We love the way you’re able to make vintage pieces look fresh. How can our users incorporate vintage into their wardrobe? I think it’s very easy to incorporate vintage! Once you realize how much money you’ll save while thrifting, you’ll find a vintage to make it work in your wardrobe – believe me. To make sure that I don’t look like a Sear’s advertisement from 1965, I like to either (A) incorporate vintage pieces from different decades or (B) mix several modern pieces in.
What piece of clothing do you wear the most and why? Probably a pair of simple wedge booties from Anthropologie that I purchased two years ago. They’re incredibly well made and they go with just about everything.
What’s your favorite fall/winter trend? I’m still loving the whole cape-trend. I’ve actually been collecting vintage capes for 4 years now! My favorite one, however, is a cape that my mom made from a vintage pattern. It’s a lightweight wool and perfect for laying.
Blazers and boots are wardrobe staples – how do you wear these two basics and still keep them fresh and up-to-date? I wear my vintage burgundy leather blazer with just about everything. It’s very fitted and is a little more funky than just basic black or beige. I have some pretty crazy boots that stand up on their own, but I like to freshen up my more reserved boots with a pair of bright tights.
If you could buy only one item for your wardrobe this season, what would it be? A super comfy, thick cable-knit sweater.
In the winter, how do you stay warm while still looking fashionable? Get a jacket that you really love (you’ll be wearing it non stop!) and invest in some toasty tights – I’ve always liked the sweater ones!
