technicolor dreamcoat

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?

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…

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.

Like Jessica’s vintage cameo necklace?  Consider turning a vintage pin into a pendant.

With winter hitting NYC hard yesterday, we are rushing out to stock up on the oh-so-necessary wardrobe staple, opaque black tights.  For today, here’s our homage to warmer weather. Hoping it won’t be the last time for bare legs this year….

Tip. When shopping for tights, go for a pair with a high denier (density of the fiber) to achieve maximum opacity.  Try these.
