Vintage Chic Street Style- Make It Personal

You don’t need an oversized budget to have style, just some imagination.I spotted Jocelyn Spaar when she was on the job as a restaurant host and thought she looked so absolutely adorable that I had to share her style with you.mediumSo many women– particularly ones in their twenties– get caught up in a trend-by-numbers way of dressing. They have to have every conceivable trendy style because a celebrity wore it or all their friends have it and in the process they end up looking exactly the same… boring.Here, we have someone who totally thinks out of the fashion box when it comes to her personal style. A little vintage, a little hand-me-down, some new things that are all put together in a very individual way– that is EXACTLY what having style is all about!

There are celebrities and Housewives left and right out here this weekend, and I have the dish!he Fourth of July cover of “Social Life” magazine is a big deal out here. Smart of them to choose the super-gorgeous, Kelly Killoren Bensimon of “The Real Housewives of New York” as this week’s cover girl. The inside of the magazine isn’t too bad either as there happens to be a fabulous picture of me at the art opening of “Social Life” creator and man about the Hamptons, Justin Mitchell.
