Stripes on Whitney Avenue

Edit - The Haven Collective is now Vintanthromodern!

This week I'm collaborating with the New Haven based vintage shop The Haven Collective. I've borrowed some of my favorite pieces and photographed them throughout the city of New Haven. Be sure and check out Monday'sTuesday'sWednesday's, and Thursday's posts as well!

To finish up this collaboration, I have a little interview with the owner of The Haven Collective, Melissa Gonzales. I hope you've enjoyed the posts this week, and I hope all of my local Connecticut readers have a chance to stop by 938 State Street in New Haven.

Favorite items currently in The Haven Collective
Definitely shoes - we have so many great spring and summer styles.  From colorblocked pumps to strappy sandals - we have the perfect finishing touch for just about any outfit!

Best the about owning the shop
 Getting to meet my customers face to face.  Everyone who comes into the shop gushes about how great it is and I love hearing that feedback!

Currently on my wishlist
Swedish Hasbeens clogs - any style.  I've had a few in the shop - but never in MY size.

Favorite to season to shop for
Definitely fall - I love fall colors and the necessity of  of layers means that you can mix and match prints, solids, and textures to create the perfect style.  Also - boots - fall is perfect for boots!

BEST pizza in New Haven
Da Legna - any pie, any time!

  1. The dress! wow - I absolutely love it - are you keeping it ?

  2. I love your interview questions - four about fashion and style, one about pizza. You're a girl after my own heart ;) Ad I must say, I think you're finishing off this collaboration with my favourite look yet. (Although I'm still dreaming about that sheer crocheted top.) I love the drop waist on this dress - they don't work on everyone but the style suits you really well and gives a beautiful vintage vibe while remaining modern enough that you don't look like you're dressed for a costume party (which, I admit, is always what makes me hesitate before buying vintage clothes!)

  3. I have very much enjoyed your collaboration this week! This last look is so perfect and seems so you! Nautical and cute! Love the necklace!

  4. I love the stripes and pleats on the skirt of that dress! The hat and straw bag make it a great kick-off to Memorial Weekend look :) Enjoy your long weekend!

  5. that dress is so perfectly Summer! Would be great for Memorial Day! :D
    Such a fun week of posts!

  6. I'm just catching up on your series with The Haven Collective and I love it! New Haven will always have a special place in my heart, so it's so fun to see it again through your pictures. And I love the outfits too! :)

  7. Love the bottom part of this dress, the colors are so fun!

  8. Wow...this skirt is gorgeous!!! ^_^ Absolutely in lovee with the way you styled minimalistic, and gorgeous at the same time!! Lovee it! <3

  9. I know most people think that they'd want to live in California because of the weather but I think your area is way prettier! Too bad I don't live in the area because this shop seems super cute!
