An organization that I work for is holding a $2 Clothing Sale this weekend, in support of our programming—theatre opportunities for artists who are 21 and under. The Paprika $2 Clothing Sale is a great way for you to get some new and/or vintage pieces for only $2 a piece. Last time, I spent like $50 because there was so much great stuff. Mens, womens, kids… we take it all! See this outfit (created from finds from the last sale): $8 Outfit.
Hey I've been following your blog for a while and I just wanted to say I really appreciate your style. I like the outfits and the coherence that goes along with them. I'm looking into getting some new shoes. Since you're doing May Days I figured you'd be a great person to ask. I'm looking into either getting a pair of hiking/combat boots or chukkas like desert boots. What do you think is more versatile?
Great question. As much as I love the whole hiking/combat boot trend that’s going on right now, I really feel like it’s a trend. As in, something that will only be “in style” for a while. That said, I support you going against the grain if you really want to hold on to those boots for the next few seasons. However, when it comes to versatility, there is nothing better than a good pair of simple desert boots. It is rare to find shoes that are equally good with both shorts and pants, and a well-chosen pair of desert boots do just that. Go forth and conquer my friend, and send me a picture of what you choose. firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m heading to NYC tomorrow for four days and I need leads on good places to shop for cheap and/or vintage stuff. Obviously I’ll be stopping in at Uniqlo and Topman and J.Crew. But vintage suggestions or other ideas are welcome. I’m looking to build up my spring/summer wardrobe. Where should I go?
Send an email to email@example.com or send me a tumblr msg…
P.S. Don’t worry. May Days will continue. I’ve been working ahead of the curve so that I can ensure a new pair of shoes everyday.
“Yes, that’s how it happens, America. One day your teenage son is banging the head cheerleader. The next, he hears a few bars of Chris Colfer’s seductive warbling, and wham! Suddenly he’s “thirsty” for that particular “brand.” Of penis. Homosexuality – it’s exactly like walking past a Cinnabon.”—Mary Elizabeth Williams (Submitted by geekingermany)
I try to keep it to style posts only, but given what’s happening in Tennessee right now, I thought I’d share this.
Dear daily haberdashery,
First just wanted to commend you on the name. I love the word haberdashery, and i'm sad that its been lost among our generation. As far as your blog, I love it, it's great. You seem sincere and your style seems really true.
I was willing if you could check out my blog
It's kind of a field manual for stylish guys.

I’m still not sure why my approval would mean much to you, but I did check out the blog, and it’s pretty nice. I bet you’ve got a mad following up in there… so congrats. The internets is yours… or something like that.
Either way, the comments are always appreciated, and I think you’ve got something awesome going on.
So I’ve put a few challenges to myself throughout this blogging experience—wearing white pants in the winter, wearing pink pants at all, bow-tie-ing it up. However, May is going to usher in a whole new kind of challenge. 30 days and thirty pairs of shoes. My roommates have long-lamented my shoe obsession since it fills our hallways with multiple pairs in many colours. Let’s just say it’s a problem. For realz.
But I decided that if I’m going to own so many pairs of shoes, then I needed to make use of them. Hence—May Days. I will be wearing a different pair of shoes for everyday in May. Get excited. I know that I am.
This is my call for submissions. If you are interested in joining me for May Days, simple send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Consider the challenge.
