It’s kinda hard to imagine that we’ll be wearing winter coats anytime soon, considering that it feels more like late August than almost-Halloween right now. Don’t be fooled, though–winter’s looming. Thankfully, there are ways to ease the shock and pain of the Ice Betch’s arrival, and not all of them involve a bottle of vodka and a death wish.

Actually, please don’t die. How could you possibly grip one of the super cool “statement coats” from the Maevan Vintage pop-up shop (coming to Greenpoint November 4 through 30) if you’re dead?

Shopping: Bowery Mission Benefit / L.E.S. Amis

unnamed

For once, you can buy pretty things for yourself and feel 100 percent certain in the aftermath that you’re not just a consumerist dweeb, you’re also someone who cares about the homelessness crisis in New York City. All proceeds made at this pop-up shopping event go The Bowery Mission, which depends enormously on donations and volunteers to help them feed the hundreds of thousands of men, women, and kids they feed each year (not to mention the tens of thousands of people the charity provides with shelter, clothing, and other kinds of essential services). You can find all sorts of amazing stuff at the event– it’s all donated vintage, designer, and vintage designer, all of which are recycled and priced affordably. But even if you’re not so sure a price tag is doable, the organizers say they’re “always up for a barter. Follow the pop-up on Instagram @LESamisNYC .

The Vintage Twin NYC Pop-Up Shop

unnamed (15)Morgan and Samantha Elias, the titular twins who operate this roving vintage shop, usually pop up in the slim space at 355A Bowery, but this time they’re slipping into something a little more comfortable. “It’s going to look like we took over a vacated Gap store,” Morgan promises of their larger space on West 14th Street. But don’t expect plain-Jane, off-the-rack designs: The Eliases buy ’60s-to-’90s pieces from estate sales and then adapt them by, say, turning a gown into a short skirt, or sewing a section of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles bedsheets onto a denim jacket. Plus, we’re told a “jean-ius” will be on hand at a “denim bar” to size each customer for the perfect fit of Levi 501s or Wranglers.
