I am a Puerto Rican-Italian-Jewess born and raised on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, NYC!
I have loved vintage since I was a very young girl playing with my mother’s circa 1962 Barbie doll and my grandmothers confetti luctite purse from the early 1950’s.
When I grew up, I wanted to be Judy Garland as I wore out my VHS copy of “The Wizard of Oz”.
I first started buying vintage clothing on my own the summer before I started junior high school. I purchased a halter top from a bin at Reminiscence in NYC for $5.00.
Marilyn Monroe is one of my heroes and has been since the 7th grade.
My favorite films include An Affair to Remember, Casablanca, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Some Like it Hot, How to Marry a Millionaire, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, IT, Bringing Up Baby, Rear Window, Dial M for Murder and anything else by Alfred Hitchcock ❤
My dream date involves either Cary Grant or Elvis Presley. Which totally coincides with the best dream i ever had where Elvis and I are in a theater and he wraps me up in a mink coat and puts his arm around me and my head on his shoulder. Sigh……
I collect vintage clothing, costume jewelry, hats, purses, headvases, salt n’ pepper shakers and mirrors.
My favorite era’s for style are the Late 1930’s-Early 1960’s. But I adore Victorian, Edwardian, Art Deco & Art Nouveau for Fine Jewelry and Decor!
