met laura at her pad before embarking on our weekly swap meet adventure at the melrose trading post. it's probably one of my favorite places in the world- i've never failed to find something amazing there in all the years i've been going. if you're ever in LA on a sunday, definitely make time for it.
i found the silver and turquoise ring (first ring photo, third down) and the pink triangle silver ring (second photo, second down) for $5 and $7, respectively. how rad are those rings, and for so ridiculously cheap?! can't beat it.
and what i'm most most most stoked about... these vintage harley davidson perfectly worn in brown motorcycle ankle boots. i have been looking for these FORRRRRREVER and couldn't believe i just found them for EXTREMELY cheap. they're a tad bit big, but i usually like my boots that way. after i receive some orders i've placed over the past few weeks, i'll have an arsenal of perfect flat ankle boots and i couldn't be happier about it.
so, what i wore to the swap meet was: a vintage pink lace slip with an AA bra and AA black bull denim shorts underneath, vintage jewelry, thrifted belt, kenneth cole brown lace up boots, and later switched into the harley davidson boots because i HAD to wear them as soon as i got them.
laura wore an AA tank with a perfect thrifted cardigan from goodwill, vintage cut off shorts, target knee highs, a leopard belt, and vintage brown ankle boots.
after the swap meet, we GORGED ourselves with some burgers (veggie burger for me) and i got a strawberry milkshake to go. i might have gained 20 pounds this afternoon. walking down melrose in that lacey pleated slip while drinking a strawberry milkshake made me feel the girliest i've ever felt- thank god for motorcycle boots, otherwise i'd have felt NOTHING like myself.
here's a throwback for you to jam out to:
