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.
Necklaces…. Hair: ghostgum (made by friend)

See Liz in action!
Hey!! May Christ be Merry … Merry Merry Christmas! Christmas is definitely my favourite time of year..I know a lot of people say this…but no…I like it more…no I do…no I know I like it the most…like the best. Like I’m soooo much better at liking Christmas than you are ;)This is my beautiful friend Katie. No silly Im not talking about myself in the first person….her name’s katie too…OMG…cuz it’s such a rare name. Thanks MOM.
Well anyway…Katie put on this lovely party. She’s quite the little home maker…puts the rest of us females to shame. Not that I’ll ever be a home maker …or ever want to be at that. Sorry Boys.
Rudolph cookies….way less calories than normal cookies. Obviously because they’re Christmas Cookies! yum yum yum. I’d be lying if I said I ate them though. They’re too pretty for that!
OOOOH take a photo when were not looking. Do it do it do it… I look so much better when I’m not posing. bahah if joke was king this would be it.More delicious foo-ooood get in ma belly! check out the smores katie made beteween 21h00 and 23h00 in the pic. yes sir yes sir, speak in code. I got to eat real life smores. Can you believe it.
This Halloween was officially the best one yet. Why you may ask? Well for various different reasons but the main one being because I’m in NYC baby!! I’m so lucky to have made amazing friends who are always on for some fun :) The creativity of some people in this place is out of control. Probably largely due to the fact that I live in Williamsburg which is bursting with artsy folk who like to show off. (Meant in a nice way of course.)
The coolest outfit I’ve seen in a long time…this girl is a carrot….a carrot I tell you. That’s next year sorted so. By then enough time will have gone by so that I can claim the idea as my own.
What dashing fellows
