We’ve been devout fans of Texan blogger Vintage Virgin and her impressive knack for giving a fresh spin to retro styles for quite some time now, so we had to get the scoop on what inspires the girl behind the vintage sunnies:

First fashion memory: I went to a David Bowie and Billy Idol concert with my uncle when I was 8 and dressed up like the love child of Diana Ross and Punky Brewster. I got so many comments that night that I didn’t want it to end. After that, I was hooked!

Your three wardrobe essentials: A shitload of jewelry, a statement bag and vintage everything!

Favorite fashion decade: This is a hard one because I love them all but if I had a gun to my head, I would pick the ’60s, man!

Style muses: Twiggy and Peggy Moffitt.

What are you most excited about wearing right now? Crochet, crochet and more crochet!

One thing you couldn’t live without: My son, Ephraim. I was a wild child growing up and when he came along, I was able to calm down and focus on my potential. I honestly would be nothing without him!

Speaking of, how did you start blogging? I would search high and low for a blog with versatile style and clothes I could afford. Once I couldn’t find it, I decided to start my own! I just wanted people to know you don’t need to spend a fortune to look this good and everything’s better in vintage!

Your fave NG pieces at the moment: The Lace Bell Bottom Pant, because I love a good bell bottom, especially in lace! The Crissy Cross Romper, because I’m a romper whore and the one-shoulder and print takes the cake. The Copen Platform, because you get a lot of height and a little vintage all in one. Last but not least, the Sienna Scalloped Crochet Tunic. Since my latest obsession is crochet, this is a must-have in my wardrobe to pair with my cutoffs. The slouch, the fit, the semi-circle scallop bottom…LOVE!
