Gu Dong Yi (that’s vintage in Chinese)

I can’t begin to tell you how much fun it is to style with vintage clothes. It’s like discovering gravity! All of a sudden everything makes sense. You don’t have to worry about designer credits, or trends, or concepts, it’s just all there. Whatever you do, however you put things together, it all has this happy, sweet, colorful, delightful ending.

Or was it Xiao Wen who brought all the magic? Remember her SS12 Marc Jacobs campaign? I could eat her, she’s so freaking adorable! (Thanks Mina @IMGmodels!)

But the best thing is… wait for it… you can buy all the pieces I used! They’re for sale on the Manhattan Vintage Show shopping site! Check it out and tell me you‘re not just as excited as I am you’ll look like a Chinese supermodel!
