We spotted this pretty young thang at the recent CB2 opening on Lincoln Road. We loves her Victoria Beckham-esque ‘do and the way she manages to masterfully mix old with new.
Name: Ginger Harris
Profession: Journalist and creator of GgGetups.com
Ethical background: “White bread,” Harris says.
Spotted at: Lincoln Road
The outfit: Vintage ’70s crocheted vest, LA Made organic tunic, Romeo & Juliet Couture denim leggings, vintage ’70s Italian boots, vintage belt, Forever 21 gold hoops and Louis Vuitton Speedy.
Personal style mantra: “I like mixing trends with pieces from the past. I try to anchor every outfit with a piece of vintage for uniqueness. The ’50s and ’70s, to me, are timeless decades chocked full of femininity,” Harris says.
Go-to department stores and boutiques: She says, “It’s a toss-up between Fly Boutique, Jezebel, Forever 21 for inexpensive and Betsey Johnson for a never-fail dress. I’m also big on local designers like Tricia Fix, Lorie Lester and Teresa Mezzina.”
Current fashion obsession: “I’m absolutely in love with the over-the-top ruffles in Marc Jacob’s spring line,” Harris adds. Closet staples: “When all else fails, I pull out one of my maxi dress from the ’70s. You can dress them up or down to fit whatever situation,” she says.
Worst trend ever tried: “There was a portion of my fashion life when my midriff was always bare,” Harris says.
Biggest crime against fashion: “Other than white shoes, piling on trends is always a no-no. The best way to work trends is to incorporate one at a time into your own personal style, “ she advises.
Style muses: Marilyn Monroe, Dita Von Teese, Rachel Bilson and Victoria Beckham.
