Something vintage… something new! Of Wit & Will Publisher and vintage collector Suzy Kellems Dominik packed her bags to meet contest winner, Beth Parker, for a fun-filled vintage fashion consultation in Lexington, Kentucky.
For our Shop Your Closet contest, Beth of Seersucker & Saddles recreated a Burberry Men’s Fall 2013 look and won with the most votes. She mentioned, “There weren’t any rules stating I couldn’t go coed, so I thought why not add a little femininity to an otherwise masculine look?” She pulled together her Burberry look with H&M, J.Crew, Cartier, Zara and Kate Spade.
Beth loves all things preppy and nautical, and Suzy’s eye for vintage opened Beth’s fashion world to a new (and old) outlook. “What can make something more original is to find a treasure in a vintage store, and all of the sudden you’re utterly transformed,” Suzy told Beth. “It’s about creating a collection than following the trend.”
If you’re doing a vintage skirt as opposed to a dress, you don’t want to do the total look vintage. Mixing vintage with modern is a timeless technique that will never go out of style!
