Living in a city with picked over thrift stores, high prices at vintage stores,
Beacon's Closet shines like a very bright star!
Where else can you score a Moschino skirt for only $20.00??? I can't come up with anything, can you? Um, try Beacon's Closet!!!
You know what else I love? I love that "Shorty" here, the random man on in Hell's Kitchen, make me look like I'm model-tall! If only that were really the case, then I could die a happy, happy woman. Darn, I'm only medium-tall in real life.
And another thing I love, Rudy's Bar and Grill! Free hotdogs people!
And Rudy the Pig...we kinda match!
But back to the matter at hand...Beacon's Closet. I still can't believe I actually got a full blown designer item for only $20.00. Who would've given that baby away?
I had to have it tailored, to which the seamstress kinda butchered the side seam leaving me with a lower left hip-and a higher, puckery right hip at the side seams. That's what I get for a $10 botched tailoring job, probably should've just put my fashion school skills to work and done it myself. But still...it's nothing I can't conceal, did you even notice the hips are a bit screwy before I told you??
If you're ever visiting NYC, please please please take the short trek out to Brooklyn (you know, the coolest borough in the city?). You won't regret a little trip to Beacon's Closet. It's a mecca of contemporary gently used clothing and vintage goodies galore. Don't even get me started on all the frocks I've come across in my 7 years as a NYer!
Actually, just hit me up whenever you're in town--I'll take you to Beacon's Closet myself...I'll even suck it up and venture to Williamsburg for you and your vintage scavenger-like tendancies...the Beacon's Closet in Wburg---HUGE! Huge beyond words, so make sure you set aside 2+hours, or else we'll never get thru every rack in that store.
So when you coming to visit???
If you're lucky...I might even take you to visit Rudy the pig.
