She's got that je ne sais quoi. We fell for the vintage loving, "ugly-shoe obsessed" French vegetarian model with a quirky and playful sense of style: meet Chloe Lecareux. I photographed her on the streets of New York (on my always dying iPhone) and asked her about everything from personal style to travel essentials and her on-the-go, simple beauty routine. We played dress up in #dannijovintage clothing and our latest floral laden, crystal embellished Resort '18 collection. Scroll down to read the full interview and click the images to shop Chloe's favorite looks.

Why do you love vintage? Because you can find such unique pieces 

Who is your style icon? Lauren Hutton 

When you're not wearing vintage, what brands do you wear the most? I like young designers for the same reasons I love vintage -- not everyone is wearing it 

What is your best advice for styling vintage? Always mix things -- your favorite jeans with a vintage Gucci t-shirt, a crisp blazer and your favorite heels.  Have fun with your style. 

What are your favorite Dannijo piece/s, and how do you style them? I love all the jewels because they just look good with everything! If I had to choose one category it would be the statement earrings

Continue the party with late-night drinks at Parker & Lenox, a speakeasy that regularly flies musicians in from New York or Buenos Aires to perform at weekends, and for salsa dancing, Club San Luis in Roma Sur is an experience in itself. It has a 20-piece live band, and the dancing is phenomenal.
