Our stylist & model, Hilary Rushford, getting ready for her closeup. This is our Carmen Miranda-inspired look, where we tied the sash of mesh polkadot cocktail dress as an extravagant headband.
A horde of styling shoes. Yes, we need to clear out the collection, as it is massive. Stay tuned as I clear out my personal & my styling closet on MaterialWrld next week, as one of their featured closets!
The final look, which didn't end up as part of the lookbook, even though it was fabulous and we all braved some mighty winds.
This is Market Publique's first foray into designing jewelry, and we were super excited that Brooklyn Charm opened its doors to us and let us pick from its vast selection of vintage charms, dead stock pieces, stones and chain to create whatever our hearts desired. A huge thanks to Tracie Campbell, founder of Brooklyn Charm, and Sarah Brown, who helped immensely to make this collection possible.
The result is a collection of organic pieces created with rough stones, oxidized chains, vintage charms, bone & meteorite remnants and other natural components. Constructed in simple, up-front ways, with visible jump rings, knots and clasps that highlight beauty process and functionality, the pieces are meant to be layered, and come in an affordable range of $25 - $100
We have some new (and vintage!) goodies up our sleeve...

Brand-new tee line BeClassic is celebrating their launch with a lookbook and rooftop party (next week, stay tuned), and I was thrilled to be part of it. The New York City-based line was started by the ever-stylish Stacey Alvarez, who asked a few local bloggers to style it up with abandon, including moi!
Of course, I was happy to oblige, as putting together outfits is one of my favorite pasttimes, but also because the tees are amazing. Made from buttery soft Modal, they are comfy and soft without looking comfy - this is one polished tee. It has enclosed seams (for real - like French-style), which I love (seams are really the sign of luxury, in my opinion), and no itchy tag. The fit is also perfect, and being petite & not flat-chested, I really appreciate a classic, non-boxy, non-deep armhole tee these days.
I styled the Be Classic navy tank with vintage, of course. The tight fit was perfect for the maxi skirt, and I topped it all off with a vintage Kenneth Jay Lane Egyptian revival necklace, a giant vintage crystal ring, vintage belt and Jon's grandmother's leather jacket. For a contemporary twist, I added the sky-high Jessica Simpson shoes all bloggers seem to have.
Check out all the other ladies featured in the lookbook here, including Christine, Amy, Ann, Jess & Greta. So honored to be in that company!
We invited eco-fashion blogger Emma Grady, of Past Fashion Future, to play dress up in our studio and pose for photographer Karen Evans. Above, you can see how much fun we had with this fabulous lady, on a sneak peek to our upcoming lookbook.
Emma, who is a prolific writer based right here in New York City, not only maintains her blog, but also contributes to publications like Discovery's TreeHugger and Hearst's The Daily Green. Her focus is on sustainable fashion, and in particular - VINTAGE! Ever since she fell in love with vintage after scoring an Armani blazer, she's been mixing vintage and new with aplomb. So who better to go comb our racks and come up with a few stunning dress looks? Our thoughts exactly.
Stay tuned as these pieces hit the shop and watch the blog for when we post more photos of Emma.
Can't wait any longer? Need that last dress for prom? No worries. It's right here.
