I met this girl Liz Power yesterday in her store Awoke Vintage that is situated at 132 N 5TH and Bedford in Williamsburg. She’s from Australia and has in the past year and a half or so moved here to Brooklyn and opened up this beautiful store in one of the most coveted locations in Brooklyn and if were talking vintage I would say that this location that she has bagged is one of the most sought after in NY. As a person, she manages to mix great levels of professionalism with friendliness which of course is a vital to the success of any small boutique sized retail outlet.

With regards to content, the store hits the nail on the head when it comes to shoes. Liz had gathered an amazing mix of all sorts from brogues, to flat points, to lace up boots and heels. Florals and pretty blouses are a plenty as are pastels and cute quirky jumpers, fit for the Zooey Deschanel in all of us.
Glasses: bought in Japan
Shirt: Awoke Vintage
In a place where Vintage stores are a dime a dozen, Awoke Vintage stands it’s ground solidly. It differs from all the Beacon’s Closets, Buffalo Exchanges and the likes. Yes it’s vintage but I cant help but get the feeling that it’s the stuff that belonged to princesses and iconic movie figures in earlier lives and not just some rags that the hipster down the road no longer wants to wear.
