Thrift and the City Tour

Thift and the City from Monroe Steele on Vimeo.

I had my first Thrift and the City Shopping Tour this past weekend with a few of the fashion bloggers from the NYC Fashion Bloggers Meetup Group.
We had an amazing time and shopped till we dropped. After a nice blogger breakfast at Au Bon Pain our driver picked us up and we were off to get our shop on!
 It was great having a large car too because we filled that trunk up with clothes and paintings and shoes pretty quick!

Vintage YSL tailored pants...they looked amazing on Janique!
Cynthia got an amazing necklace! Stunning!
We stumbled onto a flea market and decided to hop out of the car and take a look!

Found this amazing Club Monaco Sequin and feather dress for $19.99 Fashion STEELE!!!!

Overall the first Thrift and the City Shopping Tour went over great! It was super fun and I found a lot of great deals and so did everyone else. Here are some of my buys from the trip.

Cool black and white artwork: $5
Vintage 1950's faux fur handbag $48
Gold Necklace Bib $5
Wooden Necklace $8
Vintage Gold Earrings: $40
Fashion STEELE'S all around!

These vintage earrings were definitely my favorite purchase!
I can say that the Thrift and the City tours are off to a great start!
 Some of the stores are even offering tour members 10% STEELE!!!!!
 We hit up 6 stores and a flea market in 4 hours flat! These girls know how to shop!
I will be hosting them twice a month and also do one-on-ones as well as groups of 3-5 people. So check it out if you are a thriftaholic like myself!
