Last Friday, I attended the Manhattan Vintage Show and I still feel like I am walking on cloud nine! It was my first time seeing it and from the minute I stepped inside, I felt as though I were home. I walked through what felt like endless rows of some of the finest treasures I’ve ever encountered with a sense of wonder and amazement. For me, it was like that first moment when Willy Wonka opened the doors to the chocolate room, lol! It was honestly a bit overwhelming. I didn’t know where to look first and my heart was pounding a mile a minute while my brain tried to process what I was seeing! It’s hard to put into words what it was like to visit such a place, I think it is something every true vintage lover should experience firsthand. Continue reading

I got some good deals, met some great people and had a fantastic time! Continue reading

Lucky for me, she did not purchase it.
After trying it on, I knew I had to take it home with me. The thing that surprised me the most about this frock was that it is not actually vintage, which it certainly appeared at first glance. Nope! This fit n’ flare dress was made by none other than Isaac Mizrahi…for Target! At 10 bucks, I just could not resist. Continue reading
Nothing says Summer like a red & white gingham day dress. While trying to keep cool in last weeks grueling heatwave, this lightweight cotton frock was truly a life saver! Continue reading
I have been wanting to do a regular post about women on the streets of NYC for a while now. Every time I saw an outfit or a hairstyle that I wanted to photograph, I didn’t have my camera with me! Luckily, earlier this week I spotted the lovely Aurora while shopping on Clinton Street and I just happened to have my Nikon handy! Continue reading
