It sounds counter intuitive, but on my trip to NYC, I swore I would not shop. Well, shop excessively. It turned out, I did go shopping with my friend Drea, but it was because *she* needed a new dress for a wedding she is attending next month. I was just along to *help.* She brought me to Beacon’s Closet in Williamsburg, the hugest buy/sell/trade shop I’ve ever been to. I swear, it had so many wonderful treasures, I piled up on good finds…as when I go to these buy/sell/trade places, I tend to be a lot more selective by choosing only designer or real vintage items. Really, it’s not worth it to buy used Forever21…even though I have done it.
In the pile of goodies, I got an Opening Ceremony chambray dress, a few more pieces, I’ll show you soon, I love them all. This kaftan dress by Nieves Lavi, was a total dark horse. I tend to stay away from these kinds of silhouettes in fear that they ‘don’t flatter my figure’ but it was hard not to fall in love with the rich colors the beautiful print and the comfort of the fabric. It’s a dress that feels like summer.
