Charlotte Kemp Muhl's NYC Shopping Diary

Unearthly beautiful, charmingly irreverent, lyrically blessed, oh, and and dating rock royalty—all are ways of describing model-turned-musician Charlotte Kemp Muhl. While she's not often in one city (let alone country) for any discernible length of time, we had the distinct pleasure to nab some one-on-one time with the fresh faced ingenue, with an afternoon browse-fest—the lovely New York lady took us to her top three spots for buying the unique (mainly vintage) clothes and accessories that have made her a true style star; Not many people can mix Victorian with a necklace made from raccoon penis-bone, now can they? As we handled taxidermy eye balls at the Evolution Store and sifted through 200-year-old dresses at Exquisite Costume, the 23 year old girl, who now spends less time behind the camera and more time singing with boyfriend Sean Lennon in their band, The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, talked sex, fashion, and he future. Some of her musings included her love of vintage shoes, an obsession that's kinda hard to sate with her "giant feet," or, on spying a velvet, military coat, acknowledging that Lennon would be fearful to give too great a nod to the "whole Sergeant Pepper thing." Peep the amazing, sexy and sensual photos byAltamira NYC's Craig Arend, as we galavanted around SoHo, bags (slowly accumulating) in hand—and dont forgot to read the complete interview with the stunning songstress...she starts talking penis before you know it.

Here are three of Muhl's favorite NYC shopping go-tos:

1. Exquisite Costume: "This is where I'll come to spend all the money I've made in a year…I'll just buy out the whole place because they have the most amazing clothes. It's like a one-stop shop."
Exquisite Costume, 377 Broome Street (between Mulberry and Mott streets); 212-966-4142.

2. Evolution Store: "Evolution for accessories, that's where I got this taxidermy-ed [sic] eye ring, it's actually the eyes they use in taxidermy."
Evolution Store, 120 Spring Street (between Greene and Mercer streets); 212-343-1114.

3. Geminola: "The [last] place [is] Geminola, [she] is my friend. She reworks vintage into new things. It's kind of like Imitation of Christ, but it has a different style. She dyes them in really pretty colors and re-cuts them…it's funny, the things here last really long, because they're made in a time when things really are made to last."
Geminola, 41 Perry Street, #1, (between West 4th Street and Waverly Place); 212-675-1994.
