Vintage Meets Modern

After spending the Easter holiday weekend relaxing upstate with the family, facing the workweek on Monday was a bit of a personal challenge (isn't it always?). And so, instead of springtime pastels, I decided to mourn the end of weekend with a nearly all-black work outfit.

I went with the ikat-printed pants I scored at Goodwill for $7.50 (last worn here), and paired it with a $10 black faux-leather top I purchased at a small East Village boutique's closing sale. For footwear, I decided to try and break-in some new black wedges ($32) from TJ Maxx, which I bought as a chic-but-sensible option for work.

Since there's still an early spring chill in the air, I also wore a black vintage jacket, which I snagged at the Thrift Disco in Brooklyn for just $10 earlier this month. (BTW, the next Thrift Disco is on May 31!) And, because the sun was out in full force, I finished off the look with my cateye sunglasses, c/o WowVintage. (Get the same pair here.) Head to toe, the Monday work outfit came out to $59.50.

Sunset Park Brunch

Happy Friday thrifters! Last weekend was so action packed I'm still swamped with a backlog of photos, but I definitely wanted to share a few snapshots from a friend's brunch party last Saturday. Unfortunately, the weather has since taken a turn for the worse (it's been in the 30s most mornings this week, ugh), and so I'll probably spend more of this weekend holed up at home.

On sunny Saturday last week, however, I headed to Sunset Park, Brooklyn, where my friend lives in an adorable apartment on a beautiful tree-lined, brownstone block. We drank cocktails and munched on an insane amount of brunch food, including fruit, croissants, breakfast tacos, a baked egg casserole and pancakes. Koko even got a friend to play with--a cute little chihuahua named Kimchi!

Since the number-one order of the day was to chill and catch up with friends, I wore a simple white cotton tee (cost unknown) and a pair of boyfriend jeans scored at Unique Thrift Store for $7. Plus, I finally got a chance to rock the super-comfy jelly gladiator sandals I found in the Cauz for Pawz bargain basement for just $5.

To accessorize, I threw on a gifted BaubleBar necklace, and some borrowed sunnies a friend thrifted from Brick Lane on a recent trip to London. Head to toe, the whole look came out to around $12.

Also, just a reminder that tomorrow (Saturday, April 19th) is Buffalo Exchange's Dollar Sale! Happening across all Buffalo Exchange locations, the sale's proceeds will benefit the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum in honor of Earth Day. You can get more info here. Happy hunting! 

Thrift Disco Recap

Hey thrifters! Just wanted to share some photos from last week's Thrift Disco, held at the Bat Haus co-working space in Bushwick on Friday. I attended the event with a couple friends, and we sipped some wine and checked out vintage and handmade items from vendors like Diana Joy Jams, Miss Batch, and Muzukashii Onna, just to name a few.  If you missed this Disco, don't worry, there's another one on the way this spring--stay tuned! You can follow them for updates on their Facebook page.
