In the land of glitz and glam, costume designer Molly Rogers sources the richest vintage spots.

From brilliant kaftans to quirky accessories, costume designer Molly Rogers knows a good vintage find when she sees it, and the very best places to score them in Miami. “Pat [Field] and I used to take the Palm Beach County yellow pages and just get in the car and one by one go into each vintage store listed.” See her favorite stops and shops in this guide to Miami vintage shopping.
