I came across a lovely article in the New York Times about Christene Barberich, the founder and creative director of Refinery 29, the fashion website. I was immediately smitten by her vintage sensibility; She rarely wears jeans ( she only owns two pairs, including a vintage pair from France) and given that I am feeling a bit "jeaned-out" at the moment, I admire her sense of refinement and style. Having also recently cleaned out my closets because of a move, I must admit to being a bit tired of all the "fast fashion" items I've picked up in the recent past. Perhaps I am moving to a more selective, restrained and quality conscious shopping mindset? I must be getting older and wiser...!
