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.

Spot On

Don't you love those weekend mornings when you have nothing to do and nowhere to go? On Saturday, I woke up insanely early with nothing on the agenda til the afternoon, and because the sun was out and the weather was drop dead gorgeous, I decided to get all dressed up and head out for coffee with Sunita V.

We met up at Gorilla Coffee in Park Slope, and then stopped by Allure On Fifth--a high-end consignment shop--to briefly window shop. Later, we hopped the train to Midtown to run some errands before parting ways.

For the early morning coffee run, I wore a sheer polka dotted dress from Asos (scored on sale for $28), and replaced the dress's actual liner--which was a bit too clingy for my tastes--with a leopard-spotted dress I found at Buffalo Exchange Chelsea for just $8.

I finished off the look with a vintage belt purchased at the Goodwill in Orlando for $0.99, and a pair of basic pumps ($1) scored at  Cure Thrift Shop's dollar sale earlier this month. (Sunglasses are c/o WowVintage.) Head to toe, the whole outfit came out to $38.
