The possibility of inexpensive vintage I might actually fit into? I’m so there. I’ve always been on the borderline of plus sizes at a size 12, but luckily, they mention on the website that there will be many things for size 12 and even smaller so an assortment of curvy girls will have endless options!
Then on Sunday, May 1st from 1-3pm, Lesley Kinzel and Marianne Kirby will be live taping their fantastic progressive fat politic podcast FAT CAST at Re/Dress, a premiere vintage and resale clothing boutique specializing in sizes 14 and up (vintage 10 + up). Re/Dress NYC is open 7 days a week: Sunday - Wednesday 12-7pm, Thursday - Saturday 12-9pm at 109 Boerum Place Brooklyn, NY 11201.
