POSTMORTEM: Silver Lake Art Craft & Vintage + Rose Bowl Flea Market

Last weekend Allyson from Birthday Life Vintage and I embarked on an epic road trip to Los Angeles to do two shows; Silver Lake Art Craft & Vintage and Rosebowl Flea Market. Silver Lake was such a cute little place, with the farmer’s market right down the street it was the perfect day for an outdoor fair!  Allyson and I had so much fun there, we hope you did too!

  At Silver Lake, I met Carrie from Barrington Blue and Lisa from Recycculents.  It’s so funny, the day before the market, I was browsing through Instagram and I found Carrie’s photos and I fell in love with her designs.  As we pulled into the parking lot of the elementary school that morning to set up our booth, I instantly spotted Carrie’s upholstery work.  What a small world!

At the Rose Bowl, we decorated our space with a July 4th theme!  We got up super early (3am) and got to The Bowl at about 4:30am.  It was really crazy with all the pickers with their flashlights hunting us down and snooping through our van while we were unpacking!  It was so much fun though.

Allyson and I got so pumped for our themed booth that we even dressed up in matching outfits!  Allyson is wearing deadsock vintage red, white and blue floral capris and a boatneck red and white striped top.  I am wearing a red and white striped tank that I made and a maxi skirt I made from blue and white floral vintage fabric.

All day we ran into super cool, fun and fashionable people; and I couldn’t help but to take some pics!

POSTMORTEM: Treasure Island Flea @fleaTI + T-We @SFtwetea + Lix Perle

For those of you who peeped the Instagram or Facebook page, you knew we had a booth this past weekend at Treasure Island Flea.  The weather was amazing and so beautiful, it was almost a crime to be inside, so all you lovelies who shopped with us, you probably got your vitamin D fix.

Aside from the beautiful weather, my booth was right next to a lovely little lady, Lyseen, from Lix Perle.  How cute are we in red houndstooth?!  Lyseen makes super awesome infinity scarves made from vintage fabrics or that have been knit by either her or her (totally adorbs) mom.

We had so much fun being neighbors, and Lyseen even brought her favorite inspiration book to share with me, Fruits by Shoichi Aoki (also by my favorite publisher Phaidon), about Tokyo street fashion.  There is also a second book, by the same author; check it out HERE.  Tokyo is totally on my bucket list– I have always been inspired by Japanese street fashion and the fashion fearlessness everyone possesses.  Lyseen and I even stopped by T-We for some yummy tea samples.  There, we met Christopher and Kier, two totally awesome tea blending, holster-wearing guys.  Turns out they knew my accountability buddy Dani, from The Recoverie.

While sitting at my booth drinking my favorite Earl Grey, photography student, Kim Nguyen, zipped by me with two cameras and then came back and asked me if she could take my picture.  She was so sweet, and I love that she was using two cameras– one for black and white and the other for color.  Rock, on Kim, rock on.

PS The hat I am wearing is totally my fave!  I don’t think I can part with it…sorry ladies.  But I have many many more for your spring time pleasure!  Coming soon!
