Hello There,

I am Sonya, also known as Sixteenstone.

Chicago born, I’ve been living here in Brooklyn, NY for the past 8 years. As I’ve also worked various freelance positions in the fashion industry in NYC, I primarily make my living as an actress, print model, and vintage dealer. Growing up on the south side of Chicago I can remember being in Unique Thrift stores with no more than $20 from my parents and a nag for something used and full of character. I’d search for 1950’s party dresses, 60’s mod dresses, and funky 1970’s boho clothing to represent my particular knack for finding stories and representing magazine covers of real pin up girls from the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. Literally, I’ve been a vintage clothing lover my entire life. My father was an avid thrift and vintage shopper, so obviously I’d learned from the best.

Not to mention, I paired up with producer Classicbeatz for an end of summer feel good song called “Ms Mary Mack”. Check the video below:

As I make my presence known here at TheTriumphantScoop, I would love to take all of you on my journey of finding new vintage items, fabulous thrift items, and my everyday adventures. I can’t wait to share my amazing vintage finds, vintage magazine features, and vintage themed events!

Peace,

Sonya
