If you read my blog, you'd know I have a major thing for vintage. I grew up thrifting and mixing in second-hand wares with modern items from my closet. Left to my own devices, trips to the thrift store were successful. But to find truly unique and rare pieces, sometimes you need some help. That's where Chapel NYC comes in.
Living in New York City, there's an abundance of quality vintage stores, but none specializes in vintage tees like Chapel. I first grew familiar with the shop during a pop-up event and immediately fell in love with the destroyed rock 'n roll shirt selection from the likes of The Cramps to The Beatles, and much more.
Here I'm wearing a 1981 Rolling Stones tee with a simple circle skirt and a pair of brogues. Can we talk about how cool the dragon on the front of the T-shirt is? I'm also having a moment for raglan tees lately, so this was the perfect pick for me.
Lucky for you, Chapel is hosting another pop-up event that you'd be crazy to miss. To get in on the ultra-soft cotton action, visit 52 Kenmare Street during September 4 to 14 from 12 to 9 p.m. For more information, visit Chapel’s Facebook page.
