Camille: The Hunter Gatherer

"I'm definitely vintage inspired, but I don't commit to any specific era.  I often mix and match vintage styles."

Camille has an Etsy shop called The Hunter Gatherers, where you can purchase an assortment of vintage clothing and accessories.  "The goods that I collect are 20 years or older, but you'll definitely find a lot of styles from the 90's -- my era of preference."

Natalie: Knit n' Purl Girl

Knitting is all the rage in our family.  Often, Dorothy and I are amazed by her sister Janet's scarf, mitten and doggie-sweater creations.

While hunting for yarn, we recently met Natalie (pictured above) who works at Lettuce Knit, a cozy Kensington Market yarn store.

"I like vintage and old-fashioned things with modern twists -- good tailoring, well made and probably by me."

You can follow Natalie's Twitter and and her blog, Leeleetea -- both offering advice on cool knit wear.

And to purchase cool knit wear, visit Janet's Etsy shop here or follow her blog, Some Random Knit.

Tennille: New Beginnings Pt.2
