Fashion Friends, Fleas, and French Food

Sunday I met up with a few of my NYC Fashion Blogger friends to hit up the famed Williamsburg, Brooklyn Flea Market. It was however, my third week in a row there, so I just perused my favorite booths and added my two cents into the other girls’ purchases and potentials. We lounged around for a bit on the gorgeous waterfront which is coincidentally my second favorite view in all of New York City.

As fashion bloggers, we took a substantial amount of pictures of each other, so the images all link back to each blogger’s blog!

After walking around followed by relaxing, we headed to a late brunch down Bedford Ave at an amazing french restaurant. We all had some sort of delicious plate, and then were surprised by a dessert tasting! My favorite is the creme brulee, though the chocolate mousse was decadently rich like a thick fudge and the seasoned fruit cake melted in your mouth.

Mmmm….fancy, delicious, AMAZING creme brulee! Now for the fashion; What I Wore:

Forever 21 crop top

Vintage maxi skirt

DB sandals

Peter Grimm hat

Vintage cross body bag


July 30th, 2010 is going down in my books as probably THE best day ever. I was up alllll night with one of my best friends ever. I slept maybe 3 hours, she didn’t sleep at all. We woke up at 6, showered, then she had a photoshoot. While at her photoshoot, her grandfather and I hung out on the RI/CT border. We found cows, who I pet and they licked me. We ended up at a random flea market and I found a great breakfast in bed tray from the 60’s with flamingos on it, which I bargained for and bought for my parents. Then I came across stunning hats from the 40’s and 50’s, and at the same stand a vintage Vogue from 1945. I made a deal with the sales woman and bought the magazine, as well as this adorable vintage bag (right) for $20 total! It was such a steal and while I’m still heavily in debt from my NYC roommates, I still feel it was the best purchase of my life to date. I’ll be posting a big post tonight or tomorrow with some scans/images from the magazine.

Anyway, after my friend finished her photoshoot, she treated her grandfather and I to the Mystic Aquarium…I had never been, but OMG LOVE. You c an pet sharks, and sting rays, and feed the rays…SO SO much fun. Here’s a few pictures for your non-fashionable enjoyment!

So, aquarium, lunch at cracker barrel, then making a few sales on my extra clothes from my closet (and finally being able to pay my cell phone bill!) I went to an ABC Party with some friends I knew in high school. Everyone was so creative with their outfits! check out this pic:

After a wonderful night with friends, I crawled into bed with my amazing boyfriend and fell asleep next to him. AKA most perfect day.

Enjoy, and I’ll be posting more of those flea market finds in another post!
