‘N’s Nomads: #87DaysofVintage with Kyleigh Kühn

You may recognize those piercing eyes from a fashion campaign or magazine but upon first meeting Kyleigh, I can guarantee you’ll walk away feeling one thing: happy. That genuinely happy feeling that makes you think, “Wow, some people are pretty awesome.” Whether it’s a late night dance party where she’s breaking it down Cali-style or an event raising awareness for one of her philanthropic endeavors, Kyleigh is in a perpetual state of paying it forward. Her drive to do good is contagious. In a special edition of ’N’s Nomads, in  honor of Kyleigh’s birthday, I caught up with her about her latest campaign, #87daysofvintage. ’N: Where are you from?

Shop Local Saturdays – Brooklyn Flea!

On Saturdays from 10am – 5pm it’s in Fort Greene at 176 Lafayette and on Sundays it’s in Williamsburg at 50 Kent Ave. With 100 flea vendors and 30 food vendors at it’s peak, this is a great way to spend a Saturday.

Spring Saturdays in Brooklyn – Salvatore & Sneakers

With the sun shining and the temps in the 70s, I accompanied my friend Jennifer to Brooklyn Flea to pick out a few things for her new apartment. More on that later, in the meantime, I’m pretty pumped I got to break out my Salvatore Ferragamo oldie but goodie for the first time this year. In an extreme mix of high & low, I paired them with H&M sneakers and had some BK fun. Don’t mind the bandaid: I took a small tumble this week, eager for my favorite Indian restaurant. Bare legs, fringe and sneakers! Tis the season. Get my look with some picks below!
