Festival Collection for Lotus Vintage

It's almost that time again!  We paired up with one of our favorite bohemian vintage sellers, Lotus Vintage to bring you a collection of festival worthy attire. Head on over to the Etsy shop for the full selection!

We know you're going to be hot and covered in dirt, but we want to help you be comfortable without sacrificing style.  

Breezy maxis are ideal for lounging in the grass when you need a break. 

Southwestern vibes 

For those of you who are in cold weather climates: STAY STRONG!  We're all getting tired and cranky but spring is coming.  Lightweight materials and bright, bold colors are on their way.  


DRV Capsule Collection for Mini Penny Blog

Sorry, this baby already sold, but how awesome and meta?!?! Flannel shirt print on a flannel shirt.     

As you may have noticed, we've been pulling capsule collections for some of our favorite online babes.  I'm sure many of you are no stranger to Mini Penny Blog.  I haven't touched my own hair in any sort of interesting way for over a decade, so I have a very special place in my heart for the ladies who change their hair as often as their (insert garment, boyfriend, etc). 

Jessie's hair is a thing of wonder.  It often steals the show, so I chose some more toned down pieces that fit her "punk meets glam" style but allowed her locks to be the main accessory.  You can shop the looks at her Etsy store now! 

Announcing: Weekly Warehouse Sales

Ok, folks.  We've just launched our weekly sales.  So, for one week only, we will choose a category to mark down.  The appropriate bin will be marked "SALE BIN" to make it easy for you to find.  The category will change every week.  Popular categories will be put into the rotation more frequently.  Please don't ask for discounts from sales from previous weeks because that's annoying and we want this to be fun.
We don't like bombarding social media feeds with constant reminders, so keep your eye out for images like these to announce the sale for the week.  On Instagram we will use the hashtag #drvweeklysale to make it easier for you to pull it up. 

We are open to the public Tuesdays 3 - 7 pm and Sundays 12 - 6 pm.  We're at 233 Norman Ave in Greenpoint.  Wholesale clients, please call or email for an appointment. 

Our capsule collection for Noir Ohio

It all started with a social media crush.  I've followed Noir Ohio for years, and I guess I've always had fantasies of dressing her.  She has this way of making absolutely everything look incredible.  And then one day I saw her sporting the most basic black jumpsuit in a way that made it look like what Prince's sexiest song would look like if it were an article of clothing.  And I knew.  I had to do a collection with her.  So I pulled some pieces that I knew she would give the justice they deserved and viola - our capsule collection for Noir Ohio. 

New items will be added daily, so make sure to keep an eye on her shop.  

Here are some of my personal favorites:

Honored to be chosen as one of Refinery29's Superstars of Vintage!!

Why did you move to New York from Portland?
"I was offered a job wholesaling vintage out of a factory in Brooklyn. I moved to Greenpoint in 2006 and immediately fell in love. New York is inspiring because it attracts the innovative and the brave."

What is your vintage shopping strategy?
"I rarely hunt with something in mind. When I shop for vintage I just wait until the right piece appears. I’m usually drawn to things that are a little different or are beautiful quality. When working, my clothes come to me about 2,000 pounds at a time, so I have fun making collections for my clients. I love attacking a giant pile and separating it into categories that make sense and look great together on a rack."

What is the most treasured vintage item in your home?
"It’s a little silly, but the first thing that comes to mind is an antique iron horse door stop. I grew up behind a horse ranch and have always had a special place in my heart for all things equestrian. This kind of stuff sells really well so when I found it, I remember realizing that it would be okay if I kept a few nice things for myself."

Is there anyone in the vintage industry you look up to?
"Laura Wills from Screaming Mimis has been a huge inspiration for me. Her styling has always been visionary, and she was successful in the industry decades before vintage was a mainstream trend."

Any words of wisdom from your years in the industry?
"Start at the bottom because it’s easier to understand all aspects of your business if you work your way up. Don’t be fooled by the over-reported “glamorous” side of fashion — running a business is hard work and requires complete dedication. There will always be people who have something to say about you or your work, especially if you have any sort of online presence, so learn to distinguish between unnecessary negativity and constructive criticism."
