STYLE / 04


photos by: angela+ithyle


sundays are flea market + thrift store days for me. this might sound crazy, but i have this theory that there is a proper way to dress when going to look for deals. you want to look fun and approachable, but also a little serious. serious? yes, serious. you want to talk to the flea market vendors with confidence (and lots of it!). this way they won’t try to rip you off. and sometimes confidence comes from how you are dressed that day, right? this polka dotted vintage shirt mixed with a black blazer and scarf around the neck does the trick just fine.

    Very appropriate for the task….*love*

    pretty!!!!! and love the photos as always. you look great in polka dots (or as elodie calls them ‘coconuts’)

    Monique says:

    I totally agree! Flea markets and swap meets definitely require a bit of serious biz. I’ve noticed dressing down helps, and a little conversation with a vendor can go a long way. Also, don’t act like you can’t live without the treasure, they’ll charge you up the ying yang! On another note, your polka dots are divine.

    cuuuuute bri! my theory with dressing for flea markets… dress waaaay down. i find the sassier i dress, the more the vendors dismiss me. buuuut if i wear some raggedy clothing, bandana in my hair, and red lipstick they all are so much nicer. and usually the older broads tell me i look like rosie the riveter. works. every.time.
