I was drawn to St. Augustine on a few tweets from Philosophie Salon and College Fashionista style guru Ali Kasper. With promises of independent designers and adorable shops, I pulled up to a beach/college town, whose pedestrian streets look right out of Disney, and that also happens to be the oldest city in the United States. Ali showed us the fashionable ropes, and we ended up at The Closet, a trove of handmade designs and vintage finds. Come inside the fitting room with us and see what we found. Next Stop Shop on INDIExUS: The Closet [St. Augustine, FL]

The look started with the bandeau, handmade locally of vintage materials by Honeywell ($20), and met its match with another locally upcycled Buddha skirt by Regalia ($28).
The earrings are made of cardboard! But you’d never tell by looking at them, by 8 Trax & Beta Max ($10)
The round necklace by Luella Bird ($12) is made from vintage ties.
With the rest and assortment of vintage pieces (including the hat from North Carolina, and the belt that I bought then and there and am wearing now), this look was complete.

I impart my daily love of light layering, thick-as-thieves platforms and undiscovered fashionable gems. I love to turn a phrase, and in truth I'm a designer at werq.
