Our Story.

Hello, and thank you for stopping by Drew&Olive Petites. We are a vintage shop co-owned by twin sisters: one is a self-described girly-girl who tends to favor soft & romantic, classic & timeless items while her other half is drawn to structured pieces that are slightly more daring & edgy. We live in two cities on the East Coast and each vow to never be apart from one another for longer than 13 days.

Drew + Olive are ladies of style, grace, and substance. The two are two peas in a pod, so to speak. Refined Olive is interested in a piece for its aesthetic value while the more inquisitive Drew wants to know it story; it's provenance and history.

How did we come up with the name, you ask? D+O is named after our father's father , Andrew, & our mother's mother, Olive. The idea to open the store sprung from our passion for gorgeous, old, refined textiles & creations & from a strong belief that reusing clothing & recycling materials is one of the only ways to be truly eco-friendly.

Each vintage piece in our collections has been personally selected by us with a special attention to natural textiles, unique fabric, & tailored clothing.

We follow the advice of one of our favorite early twentieth century designers, Paul Poiret. In speaking of artistic dress for women, Mr. Poiret is credited with saying: "Choose whatever is most becoming to your beauty; tightly-fitting garments or loose-flowing ones, the strictly tailored or the more elaborate. Choose colours that go with your complexion, your hair, your eyes. If dresses built on straight lines do not suit you, do not wear them. Those who are really well dressed enjoy a sense of satisfaction equal to the triumphs of any other art; and they impart beauty and colour to things around them."

All the best,
-Drew + Olive
