On today's show, Kelly will talk about her background as a buyer for corporate fashion, the uniquely personal and poetic vision (literally!) that led to 27 Perry, and some of her own criteria for shopping used wares. Plus, a set list full of the latest from bands like Dr. Dog, Bleeding Rainbow, Young Rivals, Wild Yaks, and, of course, another Sufjan Christmas track! All that, plus your search for a pair of gently-worn Jimmy Choos is over: tune in to crack the code for first-rate fashion at second-hand prices!

Not only can New York residents take advantage of this gem, but Kaight has a webshop, too, making it ridiculously easy to be responsibly stylish. On today's show, Kate will talk about the concerns that led her to open Kaight, the criteria she uses to choose designers and labels, some of the changes she's seen in sustainable design since opening her doors, and one of the biggest challenges she's faced as a small business owner.
