coats and balloons


dress -
urban outfitters | shoes - steve madden | coat - thrifted | necklace - laila rowe

I found the comfiest and warmest coat, HOODED, from my regular upper west side thrift store the othe day. Chopped off a good 5 inches form the bottom (it was looking too granny) and we're good to go... played Sunday dress up before proceeding to some semi-depressing bouts of reading and cramming. Whee. Nothing like being dressed up to kickstart some crazy studying.

OH and those balloons are from Columbia's homecoming game, which we lost, as usual. Yikes. :[

  9. illy - there are SO many random thrift stores all over! :) i woudl recommend actually popping in any thrift store you happen to come across and just digging through. amarcord vintage is in brooklyn, they have a semi-annual clearout sale where everything goes for SO CHEAP and it's really good quality. there's a few places in chelsea also to check out - angel street thrift, housing works thrift, and even the salvation army on 8th ave in chelsea is really cool too (21st and 20th)... sometimes its hard to dig through but totally worth it. it's really just about spending time and digging through everything, even the shabbiest looking thrift stores have given me the COOLEST finds / clothes etc. :)
