ANM Video: How to Shop What You’ve Already Got post image

The whole ‘closet full of clothes and nothing to wear’ dilemma is one I’m intimately familiar with. As of late, my solution has been to go out and buy more clothes to fill the supposed void. However, that doesn’t solve anything and day after day I find myself staring into the depths of my overstuffed closet and bemoaning my lack of choices. Another problem I have is that I have some seriously stellar vintage pieces that I couldn’t pass up even though I have no freakin’ clue how to wear them.

To solve wardrobe issues,  I solicited the help of my good friend and go-t0 vintage guru, Sammy Davis. Sammy’s sense of style and ability to take the most retro pieces and make them modern and impossibly hip is a skill seldom seen- this girl is without a doubt the most stylish person I know. In the video above, Sammy and I go rifling through my closet to find new ways to wear some tricky pieces.

For more of Sammy’s amazing style advice and inspirational words of wisdom, visit her website- sammydvintage.com and check out her YouTube Channel.

Look We Love: Schoolgirl-Chic


School is back in session. Whether you’ve been hitting the books this fall or not, you can still incorporate a little schoolgirl chic into your look. Classic schoolgirl staples (pleated skirts, button down cardigans, knee-socks, blazers, etc) make excellent additions to any fall wardrobe and add a bit of sophistication with a playful spirit, depending on how you style the look (you definitely do NOT want to look like you’re channeling Britney Spears circa …Baby One More Time).

If you’re dubious about the concept of borrowing from the schoolgirls, just look at Alexander Wang’s Fall 2010 collection which demonstrated that smart staples like pinstriped separates, thigh-highs and backpacks can be sexy, avant-garde and grown-up.  And then there’s fashion muse extraordinary Alexa Chung who is renowned for her preppy style that blends school-girl sweetness with and edgy street-chic sensibility.

Yes, school-girl staples can be both sophisticated, sexy and sharp, so why not invest in a few this fall?

Read on for my favorite schoolgirl finds. [Click here to keep reading…]
