinis (although a little too risqué for my taste) a sequin brassiere (which my lovely friend back in London would go nuts for) and a stunning crochet sun-hat with flower appliqué which I instantly fell in love with – it truly spoke to the inner hippie in me, until I realised that it wasn’t for sale. Cinzia is not exactly how I like my vintage but is certainly well worth the visit.
