The STITCH: The Melrose Trading Post

Every Sunday the Fairfax Flea Market is held at Fairfax High on Melrose Ave. I try to make it out to the great mix of antiques, and rare seen vendors as much as I can! This past Sunday I really scored and walked out with a vintage YSL purse for $20, a 1980’s Minolta camera for $35 (totally works), a Leadbelly vinyl for $5, and some cut off shorts for $6!! Talk about a steal. The flea market has a great variety of vintage furniture, clothing, antiques, collectibles, and all around fun. I prefer the Melrose Trading Post because the crowds are never big, it is a woping $2 to get in, and the vendors are sure to deliver. Next time your in the LA area on a Sunday morning stop by Fairfax High and check out the great deals the Melrose Trading Post has to offer!

But most of all I love finding diamonds in the rough (especially shoes) at the Melrose Trading post and pairing them with new Fall pieces from Active . Check out how I wear them all together!  And stop by Active for new Fall arrivals from brands like Obey, Volcom, RVCA, and more!

The STITCH: Turquoise Treasures

the collection

My jewelry has become a part of my life, and a way I express myself everyday. My accessories have become collectables, and I now have a bundle of turquoise treasures. It is a hobby of mine to look for these jems, and find these diamonds in the rough. Everywhere I travel to I am on the hunt for everything from turquoise, to coral, to onyx, and above all antique silver. Flea markets, local antique shops, Morro Bay, and San Francisco are some of my favorite places to look. The thing I love about my jewelry is that it not only expresses my style, but is great to pair with my everyday clothing. Putting together tops and bottoms that I find in Active Ride Shop, from my favorite brands like: Insight, Matix Women, RVCA, and Obey add that extra flare that makes any girl feel unique and fun!! Hope this inspires you to create your own collection of keepsake pieces that will be with you for years to come.
