décollage owner Kelsey Tanner-O’Connor was hooked on vintage fashion from the age of 18. Since then, she’s been slowly building a personal collection of vintage and designer treasures as well as stockpiling for the boutique she would one day own. The collection contains pieces from as far as Asia and as near as around the corner. Chosen with care and restored when necessary, each piece at Décollage is unique and inspiring. Check out the collection at 1219 W. Madison or online at www.shopdecollage.com.
