What Makes It Awesome

Although Carol's Shop has been around for quite some time, we seemed to have had a serendipitous discovery of it recently. Carol Humtsoe is a model who turned into an entrepreneur when she turned her passion and lifestyle choices in to a business. 

Carol runs an Instagram shop that retails super chic, yet offbeat vintage clothes. You can expect pieces like bright pink, paisley printed, flared bell bottoms, vintage, victorian era collared blouses, unique sequined dresses, frilled and pleated metallic skirts, they have it all! Carol curates and collects all these vintage pieces from her travels across places like Nepal, Dharamshala, Rishikesh, Delhi, Bombay, Bangkok, Nagaland and New York.

What we love is that Carol's Shop & Tea Room is among the first few 'thrift' stores in India. She believes in promoting slow fashion, and her way of doing it is by retailing singly produced, unique vintage garments. The clothes of this Instagram shop are  usually priced between INR 3,500 to INR 7,000. 

What Could Be Better

The clothes they have are pricey, so you may not want to regularly shell out cash for shopping from them. 

Pro-Tip

They are currently not delivering but frequently update their page (@carols.shop) with new collections. So, ping them and they'll let you know about the delivery status.

Two Things; 1.) I like to think I live life with rose coloured glasses on, but really they’re black, and I can’t see a thing. (And to be honest, that helps in unseeing the humongous sattire and mess the world is). 2.) Mostly fumbling and staggering through life as gracefully as I can, with an occasional glass of wine here and there.
