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.

The iconic New Wave wardrobe of Aimee Mann is a vintage fashion score

80′s New Wave cool is decidedly timeless in its avante-garde fashion way. I’ll try not to count how many times that I got dressed to go out to a club with MTV playing in the background.original But I will tell you that one of my favorite 80′s groups was ‘Til Tuesday.What I really loved was how real and downtown the the lead singer Aimee Mann looked in in the videos in comparison to some other pop stars at the time who looked like they were styled and ready to go to spring break in Daytona. As a just-hatched stylist and seasoned downtown club goer during the New Wave era, I was always amazed at how what we wore, what we saw never really translated to video, short of Madonna.But Aimee Mann got it.She had the look and the beat. Aimee had that Japanese cool, the counter-culture edge that redefined what chic was all about by way of designers like Yohji Yamamoto, Comme Des Garcons, Jean Paul Gaultier, Katherine Hamnett, and the like that made Charivari the boutique that it was.

How to wear a vintage jacket

Styling tips to make a 7-year old YSL Leather Jacket look modernI have an authentic vintage Yves Saint Laurent black leather jacket that I purchased around 2002 when I worked for the company. The blazer style leather jacket with shoulder pads was very expensive at the time and cost ?2k (over $3,100). Luckily, I was able to use my employee discount. Unfortunately, I have not worn it much since. With the return of the big shoulders this season, I think that I could I get away with wearing it… what do you think? What would you recommend wearing it with? Should I wear jeans and heels or a dress. I wear a lot of dresses so what style would you suggest. What style of jeans or trousers would be best? And what kind of heels? How about stilettos as I have some lovely YSL stilettos that are also gathering dust.For some descriptive info about me- I am 5’5″ tall, a size 8, age 38 with pale blonde kind of grey hair.Sorry for all the questions but my YSL jacket is hand-stitched Italian leather so I do not want to let it down by wearing it with the wrong thing!
