nyc vintage finds

happy new year!

i’m spending the weekend at my parent’s house in san diego…it was absolutely beautiful here today!  the perfect start to a new year.

before i get immersed in margaritas, food, friends and fam, i thought i’d share (as promised) my NYC vintage finds!

unfortunately, while there, we didn’t have time to explore the many, many vintage shops and thrift stores, but we did stop by a few.  first, we ventured into resurrection on mott street.  it was vintage at it’s finest!  emilio pucci, halston, gucci…i think you get the point…although the clothing was gorgeous, it was a tad out of my price range.  FYI – there’s also a resurrection in los angeles.  next, we went to laurel canyon in soho.  it was full of 70′s vintage western wear – cowboy boots, prairie dresses, leather vests, vintage t-shirts, etc…all great stuff, but truly vintage and truly pricey.

i learned, very quickly, that although vintage is what i want, it is quite expensive.  makes sense though, as the owners of these boutiques have already put in the hard work of finding the items;  therefore, they have the right to attach a hefty price tag.  i decided then that thrift stores are more my speed – i get the excitement of finding one of kind items and can attach my own hefty price tag.  (kidding…i’m going for affordable.)

eventually, we ended up at the national council of jewish women (council thrift shop).  the women ran a tight ship, but were very helpful and knowledgeable.  i ended up with several items and went home a happy girl.

these items are headed for etsy, but as always, if you’re interested…let me know!

quick recap

hello friends!

the trip to NYC was simply amazing!  that city has a vibe like no other.  i was in awe of the people, the buildings, the feeling of history and culture…words really can’t express it!  the memories made on this trip will remain close to my heart for years to come.  i’m especially thankful that my son and i were able to experience our first trip to NYC together.  i can’t thank my bf enough…for this trip created a very important bond between the three of us.  *sigh*

where did we go?  what did we do??  well…we went to times square, the american museum of natural history, took a walk through central park, headed over to 5th ave and fao schwarz, walked the streets of soho, stopped at a few thrift stores, ate brunch at cozy diners, stayed in the coolest, most ecclectic hotel (hotel chelsea), observed the city from the empire state building (wow!) and visited dylan’s candy bar.  there were a few things that we didn’t get to do and see, but that’s okay…gives us an excuse to go back!  ;)

so now that i’m home, i haven’t had much time to devote to my blog…i’ve had work to catch up on, friends to see, homework to help with, tests to help study for, parties to go to…whew…there just aren’t enough hours in the day!

i’m working on posting pictures of my NYC vintage finds and a few other things as well.  bear with me!  in the meantime, i wanted to share a few of my fave pics from the trip…enjoy!






new york state of mind

guess what?!  I’M LEAVING FOR NYC ON SATURDAY!!!  i’m so excited!

my wonderful boyfriend, william, is taking me and my son…it’s our first trip ever! (i’ll post pictures upon my return)

thinking about the cold weather we’re about to face, i started to imagine actually living in NYC and owning lots of great coats!  so, i did a quick search on the web and came up with a few that i’m dying over and one that i actually have the pleasure of owning.  :)
