There's so many great designers. I'm a little bit of a vintage junkie when it comes to going out. I like to get unique pieces that you won't see everyone wearing, but at the same time I don't like to break the bank. I like to find great vintage pieces that you can hold on to for a long time.
O what is life, if we must hold it thus as wind-blown sparks hold momentary fire?

Thomas Edward Brown
