Sarah - Alameda Flea Market, Alameda

"I think I try to do a combo of old and new. So this is sort of what this is. Just like old thrift store finds with newer trends and tailoring. That's what I like about this jacket."

Sarah has impeccable style, combining vintage and modern clothes for classic, but definitely not boring outfits. How does she do this? Fit and proportions mostly. For example, the coat in beige/camel still has a classic feel to it, but it's almost a mini trench. And without the belt, it looks somewhere between a blazer and a car coat. Even more impressive, Sarah is wearing four layers, but there is no hint of bulge in her silhouette.
