Hailing from the UK, Sarah Radcliffe founder of Yo Vintage, is a master curator of one of a kind retro finds. Inspired by everything from runway fashions to street style, Yo Vintage offers a unique design taste for the inner trend setter in all of us. Located in the heart of downtown Portland, not too far from b-glowing HQ, we couldn't think of a better designer for our Summer Beauty Bag. We got the chance to stop by the shop and chat with Sarah a little about her shop and the bag.
Q: Tell us about Yo! Vintage. What's it all about? What was your inspiration?
A: Yo Vintage! was originally a vintage online shop ran out of my basement, but 2 years ago we opened the doors to our first brick and mortar store in downtown Portland, Or. We still stock vintage, but have expanded into a small selection of new clothing, local jewelry and rad home wares from Europe! It's basically an extension of my wardrobe and home with all the things I like!
Q: What do you look for when hunting for vintage pieces for your shop?
A: I love Instagram and Pinterest and follow lots of street style, fashion magazines and friends so am inspired by what they are wearing or what's trending now when shopping!
Q: What is your personal style and how does it influence Yo! Vintage?
A: It really depends of what the weather is like here and how I'm feeling - also it depends on how much running around I am doing that day - but you can't go wrong with a jumpsuit!
Q: What was your inspiration for the design of the Yo! bag?
A: I travel so much and am always losing my boarding passes, passport and key make up items when traveling so wanted something that was practical, cute that I could use again and again!
