When it comes to jewelry I like very dainty, delicate, unique gold pieces that tell a story. I would say about 90% of my jewelry collection has come from flea markets, street fairs and boutiques from all over the world. I’ve spent many weekends sifting through markets all around Los Angeles and Orange County and I have a few favorites.

Melrose Trading Post

One of my favorite flea markets in Los Angeles is Melrose Trading Post because you can find anything from jewelry to unique furniture pieces. There are all types of vendors ranging from vintage to modern and everyone is pretty easy going when it comes to bargaining. The last time I went I was able to buy a bundle of earrings for pretty cheap because I grabbed so many and the vendor knew I was a returning customer. You might even see a celeb if you look hard enough.

Long Beach Antique Market

I always go to Long Beach Antique Market when I’m looking for vintage decor pieces for my home. The best purchase I ever got from there was my gold-rimmed mirror that I used to create a homemade vanity. I was able to bargain with the vendor and he wouldn’t let me leave until I left with that mirror, hello discount! The used decor pieces can be re-purposed into something really beautiful, not to mention they won’t break the bank.

Patchwork Show

The Patchwork Show is always fun because it’s a ‘Modern Makers Festival’ meaning it’s a bunch of emerging artists selling their one-of-a-kind hand-made pieces. I come here for jewelry, clothing and artwork because it’s so different than anything I see in the stores. It’s always exciting to support emerging artists and watch their careers blossom. Also, they usually sell their items for cheaper at these shows than they do on their online boutiques.

I went to 29rooms by Refinery29 and it was SO COOL. Yes, there were literally 29 different rooms decorated with a unique theme and message pertaining to female empowerment, creativity, style and culture. My absolute favorite room was the ‘Silent Disco’ because it was filled with sparkling disco balls and headphones so you can dance and listen to music! I painted paper lanterns, heard stories of gender neutrality and ran around in confetti falling from the ceiling. There was so much to look at I was overwhelmed and wanted to immediately run into every room. I highly recommend going as it felt like a huge adult playground, but with really inspiring messages through each door.

I am a total sucker for a good watch. For me, a large watch face and fun colors always catch my eye. I believe a watch should be a statement piece that can elevate any outfit no matter what I’m wearing. It’s always the last accessory I put on when I want to feel sleek and sophisticated. I recently found this really special watch company called JORD Watches that makes beautiful wood watches with intricate details. I immediately fell in love with their products and had to get the ‘Frankie Series – Dark Sandalwood & Emerald.’ The most special part about their watches is that they do personal engraving and I was able to have my name engraved on the back of my watch. I can’t wait to get these watches engraved for all of my friends, hello holiday gifting! Also, when I received this watch I was blown away by the packaging! It came in a beautiful wood box that contained cleaning supplies and extra links so I can change the size if needed. This box not only contains everything I need, but it’s also a great décor piece!

I’m currently partnering with JORD Watches for the holidays! These watches are a perfect gift for anyone on your list and they offer both Mens’ and Womens’ watches. I’m offering a 25% discount to all of my followers on any JORD Watch through December 19th. Click the link below for your 25% discount coupon code!

I am an absolute sucker for vintage clothes, flea markets and street fairs. Basically anything that is from another era of life that I wish I was apart of. The majority of my home consists of furniture, little trinkets, clothing and jewelry from markets that I’ve collected from all over the world. So obviously when I saw this jumpsuit I HAD to have it. It screams vintage 70’s chic with perfect floral detail and a wide leg silhouette. When I wear this outfit I feel like I’ve been transported back in time when the clothes were flowy and fun.

IT’S FINALLY FALL! I can’t even put into words how excited I am. Yes I grew up in California, but everyone has always told me I belong on the East Coast because of how much I love cold weather and snuggling up in my winter clothes. Now that it’s getting a little chilly I can finally throw on my favorite pants and long sleeve tops. And yes, they are usually all black.

I’ve been a beach girl my entire life. I grew up in Orange County and now I live in the cutest townhouse just walking distance to the ocean in Los Angeles. My whole life has consisted of comfortable, casual clothes that I can run around outside in. I am SO happy that sneakers are back in action and making such a wave in the fashion world because now I can look cute AND comfortable. I’m obsessed with my Adidas Stan Smiths and I wear them with pretty much anything. This dress from Urban Outfitters has been a staple in my summer wardrobe along with my favorite Current/Elliott jacket that my co-workers had made for me with my last name embroidered on the back, AMAZING RIGHT?

There’s nothing I love more than a floral dress. Add an ‘off the shoulder’ silhouette and I’m in absolute heaven. Thank you Current/Elliott for making this beauty that I can easily throw on to survive this hot hot heat. The chunky heels are from Joie and they make for a perfect summer sandal.
