We recently got the pleasure of catching up with one of our favorite blogger babes, Leslie of Splendid Rags! We are lucky enough to count Leslie as one of our friends and we have admired her fabulous style for quite some time now… She has the innate ability to match vintage pieces with today’s fashions seamlessly and we can’t get enough of her fun and bright style, I mean the prints she pairs are so on point!! You MUST run to her Instagram and peek at all the loveliness, we’ve truly never seen a feed quite so fun! Not only that but Leslie is such a genuine and kind gal, a true gem! We decided to meet up with her at one of her go to vintage shops, Elsewhere Vintage at the Orange Circle in Orange, CA to see just how she does it!!

Tell us a little bit about Splendid Rags and you…
My name is Leslie Schneider. I live in Orange County, California where I have been working as a stylist for the past four years. I have many passions but one of them includes creating fun and interesting outfits! Splendid Rags is essentially an extension of my creativity and travels.
I never look for anything super specific. Just pieces that are eye catching or really unique.
What are some of your favorite brands of the moment to mix with your vintage finds?
Madewell and J.Crew has always been a “good go” to of mine. These brands have clean and minimal designs that are easy to mix with the outragous and vibrant vintage pieces in my closet. I appreciate a timeless modern brand.
