Phashionista: Back On The State Side

· Mrs. Pleasant has returned. After some time in Brooklyn, Philly native Emily Amarnick is back full of inspiration with a new collection of vintage pieces. As a fashion stylist and artist, she provides quality, moderately priced one of a kind vintage and vintage-inspired clothing, accessories, house wares and handmade cards at her site mpVintage. Amarnick also does personal shopping. Tell Mrs. Pleasant what you want and she’ll hit up thrift stores, flea markets and stoop sales to find it for you. Just another way to make lazy shoppers lazier. Seriously, whatever you want. Even if it is a dress with a bunch of tampons attached to it. Check out the video to the right for a preview of her selections.
· If you’re ugly and wasting time trying to fix it, Daneen can help you. The self-proclaimed beauty buff, cosmetics connoisseur, and makeup master of Philly tests beauty products to save you time and money on her blog, Spoiled Pretty. There are also giveaways, trends, and sales deals. [Philly Mag]

    Dear Phasionista,

    Every time I pass the 2nd hand/thift store on 20th st. slightly north of Spring Garden(near both laundry places) I always think of grabbing their business card/website address to pass it along to you. The window displays always seem sorta cool and retro (ie, good quality clothing from the heydays of maternal lineage).

    Regards,
