Vintage Meets Rock and Roll

Kate Ciepluch

Today I got to check out one bad ass collection at Nine West for their Vintage American Collection inspired by what makes me tick: vintage! 
I met up with the creator of the line, style editor Kate Ciepluch to talk about her road trip which influenced the collection (watch the video!).  We also talked about flea markets, vintage and thrift and knowing that the best pieces are found when you travel.  Which they really are. She walked me through the pieces from the line and I brought in some of my favourite vintage pieces for style ideas (like the leather suede shawl shown above). 
ps.  I left with those suede and leather heels from her line.   Get them here.  
pps.  Tomorrow I’ll be with Kate at the opening of the first Nine West Vintage American Collection Store in Soho (577 Broadway). 6pm till 11pm.  Hope to see some of you swing by and say hi and check out the line.  The black shoes are an indication of what’s there!

    I love those peep toe suede booties. Glad you left with them! Great peplum top-love it!

    Different shoes. I love shoes myself and I usually gasp uncontrollably whenever I see a gorgeous pair of heels and I did with these!
    Wish I lived in Soho, I’d have loved to have popped in to view the collection

    Always love some great shoes. Shoes are one area of vintage I have a problem with because I have big feet– I’m not one of those lucky little size 7s! Also love how you brought in your shawl… Gotta love those fav pieces 🙂

      I’m a fellow big feet person so know what you mean. It’s pure luck finding shoes. I check vintage mens alot : )

    I’ve just come across your blog, and it’s so influential! Love your posts and especially this one. The shoes are beautiful! But I was wondering whether there is anyway of finding out where her jeans are from?!! They’re gorgeous!
    Thank you, X
