Shop: The Saturday Flea Market and Beacon's Closet

The Saturday flea market and Beacon's Closet-- the Bushwick location, because it always has the most vintage dresses, which are pretty much my everyday uniform. I also love the farmer's market in Union Square.

Dance: Baby's All Right

I DJ here fairly often, but I've also been known to drink a bunch of wine and slow-dance with my dude in the middle of a party.

Manhattan Inn for Grace Kelleys, which are a strange and amazing cocktail made with champagne, liquors and lemon peel.

Take a guyfriend: Black Swan

The last time I had to take a dude friend somewhere we ended up at the Black Swan for way-too-strong beers.
