Sequin dress find at No Relation in the East Village
“I’ve been wearing vintage clothing and shopping at thrift stores for fun since I was really young. For example, some of these hard clutches I got when I was around 18 years old and they somehow manage to still be cool.”
Bags from a recent holiday in Thailand
“This bag was $5 and I just sewed all the coin charms on from eBay. You buy the charms in bulk and you can cover as many bags as you want.”

“They’re like real hand cuffs that police officers carry.”
Drawer of vintage necklaces
“I got this necklace from an antique store in NYC kinda reminds me of my Mum. I bought two just so she could have one. It’s kind of big and clunky and kinda looks vintage but it’s a statement necklace. It’s one of those things that you just throw it on and you are good to go you know?”
