I have always had a special gift for finding amazing things at thrift stores, garage sales, etc. One thing I've found out about New York since moving here is that the thrift stores are all picked-over and over-priced, something I found surprising! While on vacation I went thrift shopping in Seattle and Hollywood with my friends Sarah and Andrew respectively and basically bought my entire Fall wardrobe. Some of my noteworthy purchases included a sapphire blue Le Tigre cardigan, two leather skirts, one suede skirt, Michael Kors slacks, two pairs of vintage Salvatore Ferragamo shoes (in size 5 1/2, which means they will be sold in my Etsy store), a Tahari angora sweater, two cashmere sweaters and Nautica sailor pants. Here's a small snapshot of the goods!
