Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been working hard to put the finishing touches on
my holiday illustrations and new products. (To be revealed VERY SOON!) While
searching for inspiration, motivation and distractions I often end up reading up
on fashion and design blogs. So, today I thought I’d share one of my very
favorites with you: My Vintage Secret.com
My Vintage Secret... a great source of fashion inspiration
Anyone who has done any vintage shopping will know that the process
can be fantastic or just plain frustrating. When you are able to find one
of those unique one-of-a-kind treasures it all feels worthwhile. But the
process of weeding through the mix of un-merchandized stock can
deter even the most diligent shoppers.
Vintage shopping can feel a bit like this
The key to making vintage shopping fun is knowing where to begin.
That’s where my latest blog crush comes in. Kaitlin Simonsen of
My Vintage Secret launched her blog just a couple of months ago,
but already she’s revealed some of the best tricks and tips that
make vintage shopping a real pleasure.

Her blog features styling ideas and store reviews. One of my favorite features is
“Thrift it”, where she takes the “must haves” from top fashion magazines and
compiles a thrifted version for her readers. And the best part is… everything
is for sale! My Vintage Secret even features a size chart, that helps to make
sense of those tough-to-fit retro shapes.
The hottest trends, thrifted for under $75!
