41st Annual East Village Block Fair

Every September, the East Village has these little block fairs on Saturdays and they are chock full of vintage treasures! It’s like a mini block long flea market right in the middle of Manhattan. It was an absolutely gorgeous weather day with a cool breeze, lots of warm sunshine and merchandise that was ripe for the picking! I got some good deals, met some great people and had a fantastic time! Continue reading

Last week I was looking through my closet and found this little black Betsey  Johnson dress. I bought it at a thrift shop a few weeks back and decided that today was the day to bring her out into the world.

That woman always had me fascinated as a child;  she was so poised and elegant yet she exuded sex appeal. Voluptuous and womanly with a face that could stop traffic, she was often mistaken for Dorothy L’Amour! Continue reading

You’d be hard pressed these days to find an advertisement, commercial or a magazine cover with a model in it. Celebrities are promoting darn near everything today, especially cosmetics and hair products! Scarlet Johansson for Dolce & Gabbana, Emma Stone for Revlon and Jennifer Lopez for Loreal (and then some! Seriously, when does the woman SLEEP?) are just a few that come to mind.
