Previously, atombash.com introduced you to Philadelphia Most Stylish Influencer, Chloe Johnston, Founder and President of a luxury touring company bearing her name.
This week, we want to introduce you to one of Philadelphia’s best kept secret. Queen of vintage, retro and antique fashion pieces, Denise Dougherty, affectionately known as DD, is the founder of Fine Lines which is an Ebay online retail shop that caters to the lover of unique finds.
How does Ms. Dougherty find some of the pieces that she sells on her Ebay shop? She is a serious flea market shopper, thrift store buyer, and garage sale specialist who uses her keen eye to hone in on items that are desirable to her fashionable clients. From hats, to dresses and even buttons, if you need it, she can get it.
DD is also known for her styling ability and is often sought after for fashion expertise. Whether it is evening gown shopping or what to wear to a tea party, DD helps women look and feel their very best.
Ms. DD considers her style to be a little different than most frugal fashionistas? “I am a woman that doesn’t have a set style. I don’t follow fashion. At my age, you have to be careful that you don’t look inappropriate. I want to represent my age which is a good 66.”
DD offers a little advice to women who want to look stylish and chic at a mature age. “Be willing to cut your hair, it can take off a few years. Wear clothing that fits well and please don’t wear clothing that you would see on your children.”
DD also offers a styling tip that can make you the most beautiful and stylish woman in the room. “It is said that a smile is your best accessory. Nothing can be truer.” She also adds, “Be a woman that can offer a compliment to another. Nothing is more pleasant and chic than a woman who can say, ‘Excuse me, but I had to tell you that you look fabulous!’”
When DD is not shopping for exclusive fashion, she can be found people watching in Center City or shooting interesting images with her camera.
