If you don't use Advantage scratch your ears



This post is somewhat overdue, however better late than never! Flea market hopping in LA on a scorching yet beautiful early day, because frankly that’s all I could afford (the dollar piles, more specifically.) I found some goodies, but the highlights were the vintage jewelry I snagged that I could not pass up. My allergies were absolutely NUTS that day, which shouldn't be unexpected in the presense of considerable amounts of vintage (i.e., VERY OLD) wearables.














Random floral strong-shoulder top from Buffalo Exchange, AA Acid wash shorts, old random boots, Vintage Guess purse via Mother






I loved this Vote-4-Pedro look alike prom photo almost more than the old love letter, which I actually sat down and read, much to Boy's dismay.








My favorite vendor above


The boy skated a well-known rail/ledge at a high school on site for a good hour, so I got some R&R in the shade with my pb&j, orange, and camcam (if you haven't yet, you'll notice the annoying yet terribly catchy nicknames I dub for almost anything.)

To those religious or not, Happy Easter/Bunny Day!

  8. How exciting. I went to a flee market in Guadulahara once when I was I kid. I didn't appreciate it enough. it was on 3 levels and quite intersting.

    I so love so many pics you took. Awesome shades.

    Thanks much for the note. Hope you are feeling better, too.
