A few weeks back, I visited a fantastic little shop called Doubletake Recycled Luxury Boutique located in the Inman Park/Old Fourth Ward district of Atlanta. The boutique is owned by master shopper/scavenger/treasure finder Daniel Troppy. Operating under the motto “luxury should be affordable for everyone,” Mr. Troppy stocks his store with labels hand-picked from his daily trips to Goodwills, thrift stores, estate sales, and consignment shops. I was completely in love with his entire selection, and I walked out with a vintage Diane Von Furstenberg kimono (which I wore in this outfit shoot), a vintage Pierre Cardin navy blouse, and an adorable Free People vest. My total for all three? $91, including tax. AMAZING.

In a city overrun with gigantic shopping malls, Doubletake is such a beautiful change of pace, without the high boutique prices. Filled with one of a kind finds, I definitely left feeling like I scored some treasures. I’m also still thinking about a vintage Burberry sweater and awesome gold vest I left behind…

Oh well, next time!

If you’re ever in Atlanta, I highly suggest going on an adventure to Doubletake. Check out some of the selection and get store hours over on the Doubletake blog or on Daniel’s other blog, The Thrifters.
