In this vintage video from the 1970s, a bunch of average Brits were asked for their take on the burgeoning platform shoe trend that was sweeping the streets of London. Unwearable? Impossibly chic? Oh, they’ll definitely tell you what they think. What I wouldn’t do for some of these vintage pairs. [Pathe]

If you’ve ever gone thrift shopping with me and my lady friends, you know that it’s nothing less than an all out major event. We make a day of it, and plan out which shops to visit based on who’s got good shoes, housewares and little-boy blazers (my personal favorite). We thrift for fun — and for the occasional mind-blowing find — but there’s plenty of people who make a living out of it, reselling their best finds on eBay, or in upscale consigner and vintage shops. And that’s what the new Oxygen Network show “Thrift Work” hopes to cover. I can already feel this show making me jealous. [NYMag.com]

Etsy Spotlight: Mirror, Mirror On The Wall

Mirrors are a great way to make a room seem bigger or add visual interest to your space. Mirrors with ornate frames can hold their own next to framed art and photos, and I love how unexpected they look mixed in with non-reflective decorations. Another great way to utilize a gorgeous mirror? Lay it down on your dresser or vanity and stack your prettiest jewelry and perfume bottles on it–suddenly your bedroom will feel like an old school boudoir. We scoured Etsy and found 8 mirrors in a variety of gorgeous vintage frames — all for 50 bucks or less. Click through to check ‘em out…

Not gonna lie, when Amelia sent me the link to Courtney Love’s closet tour of her West Village townhouse, my first response was “TERRIFYING.” I mean, think of all the misplaced cigarette butts, the stray hair extensions, the tatters. But actually? Courtney’s got some fine stuff. During her closet tour with Scott Lipps, Courtney expounds on the wonders of gloves, the joys of Victorian clothing and why her “utilitarian” Chloe blouse (which, let’s be honest, costs more than everything in my closet put together) is her favorite thing ever.
