Thrifting in Williamsburg

Williamsburg is my favorite neighborhood to go thrift shopping because they have a variety of shops with a lot of good merchandise. I usually stop by Buffalo Exchange, Monk’s, Crossroads Trading Co, and my favorite, Beacon’s Closet.

Beacon’s Closet

The first time I went to the Williamsburg Beacon’s Closet, I was so overwhelmed by the amount of clothes they had. Thankfully they organize their clothes by color so it’s a pretty easy look through. I’m usually able to find some cool, unique pieces here too.

I was so happy to find these hot pants in my size! They’re comfy and I love the gold tone in this knit.

This dress has an elegant cut, but its material allows it to be worn casually. I was happy this was in my size, since it is a fitted dress. But the slit is what really got me!

I love the over-sized floral and bright pink color. It’s a sweet, but fun print. The silhouette reminds me of a peplum blouse, which is everywhere this season.

Buffalo Exchange

Buffalo Exchange doesn’t carry much vintage pieces, just second-hand. They’re great with keeping on-trend merchandise with pretty good prices.

I love a little twist to a basic T. The silky bodice can keep you comfortable and chic.

This dress was one of those “So cute, I have to have it!” purchases. It basically combines everything I like: lace, high-low skirt, open back, and my favorite clothing colors!

I hope this encourages everyone to visit their local thrift stores, or make a trip to Williamsburg! Just make sure you’re in the thrifting zone, because it does take a lot of patience and energy. It’s tedious to look through a bunch of old clothes, but it’ll be worth it when you find that cool vintage piece for a low price!

Brandy Melville Haul

I am completely obsessed with Brandy Melville! Ever since I discovered this soho boutique last year, I’ve been hooked on their super soft knit sweaters and cotton tanks. Everything is one size fits most, which is a true statement. Their perfectly loose clothes accommodates all sizes, so don’t be put off by that! It’s like Cali all year round in that store, and I’m a sucker for beachwear. This edgy boho boutique is the best place to stock up for summer!

I love the play on your exposed ribs on the side, with a graphic on the front.

Don’t be horrified! This is the back view for this grunge tank.

This girly goth crop sweater so resembles Wildfox Couture.

Cloud blue, soft knit, loose tank dress. The perfect beach cover-up!

I’ve been waiting for these destroyed cotton candy shorts to arrive in stores for the longest time! These shorts just scream out summer to me. Might bring these out on July 4th for a cute variation of red, white, and blue.

Finally the accessories! The leather studded skull bracelet reminds me of this beautiful Mulberry Lily bag, which I wish I could afford! One day…

Clothing Haul

F21

I’ve discovered how flattering bubblegum pink is on all skin tones!

This fabric gives the illusion of pleats.

Mint is such a fun color this spring! Definitely going to cut off the ribbon, because I’m not going for the church look. I haven’t decided whether I’m going to shorten it yet. I’d pair this lovely lace with Jeffrey Campbell Spiked Litas and a leather jacket.

I’ve been obsessed with lavender lately. This delicate color matches perfectly with the sweetheart neckline and baby doll silhouette.

Roughen up some pale pink vintage Levi’s

I like how cutout strap design adds some edge. Everyone needs a nice silk tank to throw over skinny jeans for those “effortlessly chic” lazy days!
