About the Modern Day Style Icon designer: ”I simply love to dress up in 1940’s and 1950’s clothing and lingerie, whether it’s genuine vintage or simply inspired from that era. I have been collecting clothes and accessories for as long as I can recall and I can even remember going to the thrift store with my mom when I was a little girl and sifting through everything to find amazing glamorous cat eye glasses & 1950s prom dresses! “

About Thrift-ing: Ever since I was a little girl my Grandmother and I have been hitting the thrift stores. Even when I travel home to Texas now we go to 1/2 price Wednesday at the Goodwill and I always find treasures for just a few bucks. Going to thrift stores for me is one of the most fun ways to be creative with fashion. How can I wear it? How can I alter it? How can I make this skirt for $3 look like a million?…

About Bon Ton Vintage: In may be out in the middle of the country but this is one of my favorite places in the world. Not only is the selection of vintage clothing to die for and the prices fair (especially when you tried vintage clothing shopping in NYC and your wallet goes screaming for the door) but the owners are two of the most interesting characters you’ll ever meet. I never miss a trip out here when I’m home and you can see a photo story I shot on the store HERE so I can pretend I’m there in photographs.
