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: Art In The Streets at MOCA

art in the streets

The Museum of Contemporary Art in LA is hosting a fabulous mix of street artists from around the world in a new venue in Little Tokyo downtown. Work will be up until August 8th, and is definitely a must do for the Summer time! If you love street art, the skate culture that has evolved from it, and a mixture of unique artists, this exhibit is for you. I went down on opening night and snapped some shots of my favorite stuff. As a little hint, it is free every Monday from 11am to 5pm, so head down and check it out – you only have a little over a week left!
