Brooklyn Royal - Our First Pop-Up Shop in NYC!

Dec 1, 2016 3 comments

And here I thought we were done with travel for the year. Nope!

Back to New York City we go (twice in one year!) for our very first, very special Pop Up Shop at Slapback in Brooklyn. This is a try-n-buy event with our Royal Vintage Classic 1940s Shoes, and is an opportunity for all you ladies of the NYC area to try on and walk out of the store with a pair of our reproduction 1940s shoes.

We've never done an event like this before, so I have to admit I'm really nervous! I packed up six 20 lb boxes of shoes earlier this week and sent them ahead. We'll have one of everything there - all seven 1940s designs/colors and one in every size (6 - 10 and 11). It's a big undertaking, but I'm excited!

I'm also way-too-excited about the vintage outfits I've packed for New York. I went a little splurgy at OverAttired over the Black Friday weekend and got a splendid tweed suit and a showstopping rayon and crepe dress, both original 1940s. The suit is for the day, naturally, but the colorblock dress is reserved for a very special trip to the Metropolitan Opera to see La bohème.

I feel in love with this dress and just had to have it. Here it is modeled by Terra. I'll be sure to take a few photos the night of the opera :-)
So if you're in the New York Area, please come by Slapback Saturday or Sunday to hang out, gab about vintage clothes, and shop. I hope to see you there!


  1. Good luck, and have a wonderful time at La Boheme! The Met Opera is a truly magical experience!

  2. This is so exciting! Wish I could make the trip to NYC but I know several vintage friends in the New England/New York area are thinking of going. Hope you have a great time!
    I took advantage of the great holiday deals at OverAttired too, though I was really good and bought for my husband!! ;)

  3. Congratulations! Wishing you the best of luck, and looking forward to seeing pictures from the Opera.
