Content creator and second-hand shop owner
Hometown: Queens, N.Y.
Chelsea Henriquez is a New York City-based content creator and second-hand shop owner. Henriquez encourages her followers to build their wardrobes creatively and sustainably while promoting a “fun first” ideal when it comes to personal style. Additionally, she shares tips on creativity through self-expression and photography via her ever-growing social channels. In 2020, Henriquez started sharing her thrift finds with her audience, leading to the opening of her very own second-hand shop, aptly named Shop as of Late. Since Henriquez knows how overwhelming thrifting can be, she hopes her tips can help viewers cut through the noise in order to make shopping for those must-have, recycled pieces a more accessible experience for everyone.
