»· Local Jaunt : Suite Orchard ·«

Another hidden gem in my Lower East Side oasis is the adorably decorated boutique, Suite Orchard. Although its walls are cute and girly with their pink, white and grey stripes, the merchandise is far from dainty. Filled with some of the most covetable designers like Alexander Wang, Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, Lover (one of my personal favorites!), and Twenty Seven Names, this little corner shop stocks its racks with modern, experimental pieces for the fashionably daring and curious. While colorful clothing is kept to a minimum, the neutral palettes of blacks, whites and greys make for an interesting assortment of statement pieces that are simultaneously versatile and everyday appropriate.

»· Local Jaunt : Daha Vintage ·«

July 21, 2011

After receiving so many emails about where I shop, eat, drink, sleep, etc. in NYC I thought I’d add a new category to my blog called Local Jaunts, where I document and share some of my favorite places to do the aforementioned things.

First on the list is Daha Vintage, an adorable vintage shop around the corner from me that I frequent on a weekly basis. The store is filled with endless amounts of goodies from vintage boots to leather satchels to the most colorful dresses in all kinds of silhouettes and lengths. There aren’t a ton of designer names on the racks, but I’ve been lucky enough to find some amazing vintage Diane von Furstenburg dresses, an Emporio Armani shirt and a Pucci skirt that I still regret not buying.

Just like with any kind of vintage shopping, the key to Daha is to go in with an open mind and the patience to sift through the racks. Another key to Daha? Many of their dresses are on the longer side of the spectrum, but that’s nothing a little tailoring can’t fix. Vintage dresses are some of the easiest pieces to get tailored so just because it doesn’t fit in the store doesn’t mean you can’t make it work for you!
