Shareen Vintage is one of those not-a-secret secrets. Owner Shareen Mitchell's eye for secondhand clothing is famous among dedicated followers of fashion, but her two locations—one in downtown LA, one on the second floor of a building on 17th Street in Chelsea—still feel like cult clubhouses, what with their odd hours and the personal attention sales associates give to each customer. Shareen's fame is about to grow, though: At 10:30pm on April 19, the Discovery Channel spinoff Planet Green will begin airing Dresscue Me, a reality show the business. After the jump, watch as Mitchell helps a bride pick out a flirty dress for her wedding reception—crushing the self-esteem of one of her employees in the process.
