Vintage in NYC


I was able to get back to NYC for a long weekend and it was absolutely amazing. Halloween weekend and the marathon were happening, which was awesome, and I got to see so many wonderful friends, and surprise one of my very best friends at her baby shower!

One of my favorite things about NYC is simply to wander. Because it´s a city that is always moving and changing, things are always popping up like new shops and restaurants. I was in NYC just a few months ago and already I am noticing things that have changed, closed, or opened.

I was strolling through the East Village, my old stomping grounds, which always makes me nostalgic, when I stopped into a small vintage shop on East 7th street between 1st and 2nd avenues. I have been looking for literally 2 years to replace a small black vintage clutch I had that was falling apart. ( I bought the original black clutch in the East Village at a vintage shop about 5 years ago that has long since closed). I looked in several vintage shops in Florence, Italy, in London, and more with no luck (I did manage to buy other things though but no black bag!)

Anyway, I didn´t see anything at first, and was about to walk out when I spotted a very cute black clutch for just $10! So of course I bought it, and now the black clutch hunt has finally come to an end!
