It's time to take a cue from your favorite fashionable celeb and expand our horizons by bringing some old back into our modern wardrobes.

We're talking about vintage clothing -- the kind that has become even more of a popular phenomenon now that such trend-setting stars like Sara Jessica Parker and Nicole Richie are sporting frocks from the past on a regular basis.

Get a head start on channeling your inner Rachel Bilson by heading over to District Bar Wednesday for the fourth installement of "The Fashion District." This week's theme is "Retro Rewind," so expect to see fab frocks from the likes of Deliciously Vintage, Little Black Dress Vintage, Fashion Fusion and Funky Bro Vintage.

Feast your fashionable eyes on trends from the '40s, '50s, '60s and beyond and learn how to take some sexy cat eye glasses or tap shorts and pair them with more modern pieces for a kick-ass celeb look.

While you're perusing the looks, take advantage of  ½ price bottles of wine and salads while taking in styling tips and taking in the runway show where all the looks come together.

From fashion-aficionado Rachel Zoe's insane collections of vintage jewelry (she claims to "die" when she spies a piece she loves), to the resurgence of brands putting out “heritage” collections and reviving past designs, that good ole’ saying, “Everything old is new again” is making its case.

Now if only SJP would open up her closet to the public.

7-11 p.m., 170 W Ontario, No Cover
