While walking down Meserole, we noticed the Vintage Shaun Pop-Up shop and met shop owner / commercial fashion stylist / FIT teacher Shaunya Hartley, a Brooklyn born and raised, bad ass babe who had some unique fashion advice and great vintage to boot.
“I believe you should wear sequins for breakfast,” she told us in all seriousness then explained how once after she had just finished a dental cleaning she ran into an ex who thought she looked “fabulous,” and she swore it was the sequins that saved the day. Continue reading →
Your home could use some lovin’. Enter the latest pop-up shop, Home of the Brave, on 67th West St, #416 (and our HQ). The new store is run by Wolves Within owners, Max and Bethany Vogel, with careful selections by Brooklyn artisans. If Wolves Within is the ultimate dream closet, then Home of the Brave would be the dream home.
The pop-up shop will officially open this Thursday, March 6th.
On Saturday 3/8, venture over to Daddy’s (435 Graham Avenue) for a pop-up shop curated by Debbie Tuch, creator of the jewelry line Glitterlimes.

Michelle and Mary are both expecting their own little ones and felt the transition to an e-commerce shop was the best move for their families. Continue reading →
Winden Jewelry is off the chain. Greenpoint based designer Rebecca Mapes crafts pieces with delicate but tongue-in-cheek enthusiasms. Punchy diamond lips and tiny little ear studs, babe and sis 90s throwback name plate necklaces give a carefree and off-beat vibe. (Prices range from $55-$1,199).
I personally love Winden’s undertone for nostalgia and humor. Not to mention, most of the jewelry is on the smaller scale, which is perfect for layering pieces or giving a hint of subtle flash. Continue reading →
