My best friend sent me this remnant from my past with the subject line, “Look Familiar?”. I knew I HAD to share this for a little Throwback Thursday! Here is a glimpse into my “humble” beginnings as a fashion writer. This was a piece I wrote for my high school paper. To put this kindly, I was still trying to find my voice and testing the patience of my schoolmates was a favorite pastime of mine. It’s quite an amusing read! A gold star to whoever catches my huge spelling error!
So many adorable trinkets and doo-dads! I loved these little vintage avon perfume and lotion bottles. This one was shaped like a little toad stool with a frog prince sitting on top! The only thing deterring me from buying the lot was the contents inside. Sixty year old beauty products do not keep well.
There were so many racks full of awesome sweaters and jackets. This sweater is ideal for throwing on over a long sleeve dress when you something cozy and chic. One of my favorite finds was a hunter green sweater featuring a fox hunter and his hounds. Too bad it was just a little too big and a little too pilled for my taste.
Expect to find a TON of great vintage. One booth in the far back of the market (or front given you entered the correct) stood out as the favorite. This tent was full of amazing vintage pieces and everything I picked up had a $10 price tag. Jessie and I got to play with some of the best pill box hats and vintage veils! Definitely a great place to hit up if your looking for a halloween get up.
Oh look! I’m a gif!
It’s here! My first outfit post! My awesome photographer and amazing friend, another Jessie of course, helped me stake out this gem of a location in Golden Gate Park. Such a beautiful setting on a perfect day nonetheless. I couldn’t have asked for a better day and better company for my first shoot! We were so pleased with the results!
Decided to dive in with this holiday and go all red, white and blue!
