If there were an Indiana Jones for fashion, Marlien Rentmeester would be cracking that timeless whip as we type. The style hunter catalogues her low-cost, must-buy-now discoveries on LE CATCH, a site that makes shopping the trends without blowing your paycheck actually possible.
The minimalist site reads like an online treasure trove of sure-to-sell-out items, ranging from must-have dresses, shockingly inexpensive heels, and affordable jackets that totally channel Isabel Marant. Her taste is so spot-on, in fact, that she even left her gig as the West Coast editor for Lucky a few months back to focus on her feed of fabulous finds full-time. (For real!)
Wanting to find out more about her method for snapping up the chicest styles from a sea of fast fashion sites and stores, we hit the white-hot neighborhood of Venice to get an in-depth tour, LE CATCH style. Take a peek at the fashion maven's drop-dead-gorgeous ensembles, and don't get too jealous of her surprisingly affordable, crazy-cool duds. Take note of her lessons, and you could be doin' it the Marlien way soon, too!
