Statement in ombre

3/13/12




Zara ombre blouse, Le Mont St. Michel top, Kasil Workshop artisan shorts, Zara sandals, YSL ring, Michael Kors watch, Forever 21 and J.Crew bracelet, H&M choker

After having recently written a quick blurb for Chictopia's Everybody Is Ugly (here) on how to incorporate statement accessories into your spring wardrobe, I found my way back to wearing a little more jewelry and accessories again. Gold always contrasts nicely with cool blue, and this ombre Zara top is way, way cool. Anyway, check out the short write-up to see what I'm ogling over for the spring season.

What was supposed to be a relaxing weekend actually felt like a long, wrought-out list of to-dos squeezed into two days... but, I did get the chance to check out the Rose Bowl Flea Market! It only occurs once a month and I've been trying to get my arse out there for a year and a half, do I feel accomplished? Heck yeah. Awesome place for home decor and furniture! Too bad I didn't walk out with vintage jewelry that I had gone in to look for; instead I unearthed two awesome belts, which is still fine by me. Hoping to try out the Melrose Trading Post next... any one been?

How do you do your hair? They are always so perfect! :)

I am kind of a flea market junkie... Melrose is nicely curated, but on the smaller side. I have always found more at the Long Beach flea, and it's not as exhausting as the Rose Bowl can be. It's on my calendar for this coming Sunday, maybe I will see you there!

I love this look! I've been looking for a pair of sandals like that and you pull them off so well!
As far as the Melrose Trading post goes, I'm obsessed. There have been months where I go every weekend. My friends come to me when they want to check it out. It's great. The Rose Bowl can be kind of intimidating, with it's huge antiques area and the separated clothing area. But the clothing area is pretty similar to Melrose, Melrose is just smaller and more compact. I highly recommend it! It's only $2 to get in (but you can find a coupon here http://www.melrosetradingpost.org/discount-admission-coupon.php) and very easy to navigate!
Hope that helped!

Trading post is ok, very small though. You will be done in a hour or less.

Jean said...

Melrose Trading Post is pretty cool. I still prefer Rose Bowl because its bigger. Love your blog!

Anonymous said...

I've been! The stuff there is great and much more refined than the rose bowl, but pretty much anything you find there can be found at the bowl but for twice the rose bowl price. If you're feeling low on patience, its definitely the way to go. But rosebowl is the cheapest way to go with much more stuff!

Gorgeous pics! The scenary is amazing.

You look stunning!!!
It really flatters your figure! Much love!

I was at the Rose Bowl too last weekend, it was kind of slow but it's always fun to people watch and go through the piles and piles of vintage.
The Melrose flea market's much much smaller! But still worth the trip. It has fairly nice cheap jewelry and a few good vendors of furniture. I'll be going this weekend!
