For me, fashion is serious business. So I put together an ultra sophisticated fall look with some of my favorite pieces from Warby Parker and Express. Then I headed to Williamsburg in Brooklyn for some more Autumn-inspired elegance.
Most of you probably haven’t seen me in glasses before because I’m a part time glasses wearer. I need them to drive and to see things far away. But even if I didn’t need them I would still totally head over to Warby Parker and pick out a pair because their styles are all so cute and classic. The frames that fit me best were Oliver in Whiskey Tortoise. I always feel ultra chic and smart when I wear them.
Lately, I’ve been on a huge vintage kick. I just love how everything seems to tell the story of a unique era. A few months ago, I came across one of the most unique vintage stores in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn.
The store was founded by Lexi (pictured left) and named Antoinette after her mother who worked in the fashion industry in the late 1950’s for the NYC based French milliner, Lilly Dache. She proceeded to collect a warehouse full of vintage items up through the 1990’s. Since her mother always encouraged her to open a vintage shop, Lexi has done so with all the treasures her mother collected over the years. I love stopping in and chatting with Lexi about all the pieces each of which is truly unique and filled with a story of its own. I’m so buying my Mother’s Day gift this year here.
So many eras, so little time
Ever since the premiere of the show, Pan Am bags are turning up in vintage stores everywhere.
