First and foremost, I'm a mom!
I can't think of a better or more rewarding job in the world. I know it sounds totally cliché! Sorry, it's a mom thing and I just can't help it.
I have a degree in Fashion Design from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, Los Angeles. Lucky for me, I come from a family of artists. While most parents might try to discourage their kids from pursuing a career in art, mine didn't. I took my life long love of art and fashion, and went to fashion school!
My love for all things vintage started at a very young age. There's just something so interesting and magical about antiques and vintage. The smells, the quality, and the idea that these items have lived previous lives. I often imagine that things from my own vintage collection were once cherished belongings of someone else, many years ago.
Second Wind Vintage is a marriage of my love for vintage and my obsession with and training in fashion.
I pick up things I like, whether I keep it or pass it along to you, it means something to me.
Call me Dan, Dani, Danielle, or Mom
