At a glance it's hard to believe that every piece in Anna Rafferty's polished look was thrifted. Her statement-print kimono, for example, set her back a mere $3 at a Village Discount Outlet in Little Village. The self-described "modern maximalist" started a vintage clothing shop on Etsy dubbed Barbie Roadkill to tide her over while she looked for a "real" job, but it turned out to be so successful that it became her full-time gig. Rafferty recently began selling her finds at Festive Collective, a new party goods and design store in Logan Square owned by her friend Angela Wator. "She asked me to curate a rack of party-caliber vintage to go with the colorful, sparkly aesthetic of the shop. I change up the products featured there every month, depending on the season," she says. "Right now I'm on the hunt for metallic lamé tops and tartan-plaid skirts for early fall."
