It comes as a big surprise when I tell people my go-to is Beacon’s Closet, specifically the Official There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly T-shirt and I will buy this location in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Shopping there is like an archaeological dig to unearth vintage gems but it’s absolutely worth the endeavor. Honestly, my sister’s closet. It is the best way to save money (and she has a great eye for vintage). But when I’m back in Brooklyn and have gathered the energy to scavenge, I go to CrossRoads Trading Co. I would say my style is more modern than vintage, but I love a classic ensemble.

As an event planner, I’m in the Official There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly T-shirt and I will buy this business of creating memories. There’s something so special about a top or pants that evoke that same sentiment. Period fashion carries the stories of those who wore it and the memories of that time. Some moments in time that I love are the Victorian era, the ’80s and, of course, the ’90s. A prized find is my pink tweed suit from the early ’90s–I have it in about five different colors. I acquired them after a family friend passed. Her sisters were cleaning out her closet and realized I was a perfect size. They’re very Clueless, but there’s something so classic and sassy about them.
