Vintage and Thrift: Tracy Chambers Vintage (Vintage from Paris)

Can you believe it has been two years since I came across one of Brooklyn's hidden gems, Tracy Chambers Vintage?! When ever I visit my parents in New York, I feel as if my trip is not complete without a visit to Tracy Chambers Vintage.  Helen Nurse, the owner recently went to Paris this summer and scored some amazing pieces for her boutique.  Let me tell you, I was in vintage heaven during my recent visit. Helen scored some awesome pieces while in Paris. Every piece was unique and fabulous!  I scored one of her Paris finds.  Check out this dress.  It's just perfect for me! The colors, so fall, so Diana Ross as Tracy Chambers in Mahogany.  Check out how I made this fabulous vintage dress from Paris into a great career dress. Perfect for a women in the office.

2014 Bloggers In Fashion and Beauty Awards (BFABAWARDS) - Best Thrift Style Nominee

Sunday, October 12, 2014 was the big evening put together by Tastemaker Magazine for the celebration and appreciation of bloggers.   An event well done indeed! I enjoyed every moment. Although I did not win the award but the fact that I was nominated was an achievement in itself.  I love what I do and its a joy sharing my thrift style with you all. 

My husband and my son were there to cheer me. That was one of the most highlights of the evening for me.  Having the two most handsome men in the room standing on each side of me made me feel like a queen.  Love my team! 

Check out a few of the photos taken by my son, the amazing photographer!
