Doris Hobbs, founder of Rich In Love Fashion, is a model, Style Editor at Lifestyles and VRAI Magazine, and writer of one of the most succinct explanations I've ever read on the challenge of "achieving greatness in personal fashion." Her trademark look is characterized by bold, red lips, nails and hair draped in a classic, feminine silhouette.

"From a decade of fashion merchandising, I find the way we present ourselves to society is shaped partly by our interaction and sense of style. Merging a generation gap provides the modern day woman with a subtle touch of vintage flair," she told United States of Vintage.

Vintage shopping in California's Bay Area? Doris recommends these shops:

While she's on the lookout most often for furs ($10 to $20 for stoles and $50 to $80 for wraps), clutches ($10 to $45) and costume jewelry, she said these stores are also great options for vintage gloves ($7 to $12) and dresses ($80 to $150).

"The treasures that rest within these boutiques, I adore the stories that are shared with me from the women that once owned these accessories or garments. It gives depth to what I am presenting, which in return provides such enrichment," Doris said.
