Spring Cleaning? There’s Free Charity Pick-Ups In NYC!

Spring Cleaning by UsedYorkCity.com

Spring cleaning is high on my list of favorite things.  (Crazy?  Yeah, I know.  But nothing quite beats the feeling of an organized closet, right?!)  What’s perhaps NOT on my list of favorite things is the aftermath of a good closet cleanse: bagging and lugging all the giveaways downtown to the nearest Goodwill/SalvationArmy/charity of choice.  […]

UsedYorkCity was thrilled to be able to celebrate NYCFW with Bettie Page on the Bowery, where retro fashion is always timeless!  Their throwback pieces to the 1950′s remind me of flipping through photos of my grandparents during their newlywed days, (minus the pink hair!)  Unlike thrift store finds which are hit or miss depending on […]

New Prada On The Block
