My Mom and Me in Brooklyn

Here are those pictures I was talking about in my last post about my New York City trip last weekend. My mom's been hounding me to put them up, I hope she likes them ;) Stéphane took these shots while we were waiting outside of Beacon's Closet to do some serious vintage buying and trading. I really like how the pictures turned out. So this is my little stylish mom, she is the one that brought vintage and thrifting into my life, I hated it when I was a kid but today it is part of who I am and I am proud of it :)


 I ended up bringing a ton of stuff with me to sell and then take the trade and buy a ton of stuff there but alas nothing tickled my fancy this time around. I guess this place is hit or miss, or maybe I am just to picky since I already have so much vintage clothing at home. All and all I had a great time with my mom and Stéphane I ended up finding a pretty dress at Buffalo Exchange, my mom found a bunch of great things, you guys should check out her own style blog called Montreal-Style Sud Est, she comes up with some pretty original looks for ladies over 50. I was wearing a vintage Balenciaga silk blouse from Fringues&Cie, vintage leather jacket from Local 23, vintage cardigan,AA leggins, Shades from Sunglasse stand on St-Marks street, vintage cowboy boots(gift from Stéphane) and vintage Alfred Shung backpack.
