"Buying vintage can be risky, but super rewarding when you get a great piece."
iane Marshall-Green, or Di to those who know her, is what we call a triple threat. The artist, actress, and producer is also a bonafide fashionista with a flair for seamlessly mixing vintage and designer pieces. As an actress, Di can be seen next in a yet-to-be announced independent film opposite Ethan Hawke. She’s also working on a television project with Karyn Kusama that’s based on Mary Gaitskill’s novel, Bad Behavior. And then there’s her art: one look at @dgmart and it’s evident how beauty and color play a significant role in her life.
This multitasking mother-of-two gives us the goods on how to shop vintage like a pro in our latest #LePrixProfile.

Fave item you’ve ever owned:
An original Purple Rain Prince tour t-shirt from the eighties. It’s light purple and has the dark and light doves on it. The woman I bought it from sent me a note asking me to love it and take good care of it, as it was the first piece of concert memorabilia she ever bought, and it was her first concert.
I actually have a pretty well curated Etsy and Instagram habit. I have relationships with sellers whose taste I adore. I have a girl in Barcelona who is amazing and some women in Paris, too. They will email me items they think I’ll like. I’m good with my measurements—you have to have a good sewing measuring tape—to know how things will fit. And then if I love it, I take the plunge. Buying vintage can be risky—no returns—but super rewarding when you get a great piece.
