    It's no secret that we like love vintage here at R29. After all, there's nothing classier than a modern-day gal who can rock a timeless treasure. But, because there's a big difference between a fabulous frock and a dress with crusty cups, you've got to know where to shop. One of our favorite Chicago destinations? Luxury Garage Sale, the consignment boutique with an inventory that emulates our dream closet.

    Of course, it's vintage authority and cofounder Lindsay Segal who makes LGS so awesome. So, it's no surprise that the curator of cool's keen eye is prevalent in her home, too. Lucky for us, Segal gave us a tour of her brand-new East Lakeview digs while showing off four killer ensembles with an (what else?) old-school edge.

    Described as an eclectic mix of Hollywood Regency-meets -'70s pop, Segal's pad boasts everything from a dream-come-true Lucite bed to a rare 1960s Torino Robot lamp she stalked on eBay. So, sit back, shake up a martini, and get ready to soak up some serious design (and wardrobe) inspiration.
