A few years ago I came out with my Vintage 101 series. I wanted to explain how I created a vintage wardrobe and how you can do it as well. In the past few years I have moved away from specifically vintage clothing into a more ‘classic’ silhouette, so the last two articles are about the difference between a vintage and classic look and then the definition of more classic styles. I have now added a few new definitions to my classic styles which is something I am sharing in the new book I am writing! There will even be a quiz so you can figure out which category you fit into. In the meanwhile, feel free to peruse my vintage wardrobe advice because I think a lot of it can be inspiring for any woman who wants to look and feel beautiful in their day to day lives.
