Thrift Score!


Call us crazy (others have), but sometimes our favorite thrift stores call out to us. Not in like a voices-in-our-head kind of way but just an inkling that we NEED to get there TODAY. One memorable time, we ended up with a pirate’s booty of vintage Gucci belts for $1.99 each when we listened to our thrifter’s intuition.

Today was one of those days, so we hightailed it to the Upper East Side charity shop row, aka Third Avenue between 84th Street and 77th Street. Lo and behold, a fabulous pair of Peal & Co. for Brooks Brothers black velvet slippers with little fox heads embroidered in metallic silk thread. Just $40! We’re not ashamed to admit that we were hyperventilating a little bit.

We’ll be sporting them this fall with beaten jeans, a button down shirt, bowtie and wool sweater. Yes, as a matter of fact, we do like to look like a mannequin in the Polo store window.

Black Fleece Collection by Thom Browne


Brooks Brothers is about to unveil their new Black Fleece collection, created by designer-of-the-moment Thom Browne. We’re dying to see how Browne’s sometimes cartoonish designs work for Brooks Brothers.
