If you read my articles on Bushwick Daily you'll know that Bushwick, Brooklyn is home to a fantastic array of vintage shops for the discerning (and broke) fashionista! Last week I discovered a new boutique called Chess and the Sphinx. I spent a small fortune in there, sure, but check out this amazing haul! Also, an oldie but goodie is the chain L Train Vintage which just opened up a new location a block from my apartment eek! I picked up the blue floral dress at the end of the post for $5, yes $5 - too good to pass up! Here it all is.....
1. This gorgeous little dress is originally from Brooks Brothers!
This delightful handmade navy blue suit was on the mannequin in the window. It was what drew me into the store in the first place. When I tried it on, it fit perfectly - like it was made for me! I loved it so much I had to immediately take photos in it despite the pouring rain! (I am a Brit after all, a little rain won't kill me).
The Kate Spade was a present. Fancy eh?
Now what about this coat (for $85) beautiful red wool, just heaven and so bloody warm!
Finally the $5 dress paired with an H&M coat and some Dr Martens. Classic Brit chic.
More Bushwick vintage coming soon! Watch this space kiddos!
