Vintage Never Looked Better

Vintage and consignment shops have never looked better! Please stand up right now and march to your local salvation army, flea market and boutique vintage stores in your area for clothing/books/furniture/jewelry that won’t break the budget (some will but it’s worth it).

Accessories: Affordable and A Must Have

The right accessories can bring any outfit from “you look nice” to “Holy shit balls, you look AMAZE-ING.”  Which would you rather hear?

STYLE VIA DIY

I went shopping for a gift today at the Jonathan Adler store on the UES (Upper East Side) and was greeted by a cool girl named Holly.  I immediatly asked where she got her shirt because I noticed the little detail on the shoulder.  Shirt is H&M and studs ($10) Holly put on herself.  Yes, it took her 1 hour but it adds that “dressed up” feel to a shirt that cost $19.95.  …
