Thrifting Tips from Industry Insiders at Fashion for Action

I chatted up some notable hosts and shoppers like stylist/vintage blogger Natalie Joos, Talk Stoop’s Cat Greenleaf, designer Derek Fabulous and Patricia Clarkson about their vintage secrets. And you can shop these designer deals all weekend long at the Chelsea Housing Works

See what they’re wearing down on the super hopping 6th Street, and then out at the local farmer’s market.

Miami Vice: Finding Galliano, Out of the Closet

Miami. Some go to laze on the beach. I go to dig through everyone’s second hand. Alright fine, it was raining! You got me. But I’m glad this indie roadtrip led me away from the shore, because I found some of my new favorite things, a Christian Dior jacket I (and John Galliano) died for, and the best of vintage in Miami.
