Yesterday morning I slowly woke up realizing the sun was finally shining again after the previous days grey skies and showers. What a perfect day for heading to Williamsburg and do some vintage shopping! I left my hotel in the Meatpacking District and after a quick breakfast at Le Pain Quotidian I was as ready as I could be for a day of shopping.
I took the subway from 14th Street over to Graham Avenue, Brooklyn.
There, at 771 Metropolitan Avenue was Atlantis Attic – a vintage warehouse that I’ve been so excited to check out!
At first I was completely overwhelmed, it was just so much clothes! But after some time I got into it and started digging, casue you really need to dig in this place! There was some really great vintage pieces, and I liked the fact that there was nothing like last years J.Crew and H&M dresses, this was real old treasures.
This particular dress above didn’t fit me but I came out with an oriental kaftan, two 70′s dresses, a poncho, four belts, a perfect 70′s corduroy skirt and some kind of green sequined long sleeved top from the 80′s. I was more than happy with my finds and I can promise you I’ll show them to you soon.
Then I took the subway to Bedford Av. and decided it was time for lunch. I headed to Ella Café – my favorite. After a steady lunch I stayed with a coffee and wrote big ideas and plans in a small red notebook that I always like to carry in my purse.
After my long lunch I went over to Beacon’s Closet – my favorite vintage store!
They had some great jackets!!
I loved this green coat, it had a belt in the waist that this photo doesn’t show – unfortunately the sleeves were about 2 inches too short…
I only came out with two things from Beacon’s Closet. These two 70′s pieces I got (one a maxi skirt and one a long sleeved green maxi dress) were completely like a pure boho dream! It was a great vintage safari indeed!!
