Bloggers-rockn-vintageI have the pleasure of starting off Lily Kai Vintage first series; Bloggers Rock’n Vintage with the amazing Kéla Walker of Kéla’s Kloset. I started following Kéla’s blog a little over a year and a half ago and fell in love instantly. While in NYC last year for Fashion Week we meet and I thought to myself she is the real deal! Find out more about Kéla and her love of vintage.

I Rock Vintage because 

The quality and craftsmanship  of garments from decades past is so much better than what’s available now.  Plus I know I’ll have something unique and wont have to worry about every Jane,  Jenny and Julie having it. There’s no “B*tch Stole My look” with vintage.
What is your all time favorite vintage find too date?
Oooh, man there are so many but I would have to say it was  a score from the Goodwill.  I have this ridiculous obsession with Diane Von Furstenberg and her wrap dresses.  On an impromptu trip to the GW upstate, NY ( all the best deals are in the suburbs) I scored not 1, not 2 but 3 vintage DvF dresses for 22 bucks.  You should have seen my face when I spotted them and how fast I scooped them off the rack. They are from the early years of the line and feature her signature print.   I still can’t believe I found those dresses or that someone actually got rid of them in the first place.   Who would do such a thing?
Who would say you’re vintage style icon is? 
Tracey Ellis Ross ~ Her style evokes the perfect blend of vintage, chic , modern femininity. I’m sure her mother, Diana Ross’ wardrobe has a lot to do with it considering she’s admitting to shopping her mother’s kloset.  At any rate I love it.  Even when she’s not wearing something old, her modern style still evokes that vintage charm.
As spring approaches what trend would you love to see from the past?
I would love to see the return of the ladylike style of the 50′s and 60′s -flare skirts, tailored wiggle dresses and pill box hats, opera gloves. How great would it be to see more women wearing those styles? Okay, maybe not the hats but  I love all of that posh femininity from the past.
