My vintage affair started when I realized mass produced products don’t appeal to me as much as something old, only one of a kind, and with a sense of history hidden inside…Something I can actually afford, revamp, and make it personal. My wardrobe doesn’t have to cost a fortune, but it has to represent ME. For example, this old suitcase, when I found it at Pepe’s Thrift Store on Sunset Boulevard, it was abandoned and filled with black and white photographs. Nonetheless, I love it even if nobody else does.
