I actually started out the day by wearing only the vintage fuzzy top and vintage silver metallic pants with the heels and necklace, but when I saw the vintage Michael Hoban for North Beach blue leather jacket at my job – a vintage clothing showroom – I put it on (mainly because I was chilly) and quickly realized that this was the “bread to my butter,” if you will. The outfit was OK, but that jacket really added the “WOW” factor, with the blue hue really popping against the white and silver.

Huge thanks to Lauren of Zinn Photography for taking my outfit photos!

I recently received some dainty jewelry from my lovely friend, Julia LoVan- a jewelry designer and consultant out of California. LoVan, an Iowa native, is currently residing in Orange County and not only creates jewelry, but is also working on a summer collection of sewing patterns for the modern gal. She explains, “This first collection will be a grouping of patterns that I feel any modern gal would like to know how to make for herself and for her loved ones, like a classic dress silhouette, a purse, or a camisole. After years of creating product, I found that teaching others to sew quality items for themselves (or mend their favorite items) was one of the best things I could do to help them live a less consumerist lifestyle.”

I received the Lariat Hammered Necklace, a Bracelet Stack, with a Bright Sky Blue Faceted Glass Beaded Bar Bracelet. These pieces are from the Rise jewelry collection of her ‘pet project’ – J. LoVan. J. LoVan is a sustainable company that helps to empower both local and global communities. Julia’s designs are crafted from upcycled, vintage, and new materials. I wanted to pair the bits and baubles with my white, gauzy vintage dress and olive green vintage vest because I feel that LoVan’s jewelry exudes an earthy-bohemian vibe, which is what my “wardrobe mood” was that day. Be sure to also follow Julia over at TrouvesHome.com and on Instagram.

Flea Style HOUSTON- May 7th

Flea Style (formerly The Dallas Flea) is taking its popular one-day market on the road this spring and setting up shop at Houston’s Silver Street Studios on May 7th. The event plans to have two shows a year in Houston (the second is slated for November 19th). Flea Style selected Houston as its first sister city location for its vibrant art scene and enthusiastic shoppers who have made their passionate demands heard for this curated marketplace hawking handmade, vintage and one-of-a-kind items to come to town. Attendees can expect 100-plus booths manned by artists, collectors, thrifters, junkers, pickers, painters, calligraphers, designers, potters and more. Vendors are traveling from all over Texas, and as far away as Oregon to showcase their wares. The incredibly talented lineup includes Tyler’s AAVintedge (vintage women’s clothing), Dallas’s Cowgirl Cuties (vintage cowboy boots), Portland, Oregon’s Ladies of Paradise (boho jewelry) as well as Houston darlings Manready Mercantile (gorgeous goods for guys and the home), Sunchild (beautiful handmade objects), Lynne Goode Vintage (retro/mid-century furniture) and Bole and Buck (rustic kitchen/home goods).

“We are ecstatic to bring our beloved show to Houston,” says Flea Style founder Brittany Cobb. “We know this hip and sophisticated city will love our unique market, where attendees can not only shop rare goods, but also meet the inspiring makers behind each item.”

Flea Style carefully curates its vendors to highlight unique, handmade, vintage and one-of-a-kind lifestyle wares, including: clothing, jewelry, art, furniture, décor, lighting, dog gear and children’s items. In addition to booths brimming with exceptional finds, shoppers can expect fun activities including The Shutterbus Photo Booth, a DIY floral crown station, live music and giveaways. And because even the most eager of shoppers needs to rest and refuel, there will be food trucks providing sustenance and a bar slinging drinks.

Flea Style takes place Saturday, May 7th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Silver Street Studios, which is located at 2000 Edwards St. The first 100 shoppers will score a free canvas tote goodie bag. Tickets are just $5 cash at the door, or skip the entrance line by purchasing pre-sale tickets HERE. Kids 12 and under get in free.
