VI: The sexy minimalist. I love pairing vintage lingerie with modern pieces.
CH: Casual and a little edgy.
VI: Makeup. I love hitting up Sephora and checking out the newest skincare and beauty items.
CH: A really great hat. I can almost always be seen wearing a hat.
VI: Gwen Stefani and Olivia Munn. Olivia wears a lot of vintage and pairs her pieces with more contemporary ones. Gwen is a fashion icon for a reason—she’s iconic.
CH: Tasya Van Ree and Pharrell Williams. They’re both so effortless and like to push boundaries.
Must-have vintage staples:
VI: A silk robe or peignoir tops. It’s fun to wear bedroom pieces out.
CH: A great leather jacket and denim jacket. Everyone needs those two items.
Spring trends they're loving:
VI: Florals—I love anything in a floral print. It’s so feminine.
CH: Layering sheer tops and bottoms over T-shirts, button-ups, slips and pants.
Sentimental items in their closets:
VI: My mom’s prom dress. It’s a peach chiffon gown with a dramatic beaded collar.
CH: A 1980s gold Guess watch. It was my mom’s, and she recently gave it to me. I wear it everyday.
Summer trends they're looking forward to:
VI: Neons. I love to pair a neon green beanie with an unexpected feminine vintage dress and booties.
CH: Neon. I love being able to wear a lot of color.
Go-to casual outfit:
VI: Casual? Me? I’m always wearing heels and some vintage drama.
CH: Denim, a vintage T-shirt and one of my stetsons.
Go-to outfit for a night out:
VI: I love wearing a vintage corset over a vintage tee. Throw on some denim and you’re done.
CH: I tend to lean towards a more masculine look when I’m going out, so a cool silk tuxedo pant with a unique printed button up. I like to give Mick Jagger vibes.
On their wishlists:
VI: I have an angora obsession, so any cute angora sweater.
CH: I’m always hunting for more hats and all the B Sides denim I can get my hands on.
