For Gulou-dwelling fashionistas who have run out of shops to sustain their eccentric style, Miss Eliza Vintage is your answer. The owner of the store is Miss Eliza herself, a Beijing-born vintage fanatic with a great sense of style and a love for afternoon tea. The shop is crammed full of finds that have plenty of character, with everything from a hippie rainbow-hued jean jacket to a wide selection of ankle-length plaid woolen skirts. The clothes and accessories are all sourced from Japan and most of the clothing dates back to the ’70s or ’80s.
Dresses, skirts, and blouses from unknown brands all fall in a price range of about RMB300-500 and jackets are priced at about RMB800—bigger brands cost twice that, with one beautiful vintage Yves Saint Laurent jacket priced at RMB2,350. Read the rest of the review here.
