an alameda day

I always go crazy at the Alameda Point Antiques Faire, as evidenced by my overflowing green tote bag. While my fellow flea market buddies Annalise, Jen, Isla and Rachel managed to show some willpower, I was stuffing that bag like my life depended on it. Half of the things I found will be going in the shop sometime soon while the other half I'm keeping for myself (for now at least). My favorite find of the day was definitely the amazing 1960's robe I'm wearing in the photos above. Pure magic and way too good to be worn only at home. I can't wait to style it with something other than my greasy flea market outfit.

We should have a "who can be the goofiest" contest. Girl, you are such a hoot. I am just as powerless when it comes to vintage clothing, so I can totally understand your proclivity for over splurging. amazing robe, my dear.

You fooled me with the robe! I thought to myself, "Wow, that might be the most glorious 1960s coat I've ever seen!" Off to see what underwear I can manage to pass off as outerwear...

Cheers,
