My Converse and skater shoes collection is my love, but I know I need to grow up (oh, so sad) and get some more dressy shoes and style (which I've been running away from for...ever). 

I need to learn how to put outfits together too, no Gossip Girl Serena's mad throw-on-anything-and-look-good fashion skills here.  I really like the vintage looks I came across recently in some great fashion blogs. 

Some people can wear a garbage bag and make the look the next fall trend!  I'm so envious of those people with skills.

Anyone got tips and such on how you achieved a new look? How do you put outfits together?
