In between popping in and out of a couple of our favorite vintage stores we got to talking…below, an unfolding of our quick but rich conversation on her travel must-haves, the art that's deeply inspiring her right now, and why she seeks out things that get better with age.
Can you share advice/top few tips for buying vintage pieces you love?
I think the ethos of vintage is the idea that you are never done decorating and having an appreciation of the craftsmanship and design from another era. My friends that have the best vintage are just constantly on the hunt: they pop into thrift stores once a week and never pass by a garage sale. The hunt is part of the fun. Part of the appeal is that you can find cool things for not a lot of money (but if you find something that is speaking to you and it’s on the pricier side, I say go for it! These are the things you end up loving and keeping.)
Here are some of my favorite vintage home dealers for getting inspiration:

What pieces in your wardrobe do you wear and feel most like “yourself”?
I have a big love for strappy sundresses because if I’m wearing one if it means the weather is warm and I’m probably doing something I love: hanging out on a beach or heading out on an evening walk in the city.
In general I try to only wear natural fibers…no synthetics! I’ve been making an effort to do that the last few years and now I can’t stand the feeling of polyester. It also feels good knowing the clothes I wear can break down naturally.
