Mornings With Doris Raymond of The Way We Wore

We like to think that one of the best parts of going eco is turning to vintage fashion for the best in “recycled” clothing. And when it comes to vintage there is rarely an expert like Doris Raymond. Doris is the owner of one of LA’s most famous vintage shops, The Way We Wore, and owner of an impeccable multi-million dollar collection that ranges from ethnic costumes to 18th century accessories. A treasure trove for fashion and film insiders, inside the shop you’ll find amazing pieces like a gold jumpsuit from Chloe by Karl Lagerfeld, 1920’s tunic dresses and always one or more vintage-obsessed celebrities or under-a-deadline costumer designers drooling over the goods.

Tonight wraps up Doris’ first season of the Smithsonian Channel’s L.A. Frock Stars (@8PM and 11PM PST), in which Doris shows viewers an inside look at award season and all the madness that running Hollywood’s top vintage stop brings!

Here’s a glimpse inside a morning at the famed shop with the queen of vintage fashion herself…

  • I can't start my morning without...

    a giant soy latte. Breakfast is always on the run!

  • My favorite part of the morning is...

    pilates.

  • The first websites I hit are...

    1st Dibs, Forbes and the New York Times.

  • Daily uniform:

    Anything in sky blue - my best color.

  • On my feet...

    funky, chunky heels I bought in Germany. So comfortable.

  • To get my creative juices flowing I...

    enjoy talking to the varied and diverse people who visit my store on any given day.

  • My favorite morning distraction is...

    a box of new fashion arrivals!

  • My mantra...

    Follow your bliss! Always challenge your fears and never settle for second best.

  • My best mornings include...

    scoring major museum worthy pieces at thrift store prices. I'm a die-hard bargain shopper.

  • I am sometimes caught day-dreaming about...

    my next trip to some exotic location like Antarctica or the Andes. I find inspiration in travel.

  • What motivates me through my day...

    are my 30 years of experience in the business - vintage is all about passion, preservation and investing.

  • Watch Doris tonight on the season finale of the Smithsonian Channel's L.A. Frock Stars  at 8PM and 11PM PST!
