I think that true style lies in the ability to mix vintage, couture, and thrift into the perfect combination; remember it is not what you wear but how you wear it. I love to throw on a couture dress ( My faves: Zac Posen, Chloe, Galliano) with a pair of worn out boots because it tones down the look and you can get away with wearing it anywhere.

Jeffrey Campbell Northern Lights boots I think I have already worn my pair out!
My favorite places to shop for vintage online include:
Decades This is my favorite place to go whenever I am in LA!
Lulu's at the Belle Kay I discovered this gem years ago in Chicago and it's a must if you are near the city!
