Vintage Shopping at A Current Affair

Hello!  How was your weekend?  This weekend was particularly fun because I was able to do a little pop up vintage shopping at an event in downtown Los Angeles called A Current Affair at the Cooper Design Space.  

This event featured the "best of the best vintage and stylishly dressed fashionistas under one roof".  There were over 60 vintage shops in attendance.  Some of the shops there included: Recess, Scout, Just Say Native, and Mixed Business.

It was my first time attending this one of a kind shopping experience.  I saw some of the most unique pieces of jewelry, accessories, and clothing from the past.  Also, the exhibitors impressed me with their boundless knowledge of the history behind each piece they carried.  That day, I also learned something else. Women's clothing was a lot more feminine in the past, and each piece was made of high quality materials and sewn with great care.  When you purchase a vintage piece, you purchase a unique, high quality item and a piece of history as well.  Love this!

 Another highlight of this event was that it was hosted by Jane Aldridge from Sea of Shoes, whose style I completely adore.  It was really nice meeting her and seeing several vintage outfits she styled for the event.  She is so stylish and sweet!

Additionally, they served light refreshments with music by DJ Marion from KCRW.  I love music from KCRW, especially music from the show Morning Becomes Eclectic.  Have you heard music from this radio show?

I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed putting it together.  If you haven't experienced vintage shopping at A Current Affair events, I would definitely recommend it.    A Current Affair takes place three times a year in Los Angeles and twice a year in New York.  Maybe I'll see you there next time.

Hope you are having a Stylishly Sensational Week!

    sedikit kesaksian untuk berbagi, barangkali ada teman-teman yang sedang
    kesulitan masalah keuangan, Awal mula saya mengamalkan Pesugihan Tanpa
    Tumbal karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya menanggung hutang sebesar
    1M saya sters hampir bunuh diri tidak tau harus bagaimana agar bisa
    melunasi hutang saya, saya coba buka-buka internet dan saya bertemu
    dengan KYAI SOLEH PATI, awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya tapi selama 3 hari
    saya berpikir, saya akhirnya bergabung dan menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI

    minta benar benar ada di tangan saya semua hutang saya lunas dan sisanya
    buat modal usaha. sekarang rumah sudah punya dan mobil pun sudah ada.
