This week I wanted to do something a little funky and festive. I bought this blazer at a thrift store in Harajuku, Japan; I love the colors and the linen material. The bright colors are perfect for the fun and cheery holiday season (Cynicism at best). It’s the most
wonderful expensive time of the year and I’m not into all the holiday hype. I don’t think Christmas gifts have to be expensive, they should be thoughtful. If you agree check out my top three consignment/ thrift stores in New York: 1. Tokio 7 2. Dear: Rivington + 3. Screaming Mimi’s This is a great way to do some stylish shopping without going over your budget. While shopping I would look for three things: style, quality and functionality. A lot of these consignment/ thrift stores have affordable items at great prices but they would only be fit for Lady Gaga’s closet (haha). Be practical & Be stylish.
I know that a popular gift this season will be the iPhone 4s. I bought this Michael Kors iPhone clutch recently, its dope because it’s a clutch you can throw in your bag or wear to the club. It holds my iPhone, credit cards, and money. This is an example of a thoughtful gift that’s worth the price (Under $100). You can get it from The Michael Kors store or online … I would suggest getting it from Apple same price & free shipping.
And finally… Let’s talk about what I’ve been listening to lately . Kid Sister just released her four-track EP Kiss & Tell. The EP features one free track “Mickey” which you can download below. The Kiss & Tell EP goes perfectly with my funky festive mood. It features verses from Riff Raff and Fool’s Gold’s Danny Brown, and production from Nadastrom and Scoop Deville. My faves are Mickey (Free Track) and Hide & Seek. Listen to the Kiss & Tell EP below and you can purchase the entire EP via Itunes.
