Out and About[LA] It's a Current Affair Vintage Pop Up in DTLA

I was finally able to make it out to A Current Affair Vintage Pop Up and Market Place a couple of weeks ago, and let me tell you I am so glad I did.  Below you will find pictures of a few  of the vintage goodies that got me excited.  I wish I could have been able to snap away at every single amazing piece of vintage I encountered, but of course that would be a tad bit silly and overwhelming.  There is something so magical and special when shopping vintage, every single piece is a treasure that gets to shine again.

Marie Monsod was one of my favorite booths for shopping accessories.   My favorite was the extensive collection of belts, and the lovely clutches which happen to be my current obsession.

Alkemie Jewelry
I was seriously blown away by Alkemie jewelry, and secretly wish I could afford to purchase very single piece in the collection, since every design is so unique and special.  My favorite was the starfish cuff, and all of the amazing rings!
Richard Wainwright
 yes that's a piggy necklace! One of a kind pieces with a playful glam whimsy vibe.

I usually don't go for clean classic silhouettes, I really don't know why I like complicating my life.  However, recently I have been gravitating towards anything with bold rich color, and clean minimalistic lines. I fell in love with this beautiful blue number below, the electric color and unique texture had me instantly!  Kimberly is fab, fab, fab and lets congratulate her on her move to the California Market Center!

I was thrilled to meet Sandra, my fellow vintage and blogger chica! She was selling these beautiful Raffia handbags originally made in Japan in and donating 100% of the profits to help out Japan.
All of the Debutante Clothing vintage goodies have unique details that make them stand out, and stand alone when worn in any outfit combination.  Check out the beautiful tassel detail on the dress above, and the wonderful beaded detail on the dress below.
It's always great to connect with my Latina fashion chicas, Sandra and I chatted and shared our silly stories about being a Latina fashionista!Photobucket

I was not planning on  doing a lot of shopping, but as soon as I saw this amazing necklace from Aimee's booth Daily Goods I knew it had to come home with me!  I also wanted this fabulous yellow pouch clutch to come home with me too, but decided to be  a good girl and let someone else enjoy it.
Over sized, comfy, and effortless yes that's exactly how I love my tops.  WELTENBUERGER's pieces are easy, basic, and uncomplicated with an 80's vibe.  I was totally drooling over all of their extremely wearable tops, especially the short-long lime green top.  Oh and did I mention that the prices are amazingly fabulous!!

Color, color, and more color made me happy and giddy at Robert Black.  The Robert Black booth featured beautiful vintage pieces that made me extremely excited about piling on the bright colors this Spring and Summer. 
 Had a great time drooling, oooh-ing and ahh-ing over such beautiful vintage treasures.  If you have not been to A Current Affair keep your eyes open because it's coming back and you will not want to miss it!
