“I’ll Wear Your Grandma’s clothes, I’ll look incredible.”

4 Apr

 

I LOVE paying barely anything for my clothes. When a co worker tells me theres a sale at H&M, I ask “What kind of sale?” If they say items are about $20, I don’t consider that a sale. That’s not a sale for me. Call me cheap, I don’t care. Clothes shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. One of the reasons that I love vintage clothing is because its unique and has lasted for so long and is durable, plus you can find amazing deals for vintage at Goodwills and other shops. Believe me I indulge once in a while. I have a stupid expensive pair of True Religions but they’re the only jeans I actually like to wear. I also have a few pairs of Michael Kors shoes.  It’s only natural that Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop” is my self proclaimed theme song. My new thing is taking a picture of what I have on that day, breaking down the price and where I got it then instagraming it

**Danny Screams in Williamsburg Brooklyn this WEEKEND June 23/24**

21 Jun

For the past couple of days its been super hot in NYC. It’s about 90 degrees today. I can’t complain though because when its cold here its FREEZING!!

I’ve been scouring different places to find you guys some of the coolest vintage, bags, jewelry

 and thrift  around.  My favorite items are the chain headbands, these gorgeous rings that look like a mask. Everywhere I go someone asked me where I got it. A girl in the Subway offered to buy it right of my finger! Theres a fabulous super tight vintage Betsey Johnson yellow dress and lots of lacy girlie things. Everythings affordable!

This Sunday, June 24, I’ll be selling all the goods at

DANNY SCREAMS POP UP STORE in Williamsburg, Brooklyn
