I have had the pleasure of trying this coat on in person, and oh my is it warm! With cozy faux fur lining and fuzzy plaid exterior, this coat oozes coziness. Unfortunately, it's a bit too big for my 5' 1" friend, so I will be very jealous of whomever snaps this one up.
Opt for a luxe coat without the luxe price tag by choosing this amazing classic coat in wool from Erstwhile style. Dress it down with jeans, a crewneck sweater and boots, and up with a little dress and an animal print accessory, as seen here!
When fashion blogger Rebecca, better known as The Clothes Horse, told us she was going to be in town for New York Fashion Week, we decided to invite her to our studio to play dress-up and do a photoshoot.
The result are these amazing photos, a true collaboration between The Clothes Horse and Market Publique. We had so much fun, and I think you can tell in the photos! Most vintage items are available for sale now, so don't miss out!
The Bust Craftacular was tons of fun! Great music was spinning (we heard some awesome vintage tunes!), lots of people to meet and talk to, and we sold some great vintage pieces, while still getting to hang out, chat, and drink a beer (or two). Not a bad way to spend a Sunday, if I do say so myself!
Thank you for coming by to visit us!!
Most photos by Kate Sims (the bright and good ones are hers, the three kinda crappy ones I took with my lil' point and shoot...).
We had our booth in the corner, next to the bar - a great way to meet people. Traci, who is featured on our latest postcard, came to help us. We both dressed in all-out black sequins!
We brought more sequins for everyone too, and tons of cozy, cuddly sweaters. And a Bonnie Cashin coat!
We had a great turnout, as you can see! Thank you everyone for all your support on our first Bust Craftacular ever!
Here's me in my sequins! I got this amazing blazer from Sammy D Vintage, who was so super nice to write this awesome post about us and helped us spread the word. Thank you Sammy! Not only did my outfit shine with her vintage, but she's so great!
I also opted for flat boots, and wore my trusty Loeffler Randalls, since I knew I was going to have to stand all day, plus carry tons of clothes back and forth for the set-up and break-down. Style? check. Comfort? check.
I also pretty much never drink beer (gluten issues), but it looked too delicious, since we were right next to he bar...
The bar was a great way to meet cool people, like Jessie, who makes these awesome feathered earrings (our photographer, Kate, had to get a pair!). We love how they're assymetrical.
Jessie and other cool people perused our box of scarves, racks of clothes and our small men's section.
Plus we had tons of little accessories to go with the clothes.
This girl zero-ed into this wool Southwestern print skirt by German label Mondi. She said she loves wearing all her mom's Mondi stuff from the 70s and 80s.
She tried it on, and it was meant to be! off she went, in her new vintage skirt, awesome elephant necklace and gorgeous hair. I mean seriously, can I have that hair?
Leslie came to help us out in the afternoon, and she rocked it. Soon, so soon, you'll be able to take a peek at her new collection... Stay tuned. And that awesome jacket she's wearing? Vintage 80s The Limited. Uh huh.
Blogger Jessy of Wide Awake Thoughts loved Leslie's jacket. She was visiting from Australia, and was the nicest! It was so great to meet her and her beau. If you haven't checked out her blog, I highly recommend! She puts together some mean outfits, as you can see.
Speaking of rad jackets, blogger Kim (who you may also recognize from Keiko Lynn's blog) fell in love with this gold sequined jacket. Some other lucky girl is now wearing it for New Years, as it sold right before the show ended.
We met some of the Bust people too. Everyone was super nice, helpful and accomodating. They put together a great event. Thank you Bust!
Vintage is in the air, and we love how Brooklyn based bloggers Keiko Lynn and Jessica wear it.
Keiko and I had lunch a few days ago near the Market Publique studio, and she came by to pick up the prize for our upcoming giveaway on her blog (check back for details!). Our studio is always tempting territory, filled with vintage goodies galore, perfect for browsing around. She found some adorable vintage gloves in a muted orange hue, and they went so perfectly with her plaid coat that we decided it was meant to be and give them as a gift to her.
