I had the chance to cruise around one of my favorite neighborhoods in all of NYC, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in none other than the great American car classic, a Chevy! The new Chevy Cruze to be exact. I’m more of a passenger seat sort of person, so Annie from Refinery 29 got behind the wheel and we explored the best of what Williamsburg had to offer vintage and thrift shopping wise. Driving is so much easier in Brooklyn than any other part of Manhattan, so it was nice to lean back and get a different view of the city from inside our Chevy. We went around town, exploring nooks and finding the best deals in town for outfits for girls on a budget. And because it’s Brooklyn, we can be sure find the most unique and statement-making pieces, so we won’t blend in with the crowd. The same goes for our Chevy. It’s always a standout car choice for a city girl!

Ferragamo has nailed the 70’s retro look. This statement pair of sunglasses is just what I was looking for this season. Bold, and extra large. Made for walking around the city streets on the way to your next gig, or an incognito weekend on Shelter Island. I feel every woman needs a little bit of glamour thrown into our everyday lives. For me, I find it in my accessories. Complete the look with a beautiful silk scarf from your most exotic of travels.
