Elysian Street Sunset Boulevard

Sometimes I Splurge

Kimberly Alfaro

I’m on my way to work. I’m a personal assistant at a vintage clothing store. We collect Prada, Gucci, and one-of-a-kind pieces from the 1900s to the 1990s. One of the best pieces I’ve ever seen was a 1910s dress in perfect condition. It was really fantastic.

Sometimes it’s hard to hold myself back—we get the most beautiful vintage items, but they are expensive. Sometimes I splurge. I bought these pieces I’m wearing. This is one of my favorite outfits to wear.
