About Dagmar Rose Vintage

Dagmar Rose Vintage was created by Cara Alwill Leyba, author and creator of the popular blog, The Champagne Diet.

A collection of glamorously curated, designer vintage, Dagmar Rose is more than a vintage boutique - it's an energy.

As a creative entrepreneur with a passion for style and all things glittering, Cara always dreamed of creating a business centered around fashion. Aside from her successful writing career and her top-rated podcast, Style Your Mind, Cara often found herself playing in her late grandmother's jewelry box, adorning herself with sparkling brooches, glitzy clip-on earrings, and glossy, gold statement necklaces from yesteryear. It was only a matter of time before she found a way to share her obsession with women around the world.

Dagmar Rose, named after Cara's grandmother who inspired her passion for vintage baubles, gives women more than a piece of shimmering jewelry or a gorgeous top - it inspires them to step into their most glamorous selves, to embrace their femininity, and to embody a part of themselves they maybe didn't know existed.

Through her studies at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, and her passion for the vintage industry, Cara has curated a collection of unique vintage costume jewelry and clothing from iconic designers like Christian Dior, Chanel, Kenneth Jay Lane, Oscar De La Renta, Trifari, Monet, and many more. Her focus is on collecting bold, stand-out pieces in excellent condition that give women a chance to experience a piece of history. She is fascinated with the idea of the women who once owned these items and believes each piece has a rich story to tell.

In addition to being ultra fabulous, Dagmar Rose is all about sustainable glamour. By giving these items a second, third, or even fourth life, we're taking care of the environment by keeping them out of landfills. And caring about the planet never goes out of style.

Dagmar Rose is for the woman who wears faux fur and red lips to the supermarket, who loves to spice up a mundane Tuesday afternoon by popping a bottle of champagne, and who embraces all things elegant and ladylike, but equally embraces her wild side.
