New Brooklyn Based Vintage Clothing Shopping Site – Nifty Thrifty

Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

I love vintage clothes!  As a teenager, my parents entire basement was filled with bags and bags of treasured finds from my favorite vintage stores and my car was affectionately dubbed “the closet on wheels.”   It didn’t matter if clothes fit – I would tailor whatever I bought or simply tear it apart and use the pieces for some other project.  Because I currently live in Florida and vintage venue is limited, I couldn’t be more excited about online stores like Nifty Thrifty, a new Brooklyn based (my hometown) member-only vintage clothing site that just launched last week.  The site will curate collections of 50-100 vintage pieces organized into themed sales, such as ‘Weekend Fall Getaway’ or ‘Left Bank Looks’. The Brooklyn based company will initially focus on womenswear, with menswear and home goods soon to follow. At launch, the company will post two sales a week, then increase to a sale a day, eventually building up to multiple flash sales a day. This week’s theme sale starts on October 9th, at 11 am  and will be called  “Campus Cool”.  Pieces will include all-American collegiate inspired sportswear, with cute cardigans, letterman jackets, satchels, blazers and bows, by designers such as Marc Jacobs, Rag and Bone, Moschino, Chloe, Perry Ellis, Agnes B and Cacharel all available at prices that everyone can actually afford!  

By early next year, there will be an archive of 1,000 – 3,000 ‘discoverable’ pieces on the site, with an average retail price around $50.  Check out NiftyThrifty.com and make sure to like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter to stay up to date on their sales.

Glamour Live With Diet Coke

Diet Coke kicked off my favorite time off the year – NYFW – by taking over the streets of New York with a sampling program and Diet Coke mannequins on display.

Then Last night I went to their Glamour Live Party sponsored by Diet Coke to celebrate its stylish new look. I got to meet the gorgeous L’Wren Scott,  the winner of Diet Coke’s t-shirt design Gustavo Alonso (such a talented, sweet guy) and watch one of my favorite bands: The Joy Formidable. AMAZING!

Diet Coke’s New Look!

Two of my biggest passions in this world are fashion and a nice cold glass of Diet Coke (seriously, I am rarely seen without a hanger in one hand and a Diet Coke in the other!).  Well the stars have definitely aligned because not only is Fashion Week in September my favorite time of the year, but Diet is Coke is hitting the runway to re-introducie its sleek and modern cropped logo on its can in conjunction with NYFW (the can actually looks more like a fashionable accessory than a drink). The bold look will keep the fashionistas refreshed anywhere from airports, restaurants or even on the runway!  The can design first debuted as a seasonal design last fall but was brought back by popular demand.  Look for them in market starting September 1.  Check out the new look below and make sure to follow Diet Coke on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram (@Dietcoke) and Pinterest to stay up to date on all the upcoming fun for Fashion week.
