Karen Blanchard and WHEREDIDUGETTHAT.com

We recently partnered with NYC based blogger Karen Blanchard  on a project for the launch of our new vintage collection. Blanchard, the voice behind, wheredidyougetthat.com, is known as a styling guru, especially when it comes to pairing vintage clothing finds, americana inspired accessories, and amazing shoes with mixed pieces from her current wardrobe. We sent Karen some key pieces from our vintage shoe vault—and she styled them up—giving you summer looks, straight from the new SOLESTRUCK VINTAGE COLLECTION. Check out the below images—with a quick Q & A with Karen about her favorite finds, spots and looks! Thanks Karen!

1. FAVORITE ALL TIME VINTAGE FIND!
Oh God that’s hard to answer. A heavily beaded long sleeved salmon pink dress. I posted once in the first year of my blog. It’s uh-maaaaazing.
2. FAVORITE VINTAGE HOT SPOT IN NYC?
There’s a few but I love the Brooklyn flea market.
3. FAVORITE VINTAGE STOP IN LONDON?
Spitalsfield Market on a Sunday morning. They have some of the best vintage places.
4. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE IN FIVE WORDS?
Relaxed, vintage, downtown, rock, boho.
5. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE DECADE FOR PERSONAL STYLE AND TREND?
70s – handsdown. The flares, the high waists, the colours, the crochet. Need I go on??

Sitting pretty. Blachard pairs sparkle, glitz and short shorts with flat vintage boots from the vault. Braided detail at ankle, and classic late 80′s styling give this boot the perfect look for seasonless style. Find this boot under item no. 155 Brown Leather Below Knee Boot.

City Stomper! Karen pairs a classic black leather slouch boot with knotted pink lace dress for a little naughty vs nice combo. Shop this boot under item no. 209 Black Short Boot With Pointed Toe.

Endless Summer ’11. Equal parts Malibu surf chic meets music festival go to look, this ensemble from Blanchard has us ready for the heat! Taking a classic roman inspired  gladiator from the Solestruck vintage archive, Karen plays up the 70′s vibe with vintage accessories and the perfect bag! Shop this sandal under no. 251 Brown Leather Sandal With Buckle in our vintage vault.

Oh Man.  Classic menswear gets a sexxy twist, as Karen Blanchard updates this menswear lace-up with a hyper-femme dress and menswear inspired accessories. Shop this shoe under no. 35 Salvatore Ferragamo Spectator Oxford.

Even cowgirls get the shoes. This mint condition cowgirl boot is given a boho spin with a short lace dress worn by Blanchard. Shop this boot under item no. 319 Leaf Adorned Red Cowboy Boot.

Special thanks to KAREN Blanchard.
