technicolor dreamcoat

IMG_7596

The only thing more random than this fun technicolor jacket that I picked up at one of my go-to East Village vintage stores last weekend is this art exhibit in the form of a giant pipe that I found to shoot in!  If you’re in NYC be sure to check out A Little Wicked and No Relation for some groovy vintage finds.  What’s your favorite vintage spot?

What’s black, white, and red all over?  Me, on a super casual day.  Spice up casual wear like leggings, an oversized sweater, and kicks with a motorcycle jacket in a bright hue.  It’s an addition that takes the look from sloppy to chic in seconds.

This poncho is the result of taking cover in a vintage store from recent slush and snow flurries here in NYC.  I was wearing the yellow scarf when I purchased said poncho, and while ponchos are not usually my thing, it just went so perfectly together that I thought, why not?  While this poncho is a bit loud (even more so in person), I love its authentic, bohemian quality.  Try one of these vintage or new options for a similar statement, or raid your local vintage store and see what you discover…

style steal : one last winter coat

Oversized-Lapels-Tweed-Coat

We’re hopeful that winter is nearing its end, however, we NYC winter veterans know that it may be coat-bearing weather for a little while longer.  Because the perfect coat is half the outfit battle during winters in NYC, a girl must have options.  An oversized lapel and tweedy fabric gives this piece a super luxe vibe that’s too good to pass up.  Whether you have 6 more weeks of cold weather or will be packing this beauty straight into storage ’til next winter, it’s a stylish and classic staple that we think you’ll wear for years.

Oversized Lapel Tweed Coat, $80.

COAT Reciproque vintage find (try this blue number or a waistcoat topper) / LEATHER JACKET Rachel Roy (similar) / TOP H&M / COATED DENIM BDG (on sale now!) or try these / GLOVES Bloomingdale’s (on sale now!) / ANKLE BOOTS Stuart Weitzman (similar and on sale!)

This vintage coat was my biggest splurge on a recent trip to Paris, and while I’m still paying the credit card bill, the versatility of this piece was well worth the price.  It’s finding unique pieces like this one that make vintage shopping oh-so-rewarding.  Whether worn as a cropped jacket, waistcoat, or as full on winter garb, this coat is a multi-season piece and a new closet staple.

Tip.  Throw a waistcoat or gilet over a leather jacket in lieu of  your go-to winter coat for a thoughtfully layered look.
