There are a few levels of Sammy D Vintage that I love the most. One of them is obviously hunting for the best vintage, driving all around New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and beyond. But after the buying comes the styling — and with the styling comes some awesome time spent in the showroom with the awesome ladies who represent the platform of Style & Substance that SDV encapsulates.
Meet Susie G, a blogger-DJ-fashionista I met through the Big Apple’s network of young, ambitious and totally awesome 20-somethings. Susie went to school in Boston where she started the awesome street style blog Click/Clash, picked up DJing a weekly party and regular here-comes-the-fashion banger [read: people dress to impress at her parties] and graduated with a ton of experience and an eye for style and an understanding of the people who wear it. Oh, and did I forget to mention that this cooler-than-me girl has the sweetest personality and definitely knows a thing or two about compassion and respect? Yeah, that’s Susie. Coolest girl ever with a heart of gold.
I asked Susie to stop by the showroom so I could loan her some clothes for the many parties she’ll be attending for this year’s New York Fashion Week, which kicks off VERY very soon. Susie’s look is more Nylon than Glamour, so we styled her in some throwback 90s pieces plus a few pieces of fringe, flowers, and just plain ole’ FUN.
Scroll on to see her looks — and check out those cheekbones! Not only can Susie style, spin and party like a rockstar, I’m pretty sure she’s an SDV model in the making, too.
