It’s time to switch it up. We’ve done a ton of ultra girlie looks around these parts over the past few weeks. And well there’s another side of me you should know about: the weekend warrior. This is the kind of uniform I’d wear to run errands, meet friends for coffee or ride my bike around midtown.
I love heading to the antique fair in Sacramento. It was a perfect overcast day underneath the freeway. During this month’s trip we hunted down vintage rings and beautiful amethyst rocks. The event felt a bit more stylish this time around because I was with my two sidekicks Vanessa and Jaclyn. It’s fun exploring with others because they help bring to light items you might have glazed over.
Being annoying bloggers with our cameras haha the lady behind the mirror was not pleased with us haha.
Tip #1: Wear comfy shoes! I’ve actually made it my mission this season to prove sports sneakers are NO longer considered “atrocious” to wear outside of the gym. Try pairing your favorite girlie dress with some sporty sneakers–the new balance 565′s have been a favorite this season! When the shoe comes in a fun color–it looks intentional rather than “I couldn’t figure out what shoes to wear”. Although, my boss did call them barney shoes. *sad face*
Tip #2: Remember to bring a big tote when you’re exploring a craft fair, flea market or garage sale. You never know what goodies you’ll find and need to carry with you throughout the day!
Tip #3: Keep an open mind. We came in search of mid-century modern side tables but left with vintage rings, t-shirts and rocks! Sometime if you’re too focus on one thing you’ll miss out on some hidden treasures!
Tip #4: Arrive early! If you want to get the unique pieces before they’re snagged up, you’ve got to wake up early and get there before the crowds arrive. And believe me, the older crowd is very serious about their antiquing! It’s a sport you know!
This comical “totes ma goats” bag was a Christmas gift from mi madre. Even got a compliment for a women in her 70′s—I guess this “totes” craze is wider spread than I thought! Have a week folks!
Now that it’s Spring we can turn our attention towards our favorite transitional piece, the tan trench. I found this one at Gap last season. It was a pretty full skirt on it so I had it altered by my local tailor, who I think wanted to kill me when I dropped off the piece because I’m sure it was a pain in the arse to alter.
How fun is this textured wall? If you’re local and can guess where this spot is, I’ll buy you a slice of pizza *hint *hint!
Oh by the way, this fur stole has been stolen from another jacket and added onto this one. You’ll see what I mean in the next few photos—wait for it…
It was very windy in this alley way a big gust took my fur stole by storm! I wish we had caught the few frames after this shot because the fur piece went so high in the air and almost landed on top of the building! I think this calls for a #adventuresinfashionblogging haha. Seriously though shooting on Sundays with Vanessa is one my favorite times of the week. I feel so energized while we’re shooting. Scouting the locations and waiting for the perfect lighting is still all so magical to me. When so much of life is highly structured it’s great to exist in a space where ideas and possibilities are limitless. And for me that is what keeps this online space alive.
