It's not unusual that in tough times, people gravitate towards simpler and comforting things--things that remind them of the past. While retro and vintage fashion have been in vogue, in certain circles, for over the last 20 years or so, it seems that now, women from most every generation are embracing elements of the past and incorporating them into their own personal fashion statements.
Depending on where you live, going vintage can often be a pricey prospect,and you never really know what you're getting. Now, there is a new fashion maven in "town," so to speak, who can help you sort it all out and get your retro on. Jill Winburn, proprietor of the Albuquerque-based Jilli Kae the Chic Boutique, knows her style, and offers fabulous retro and vintage-inspired apparel, handbags, shoes and accessories in her Historic Old Town store or online at www.jillikae.com.
Since the holidays are quickly approaching, Jilli Kae recommends some wonderful, quality affordable gift items that are sure to turn heads and have everyone saying "Oh my goodness, where'd you get that?" Be sure to tell them you got it at Jilli Kae the Chic Boutique!
