Do you see all of those stars?

I was in New York this past week and it was SO MUCH FUN. Being in a city where everyone is wearing the coolest things and things are open past 6pm and there’s always something to do is just amazing. I had the best time ever. I got to shop, see some friends, shop, eat amazing food, shop, and did I mention that I shopped? Most of the stars up above are stores, and I actually went to almost every single one. Yeah. A lot of them are thrift shops, aka places where clothing is discounted so I feel a little less guilty about buying stuff. Here are some of my favorites!

Beacon’s Closet // I didn’t end up buying anything here, but it was super cool. I tried on a Karl Lagerfeld dress (!!!), some daisy print sneakers, and a super cool marching band esque dress. It has vintage clothing prices, but they’re fair- around 30-40$. There’s a lot of stuff in there, and a huge selection of vintage maxi dresses that would be perfect for prom or some other fancy-schmanchy occasion.

American Apparel Factory Store // I know, not a thrift store, but guys. This place. American Apparel is pretty great- nice clothing that’s made in sweatshop free factories in the US (although have had several problems with sexual harassment and the like in the past, which is not cool) and is pretty good quality. But their prices. Man. That’s where this place comes in. Tennis skirts for 30 bucks? Disco pants for 40? Definitely check it out, if you’re in the area.

Buffalo Exchange // there are a bunch of these around the city. The clothes were pretty good- there was a lot of nice stuff, but it was the shoes that sold me. If you’re a 6.5, they have racks and racks of shoes. And I got the most amazing pair of flatforms. You can be sure that I’ll be wearing them a lot in upcoming posts.

These were some of my favorite thrifty places in the city! I can’t wait to share more of what I did + bought with you guys!

    • There are so many places there it’s great! Stuff is a little more expensive, but the selection is so wonderful that it’s totally worth it.
