Natalie Joos

Fashion Blogger

This Belgian-born blogger first made her mark in New York as a casting director, scouting top talent for the likes of Hugo Boss, Helmut Lang and Phillip Lim. Her inimitable outfits — often featuring one-of-a-kind vintage pieces — soon began to draw attention from street-style photographers, opening up a world of new opportunities as a fashion consultant. Inspired by her love of vintage fashion, Joos created the site Tales of Endearment in 2010. A colorful visual diary, Tales showcases style muses, exotic excursions and, of course, all things vintage. Recently Joos virtually scoured the racks of 1stdibs dealers to uncover her favorite finds. After perusing her picks below, head to our blog, The Study, to see Joos sporting four different outfits featuring pieces by Oscar de la Renta, Comme des Garçons and Roberta Di Camerino — all of which can be yours.
