A Current Affair

I’m not really a vintage clothing person. I tried to vintage shop in high school but my mom deterred me from the whole thing. She doesn’t like the idea of me wearing “used” clothing.

I’m trying to get back into vintage shopping because there’s nothing like it. If one tries to stay “on trend” and keeps buying fast fashion–it’s an endless cycle of shopping. I’m trying to focus on buying higher quality pieces that I can wear for months rather than just a few weeks.

A Current Affair was such a cool event. I got to meet Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes (!!!) and check out a bunch of booths from around the state. My favorites were the James Roland Shop, Eden & Eden, Mixed Business and The Promised Land. So much gorgeous, high quality lace, silk and hand dyed indigo…I literally got chills at this event.

Jane is such a sweetheart. I was a mumbling mess when I met her…I wanted to be like, “I’ve been following you for years and looking up to you and you’re one of the reasons I love fashion!!!” But instead I partially forgot how to speak….*sigh*….life

Incredible embroidery on these shorts. Didn’t end up getting these either because they were a bit too big. (I’m feelin’ a DIY comin’ along…)
