Summer, summer, summertime! Just a few months ago I was on vacation in Panama basking in the glorious sunlight hoping it would erase all of my Winter blues and as I laid there I couldn't help but hope NYC would warm up soon. We had a long winter but fast forward to today and we're all glowing in the big apple; ready for swimsuit season!  For me swim-season usually means it's time to pull out my summer turbans, tassels and tropical printed pieces.

If you're like me, you could spend most of your days vintage treasure-hunting but that takes time and I often don't have much time with my packed agenda. Visiting shops in person can be quite challenging, so hows vintage-lover survive? Have no fear! I'm making vintage shopping a bit easier for those with little time or those not inclined to hunt.
