Regardless, we suspect you are now instantly hooked with this blogger's easy chic vintage style, inpired by the 50s and 60s. And when she won a gift certificate to Market Publique, we were not surprised when she chose this vintage heart print dress from the 50s to spend it on. The dress, from Market Publique seller Jen Fitch Style, is a prime example of the 50s with its New Look silhouette and charming novelty print. And, like everything else in this shop, it was handpicked by Jen Fitch herself, ensuring its excellent condition.
New York has been a scorcher - but I don't mind. I love warm weather and don't complain about it because my motto is I can only complain about one kind of weather - too hot or too cold. If I complain about both, then I go over my complaining quota for the year. So hurray for extra hot weather (have you met me during winter? Hate it).
During the warm monts I gravitate towards vintage sundresses, flat sandals and hats. I found this amazing one at Fluke in lime green and cream stripes and big creamy yellow buttons, which reminds me of key lime pie with a graham cracker crust - delicious!
I paired it with this amazing boater hat from Hold My Gold, which owner Erica sent me over as a gift. We become fast friends and have some fun suprises in store for you - stay tuned as she makes a comeback on Market Publique because Hold My Gold is moving to New York City!! Hotness indeed.

Last weekend, shops and restaurants on Franklin St. in Greenpoint, Brooklyn were celebrating the arrival of nice weather with some deals on food and my favorite- clothes! Not being one to miss a deal, I headed over on my tricycle to check out the festivities. And I found some great stores! They will be featured on the blog in the next few days. For now, here's my outfit, since I have been kind of slacking on those fronts...

This dress was too much fun not to get - it looks like a skirt / shirt combo, but it's a dress! And the skirt has adorable drawings of a carnival, complete with a hot dog & clams stand, Tunner of Love, carrousel and other kitchy things like that.
I heart Emanuelle Khahn!
When I stumbled upon these sunnies at Amarcord Vintage, I had to have them! Not only were they the perfect round shape, a silhouette I had been craving, but they were Emanuelle Khahn, one of my favorite vintage eyewear designers. Khanh was a model for Balenciaga and Givenchy in the 60s, and reacting to the inaccessibility of haute couture, started her own ready-to-wear line in the 70s. She was also a designer to Missoni and Max Mara, and launched her eyewear collection around the 80s, which became her signature item, especially the ones with the famous EK logo, like these. Score!
