Anyone who's seen me struggling my way through the studio door at 567 Broadway can confirm that I always have a suitcase, armful of bags or a big basket with me. That's because it's part of a routine that I find works very well for me, and I want to begin sharing it with you on the blog. Basically, I shop until I have a enough great vintage to pack up in my baskets. When they're full, I know it's time for an update. It also gets me to clean out my laundry room, the official storage place for vintage awaiting the basket.

The best part of this routine is bringing together all the finds for that week or two, and folding them nicely in the basket. I get to re-appreciate and sort my favorites. As rituals go, this is a great one. In the past, I've taken pictures of some of these combinations because they looks so great lying together, a mix of pattern, color and texture. Before I know it, one of all of these pieces have found new homes. By taking record of them before they are put up for sale, I take a little memento to keep with me forever.
