Last night someone in Greenpoint charmed the pants off us.
The culprit: Melissa Blumberg, proprietor of Seven Wonders Vintage. Her just-opened shop is the antithesis of overpriced (nothing more than $100) and overrun (one piece out, one in).
Blumberg hunts at upstate estate sales and in her native Florida for Boca sundresses, cropped tanks, and cheeky sweaters. She also stocks early ’70s garb — minus the poly — preppy tees, and animal prints (horses, fish, birds).
A few designers (Valentino, Coach) make the cut, as well as corduroy blazers, pearl money clips, and silk ties for dudes.
The atmosphere is sunny, with thick-cut pine floors, cacti, industrial pipe racks, and a hilarious retro family portrait in the dressing room. Brogues line the walls; tooled-leather purses, Mexican turquoise and silver, and eclectic jewelry (a Parisian beaded seagull necklace) sit atop an antique wood table.
DailyCandy readers are invited for wine this evening. Don’t be surprised if you drop your skirt.
