I'm Kate and I live in Pittsburgh, PA where I own and operate a little vintage shop called Highway Robbery. I stock all kinds of fun and random clothing and accessory items from the 1960's to the early 90's. I've loved wearing and collecting vintage since I started raiding my mom's closet for quirky school outfits in first grade. Since then, I've worked in just about every facet of retail....from being a sales associate at Forever 21 to selling high end designer goods at Saks to being a buyer at a resale store to styling for photo shoots, TV, movies, and music videos. I have lots of fashion/retail experience, but I'm learning new things about this industry daily. That's why I like it so much!
There is a thread running through past, present, and future trends. I hope to put together some posts that help connect the dots. I'll be posting lots of photos about how to style vintage looks/items and tips on shopping for vintage clothing. I thought Buzznet would be a fun way to reach out to some like-minded individuals.
Me in my store :)
