Vintage Expo

The Vintage Expo is a place where you go and buy the best vintage you could probably find in the country. Its vintage dealers and collectors that travel around the US with a the expo and its usually at the SM civic center in Los Angeles. Its great for Fashionistas that love VINTAGE everything. Prices vary depending on the dealer or the store booth you are buying from. There is definitely room for bargain with everyone which is great. Its clothing, accessories so on and so forth. The latest expo was this past weekend where I went with a few of my girlfriends and we found some great items. The images above are the items I found. A 1960's Saks Fifth Ave clutch thats white patent leather and absolutely could be worn today with an evening dress or even with some jeans.  You could dress it up or down. Another piece that I bought was a vintage dress that totally reminded me of this amazing Oscar De la Renta dress that I saw on the Red Carpet at the Elton John Oscar party and totally fell in love, so I had to have this one that was also black and white floral and I will make it my own once its tailored to my figure. If you'd like to attend one of the vintage expo's check out their website for up coming tour dates.

Bedding Speaks about your Style

The Bedding you choose often for you bed also speaks about your style so please choose wisely :) My new one was actually inspired and came by the idea of the season we are currently in now which would be Spring. The pillows I have had for more than I'd say 7 years. They're sort of vintage to me. I bought them a little before I first moved out on my own and then somehow they ended up in my moms storage guess I got over them at some point. I then remembered " Maya you have some nice pillows somewhere that would be great for spring" So the next day I went to a linen store and found this awesome comforter cover with two pillow decorative cases and thought these will go great with my Shabby Chic pillows and viola they sure did and I love it. This about how comforting you want your bed to look like when you enter your bedroom and throw a little fashion into it :)
