Recessionista Sunday: Nikki Fashion's Day

Oh Nicole... This woman is a walking fashion collage.
Half the time she's made some new abstract necklace or harem pants
and fabulous dress for all of the BK to see as she
rides her bike through the borough dressed to the nines.
She decided to play with us today.

South Beach: The Hunt for Vintage Accessories

What can I not say about Miami....
aside from the great weather and the bath tub warmth of the water, I love shopping for vintage!

I made sure I relaxed and played hard before I got down to the serious business
of vintage shopping...

Here's me and Sabastian, who hooked me up on the prices at SOBE thrifty on Alton Rd...
My wooden necklace was a last minute purchase for about 3 bucks!

It was truly about accessories this trip and I am very happy with my finds...

It took the grace of god for me to not bring this polar bear head back.... I am a true collecther...

Metal and Michelle Wonsley

What can I say about collecther Michelle Wonsley...
She has been a long time customer and become one of my greatest friends and champions of the store.

She never misses an opportunity to play and shop. As seen below,
in all the fabulous metallic vintage belts she decided to buy that day.

This beautiful handmade buckle was recently found on my trip to miami this spring.
Next to it, this elderly lady stopped by wearing a necklace made from a vintage
cigarette liter... Fabulous!

Another collecther showed off her fabulous vintage ring collection, a
reminder of her timeless vintage metalwork can be...
