Boots, trucks & fleas.
My weekend doesn’t feel complete unless I spend my Sunday afternoons at the flea market. The Melrose and Fairfax Trading Post has been my Sunday hang ever since I moved to Los Angeles seven years ago. Whether I’m in the market for some vintage threads or Indonesian yard ornaments, getting my LA people watching fix is reason enough to peruse the market. Undeniably the best street style that you’ll find in LA. (Maybe besides going to a Growlers show in Echo Park on a Friday night). I’m guilty of contributing to this fashion scene…I’ll rock my newest and coolest blogging finds even if it means I’ll be sweating through each piece of clothing while sifting through shredded t-shirts and pretending that the LA sun beating down at full force is no big deal. I’ve made it through summer camping at the Gorge, I can definitely handle some flea market swamp ass. What have I been rocking at the flea market recently? My new fave boots from Billi Blues and killer harness by Charley Ray.
Paired with a white lace shirt that I found in my garage storage (thank you Justin for allowing me to keep my bins of random clothes that fill up a full parking spot in the garage) and my new ‘betta butt’ jeans by YMI that my mom bought for me blindly without me trying them on. It’s hard enough to find denim on your own, let alone have your mom ship you a pair from across the country sight unseen. Unbelievable!
