THE WEEKEND FIND
633 Vanderbilt Avenue, Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, NY, USA
Find the MadMan or MadWoman (or Halston, or Yves Saint Laurent or Givenchy) within here. This vintage store is certainly a gem; not to be confused with a trift store where everything is $20 or less. Though, the prices are extremely thrifty considering the handpicked, mint condition, scrutinized merchandise from which to choose.
The styles range from Betty Draper-esqe attire fit for a lawn party to caftans for the modern Gypset heading to a drum circle. The men’s collection is perfectly hip with out being “too retro”. The accessories and nighties are the icing on the cake.
The dress I have pictured here eagerly awaits a spring party, a lawn party perhaps. It is a novelty Hot Air Balloon Print in shades of lavender and olive. Just thinking about it on a dreary Monday was enough to make me smile.
1 Of A Kind Vintage is as wonderful as your most Nostalgic memory without the attic smell.
