Fashioned in fringe with a camera on her arm, style blogger and vintage queen Nicole Alyse meets us in Greenwich Village for some rack-scouring at our local thrift shop. Make no mistake though, her style is hardly Macklemore. An OG social media maven (at it since the Myspace days!) and owner of cool girl-favorite, American Gypsy Vintage, Nicole has a fine-tuned eye when it comes to finding forgotten treasures. But the Brooklyn-vibin' girl-about-town can also throw back a drink or two - especially if there's whiskey in her glass. Click through to find out her night out essentials and her secrets to giving vintage pieces new life.
