NOW OPEN: Oona's Outpost

Oona's outpost is an exciting new vintage store located in historic Inman Square, often referred to as the "Little Williamsburg" of Cambridge. This location is a bohemian offshoot of their flagship store Oona's Experienced Clothing, which has been in Harvard Square since the heyday of funky dressing. Oona’s Experienced Clothing specializes in timeless vintage fashions from the 1930s to the 1980s, and has long been a local hot spot, beloved for its eccentric stock and low prices. One of the things I miss most about living in New York is spending hours and hours frolicking around all of the amazing thrift stores in Brooklyn and Manhattan in search of the most unique vintage pieces. I finally had the chance to check out Oona's Outpost a few weeks ago and I'm obsessed! There is a great variety of all-American day wear, with a huge wall of boots, a swath of dresses, accessories, and lots of men's and women's separates displayed amongst cool antique lamps and rugs, and furniture. It's definitely added to my list of favorite thrift stores in Boston for hidden gems.

Spirited Magazine "Noir Generation" at Yes. Oui. Si

Last Saturday I attended the Spirited Magazine "Noir Generation" Issue V live magazine installation by spirited creatives at Yes. Oui. Si. gallery in Boston. For those who aren't familiar Spirited Magazine is an independent Magazine started by visual artist and stylist Amanda Antunes. It's inspired by the art of collaboration, and combines the best of artistic acumen with the fundamentals of community. The magazine is highly conceptual and born from the necessity to create productive outlets for exploring textures and depths. Contributors, who include photographers, stylists, musicians, visual artists, filmmakers, graphic designers, and writers, are challenged to stretch this idea to its limits, explore its surfaces and crevices. The "Noir Generation" issue is available for sale online, Lorem Ipsum bookstore, Porter Square books, Grolier Poetry bookstore, and Oona's Experienced Clothing in Harvard Square.
