We had the pleasure of attending Etsy Studios almost a month ago as part of the NYC Vintage Sellers Team.  Hosted by Sammy Davis of SammyDVintage.com and Simone of Erstwhile Style, Le Double Ve was the proud receivers of Sammy’s ‘SEO Smackdown for Etsy Sellers’ makeover!  We learned an incredible amount of information on how we can improve our shop!

Vintage Views-Aubrey Howard

We’re starting a new series here on our blog where we interview some of our favorite vintage wear-ers and have them style their style from the Le Double Ve closet!  Our first guest is Aubrey Howard.  Originally hailing from New Orleans, LA, she has travelled the world taking street style photography, trend forecasting, and lifestyle profile blogging.

Blue Dress w/ YSL Buttons soon to be available from Le Double Ve, H&M Belt, Vintage Kodak Sunglasses, Micheal Kors Watch, Vintage Earrings

Le Double Ve: Why do you wear vintage?

Aubrey H: Because the pieces are one of a kind. I have a big thing about going out places and seeing people have the same thing on that I do. It makes me feel like I should have a xerox stamp on my forehead!  I also love how it feels when you zip up this one of a kind find and it fits perfect.  You always wonder what kind of life the person had that wore the piece before. Ill put on these amazing body-cons from the 80’s and they just FIT in all the right places and I’m like “I know this girl had fun going out when she had this on!”

LDV: There is something about when a vintage pieces fits so right its like fate handed you an amazing article of clothing and its been waiting for you!  What’s your favorite period?

AH: I’d have to say its a tie between the 1950’s and the 1980’s.  I love the body-con style and colors of the 80’s but there is something about that classic 50’s silhouette.  I think it because it just makes your waist look so good and tiny!

Necklace available at Le Double Ve (click image!), Vintage Glasses, VIntage Dress from Time Warp Vintage, Vintage Earrings, Wooden Cuff

LDV: Who are your vintage icons?

AH: YSL, Vintage Chanel is always amazing.  I’d have to also say Pierre Cardin. I have these crazy batik printed high waisted pants with a matching top.  I never wear it together because its crazy.  It’s pants for business, and I wear the top with some short shorts.

Pink Blazer soon to be available from Le Double Ve, BDG Skinny Pink Jeans, Nude Pumps, United Colors of Bennetton Tank, Vintage Chanel Sunglasses, Micheal Kors Watch

LDV: What designers do you think are doing a good job of keeping the best vintage trends alive today?

AH: Chanel, their couture for Fall/Winter 2012. It was straight out of the 40s with some volume to modernize it.  I think Hermes’ is doing a great job with it with their boxy coats.  Lanvin couple of seasons ago had a big 40s feel too.  Love the 40s that are coming out.  Designers are making me proud.

LDV: What is your ideal vintage outfit?

AH: Anything classic, off the shoulder, fitted.  Give me a fish-tail anyday.  I also love anything blousy from the 70’s.  Anything overflowing with beads and sequins.  Everything crazy.
