So today I visited 3 more of my favorite NYC Vintage/Thrift stores. Boy oh boy I found some goodies. Armed with $40 bucks in cash I made my way down to “The Triangle”. I call it The Triangle because there are 3 stores within half a block of each other and I hit them all up. Starting with Vintage Thrift on 3rd Ave between 22 and 23 St. Next up I went to Housing Works Thrift Store at 23rd St between Lexington and 3rd Ave. Next I walked down to Goodwill on 23rd St between 2nd and 3rd Ave. I blew my budget of course and you’ll see why.

Vintage Thrift
286 3rd Ave (22 & 23 St), New York, NY(212) 871-0777 
They have a great selection of coats, hats and dresses.
I bought this little black hat for $15 Yay

Unfortunately I couldn’t fit these black boots 🙁

Housing Works Thrift Shop
b/w 3rd and Lexington, 157 E 23rd St, New York, NY(212) 529-5955 
This place has the best jewelry selection and coats/blazers.
I scored this Diesel Necklace with a capsule for $18

This Dolce and Gabbana Tweed Blazer seriously broke my budget at $100 I should have never tried it on!

Me in my new D&G blazer. Oh the possibilities for this piece.

Goodwill
23rd St between 2nd and 3rd Ave
This place is huge and color coded. You will find tons of denim shorts, tweed pants and dresses here.

I scored these wool tweed pants for $5.99 Sweeeeeeeeeet!

My new necklace

So guys what do you think i should put into the capsule? It unscrews open. So cool!
$18 at Housing Works

Loving my new hat!

    I admire your ability to thrift. I don’t have the gene. 7 minutes in, I’m over it and will swear the store had nothing. *sigh
