Women who appreciate a color-coordinated closet (guilty!) will love Mirth Vintage, as the store—which hawks mostly monochrome, timeless duds—is handily organized by hue. At the Greenpoint shop, sift the racks for wares and accessories (bags, shoes, belts and some jewelry) from the early 20th century to the early aughts.
Some of the best (and, graciously, cheapest) clothing stores in NYC happen to be vintage stores. Personally, we think shopping vintage is always a good idea. For one, shopping secondhand helps the planet by reducing excess waste, but it also allows you to scoop up unique duds no one else has. Can’t afford $400 Chanel pumps or high-end retro clothes? No biggie: New York has a ton of economical options to make your wardrome dreams come to true. After making a profit by selling any outdated duds at thrift stores or consignment shops , go back to these prime vintage stores, snag a few unique throwbacks and style an outfit that will make you feel like a million bucks (but for way less).
