Vintage finds: Bronx!

DSC02559

Derek and I made a trip to the new Michael’s in the Bronx today to buy frames for his work and a piece he did for me. When we arrived at Michael’s someone then told us they weren’t open yet so we had to go to the one in Queens where I live. While walking back to the car I noticed a huge “Thrift Store” sign peeking straight at me, and of course I had to go in. We actually went to two thrift stores in the Bronx and these are some of the goodies I found.

This hat was pretty neat, and of course I had to buy the poncho. It was so warm! Poncho: $5

I felt very holy in this cape, it was cool but way too white for me.

I told Derek that I had a feeling I would find something on that rack. BINGO! Black dress with gold sequins and pointy shoulders. These dresses are all over Soho right now selling for $100+..I got this one for $15 bucks and it fits like a glove!

Another amazing dress, and god do I love plaid! The shoulders are amazing the fit is nice and comfy and I cant wait to turn this into a 50’s ensemble. $3.50 yes people you heard right, red tag 50% off!

It’s a recession people, you can still be in fashion with cheaper price tags!
