Ok, so I didn’t when I ventured into Govnor’s Vintage (Park Slope’s new vintage thrift shop), but it’s definitely in the cards for me.
Shopping vintage is not only one of my favorite things to do (I literally built a clothing line out of vintage t’s, but that’s a whole nother post and was what feels like a million years ago), but it is also earth friendly! Vintage shopping is your fashion equivalent to recycling plastic bottles (or paper, boxes, whatever, you get it).
While, of course, most of my closet consists of new pieces from new designers, the highlights are certainly vintage and those are some of my most fun pieces.
Today I snagged this amazing floral wrap dress. Paired with flops in the summer=supereasy or with some cute flats, a long necklace (like these long Balinese pearls from my collection, www.evelynnjewelry.com), and a cropped cardigan and you’re set for a night out on the town.
Next time I hit up Guvnor’s I’m bringing a bag full of stuff from my closet (as I have a ton of stuff I decided I don’t “need” after this past move) to trade, as I saw a few things I wasn’t sure if I should have left behind!
