Here’s just a few ways to work some of the trends found in the recent edition of LOOK magazine but using Vintage pieces rather than High Street.
Now I’m a huge fan of the High Street dont get me wrong but adding a Vintage piece to your outfit can add not only a bit of history to it,but a bit of luxury and craftsmanship that you might not find in a High Street alternative.
