Bloggers Rock'n Vintage with Leslie Young March 29 2013, 0 Comments
I Rock Vintage because….I Rock Vintage because I love the thrill of replicating a high fashion look with pieces I find at vintage boutiques; not to mention the prices point is a fraction of the price I’d pay in a high end designer boutique. I’ve got a family to feed and closet to fill for goodness sakes so I have to be strategic! LOL
What is your all time favorite vintage find too date...There are so many pieces that I’ve fallen in love with over time, but I’d have to say my absolute favorites are a brand new pair of classic Timberland Boots for $8 and a pair of Ray Ban Wayfarers in mint condition for $1. True treasures.
Who would say you're vintage style icon is...When it comes to who my vintage style icon is, I’d have to say it depends on the day of the week. Some days I tend toward the classic looks of Audrey Hepburn with cigarette pants and cashmere sweaters. On other days I lean toward the not-so-vintage-but-vintage-in-my-book style of Denise Huxtable (Lisa Bonet). I love her nonchalantly chic style expression.
As spring approaches what trend would you love to see from the past..I have a feeling that Birenstocks with socks are coming back call me crazy but I feel it in my bones. Will I be rocking it? Not so sure...call me when L.A.Gears come back.
Leslie is wearing a printed Leslie Fey secretary blouse with denim jeans and super cute wedges. She is chill and ready for what the day has in store for her.

I Rock Vintage because…it’s the most effective way to find a one of a kind piece that stands out from the crowd.
What is your all time favorite vintage find too date… My favorite vintage find to date is the starburst brooch that I’m wearing in this outfit. It’s such a versatile piece. I’ve worn it with everything from evening gowns to jeans and a tee. It’s really one of those pieces that I can’t go too long without wearing.
Who would say you’re vintage style icon is… My vintage style icon would be my mom. The older I get, the more I appreciate her brave style choices. I’m constantly flipping through old photos of her and figuring out ways to recreate her amazing looks. Plus, she still has tons of vintage jewelry and clothes that I sneak out with when I visit.
As spring approaches what trend would you love to see from the past… I’ve recently been obsessed with flared jeans. So, a comeback of extreme bell bottoms would be fine by me. They make your legs and booty look amazing!
Bloggers Rock'n Vintage: Allison Prenger of The Style Pundit March 15 2013, 0 Comments
I Rock Vintage because...while it is great to wear on trend pieces, so much of today's trends are taken from previous times. Not only do I rock vintage because it has a "throwback" vibe, but I believe vintage is a way to add character and worldliness to a look.
As spring approaches what trend would you love to see from the past... rose colored lenses. I swear that is the only pair of sunglasses that I have been wearing. It looks so fresh and fun, and are great for rainy days, when you need to still wear sunglasses to complete an outfit.
Allison is wearing a 1928 Co. Victorian Rose Gold Locket with a Parker Dress and vintage reversible fur vest...I know amazing right!

Bloggers Rock'n Vintage: Kéla Walker of Kéla's Kloset March 08 2013, 0 Comments
I have the pleasure of starting off Lily Kai Vintage first series; Bloggers Rock'n Vintage with the amazing Kéla Walker of Kéla's Kloset. I started following Kéla's blog a little over a year and a half ago and fell in love instantly. While in NYC last year for Fashion Week we meet and I thought to myself she is the real deal! Find out more about Kéla and her love of vintage.
Oooh, man there are so many but I would have to say it was a score from the Goodwill. I have this ridiculous obsession with Diane Von Furstenberg and her wrap dresses. On an impromptu trip to the GW upstate, NY ( all the best deals are in the suburbs) I scored not 1, not 2 but 3 vintage DvF dresses for 22 bucks. You should have seen my face when I spotted them and how fast I scooped them off the rack. They are from the early years of the line and feature her signature print. I still can't believe I found those dresses or that someone actually got rid of them in the first place. Who would do such a thing

LKV in Action: Party Crashing in Style January 10 2013, 0 Comments
It's always a pleasure to see customers wearing pieces from Lily Kai Vintage and last night was no different. While thumbing through Instagram I spotted by BFF in a Carolyne Barton Night Sequin Blouse she purchased from LKV earlier this year. The best part? She was crashing a Microsoft Holiday party. Typically when you think of a party crasher they are attempting to stay under the radar BUT not T. Mills. I can tell she was working the room and staying under the radar is not her style!
