Renee Lilley, Uniquely Vintage

Renee Lilley, a hotstuff model/fashion lover in LA, gets her clothes from thrift stores, free boxes, friends, and indie shops. Some excellent inspiration for socially conscious shopping. Her unique vintage frames come from Magpie Vintage in SW Portland, OR.  I think the way she projects gender through her outfits is so strong and unique.

*The Salvation Army is intensely anti-gay, just so you know.
