Boho Bunnie: You have a knack for picking up awesome vintage threads. Where are your favorite places to shop?
Miche: I love rummaging through the racks at vintage shops but actually some of my best finds have been from regular thrift shops like Goodwill. Online shops through artsy and ASOS fashion finder can also be really good for finding affordable vintage pieces.
Boho Bunnie: What are your favorite vintage pieces to find?
Miche: Dresses. I adore dresses, not just because they’re feminine and comfortable, but because they have endless possibilities when it comes to remixing and styling them. Want to wear it as a top? Put a skirt over the bottom part. As a skirt? Throw an oversized top over it for an edgy look.
