Yesterday was quite a lovely day, Jeremy and I both had off from work together which I am always excited about. He works pretty long hours, so it is nice when we get a day off together, let alone two days in a row (today we are also off hehe) So we took a trip into Williamsburg to go to Beacon's closet to do some trading. I recently went through all my clothes, as well as stuff I had sitting around for the shop but never listed, and a few items that were in my shop that were just not selling. In the end I had a stuffed wheely grandma cart and another tote bag filled with stuff to trade. The other day I remembered how there is a Park Slope location, and after luggin all that stuff there by myself, I came to realize that location did not have very much stuff, and hardly any vintage.. so I took my bags and decided to go to the WillyB one first. I ended up getting like $140 in trade, and still have $50 left after getting two shirts for Jeremy and 4 dresses! I still have a whole bunch they didn't take, so I think I am going to give the Park Slope store another go, so at least Jeremy can use my credit there. Oh, did I mention you can only use the credit at the store you trade at? Thats why I took my stuff and left, lame!
After dropping off my stuff for them to go through (normally I would have liked to be present for the trade, but hunger was calling) we wentt to go get some food at Bad Burger on Grand. They have a wide selection of vegan/veggie stuff.. so good!! I got this swiss and ham stuffed french toast!!! Dear lord, I can not even begin to tell you how delish it was! I highly recommend the place, breakfast all day long!
The weather here in NY this past week has just been perfect light jacket/sweater fall weather, it came in very suddenly and decided to stick around for a while to the delight of New Yorkers everywhere. I took full advantage by wearing this lovely green velvet dress. It is hard to see in these photos, but it is a lovely shade of dark green, with cute lace sleeves. I got this dress in Western MA on a trip up to see my friends last year. We stopped at a yard sale right outside of North Hampton I think it was, and I got this dress and another I sold a while back for $5 each!! The lady who sold them to me was the original owner of the dresses who said they had been in storage in her attic since 1968 when she wore them for like a graduation and a wedding. She asked that I take good care of them, I told her they would be loved unconditionally! This cape I got off etsy last fall and hardly got the chance to wear before it good too cold for even this. So I have been wearing it pretty much every day since this cool weather came in. The sheer thigh highs are from victoria secret, being held up by a garter belt from Target hehe. And the shoes, as I'm sure you all know by now, were thrifted years ago, probably one of my most favorite pairs as they pretty much go with anything.
