The Market Publique Pop-Up Shop & Party for Fashion's Night Out
Thank you to all who came to celebrate Fashion's Night Out (and my birthday!) at our Pop-Up Shop! The night was filled with fun, vintage, PBRs, prosecco and Momofuku cake truffles, so of course we knew it was going to be a blast - but we had no idea it was going to be that fun.
We started the day by rearranging our whole office, as we lost the space we were going to use a few days earlier... boo! So in true pop-up DIY Williamsburg style, we pushed our desks to one side, merched the whole studio with one-of-a-kind finds and made it look like a true shop as much as we could.
We partied, tried on new outfits and ended the night much later than the official 11pm end time. So much so, that at 1:30am, off my 5" platforms and into my flats, I ushered everyone out of the studio and into the convenient bar around the corner.
The next day – poof! – it was gone. We even did a photoshoot with Elizabeth of Delightfully Tacky the very next morning in the same spot (sneak peek coming soon!).
Making a funny face - why not? What did I wear? A vintage velvet turban from Erstwhile Style, T by Alexander Wang sheer tank, vintage leather bra, leather skirt from Zara (birthday gift from Erica!) & red Miu Miu backseam platform pumps.
Tons of boys in plaid shirts and glasses came. Hearts.
And you'll get to try on their famous Little Black Dress and its newer, updated counterparts from year two.
Plus there will be accessories from Market Publique for you to try on and accessorize to your hearts content. Because everyone loves playing dress up!

It's been a while already, but we just realized we never showed you photos of our 1st anniversary party at SXSW! Blame it on all the partying we did in Austin, and the exhaustion that comes from days and days of free beer and shows - poor us, right?
We had so much fun, so thank you so much to everyone who came out at our 1st Anniversary party!!
It was great to see everyone, and a big thank you to Paper Garden Records for setting up such a rad band lineup.
Saturday ended up being a super-windy day in Austin, much cooler than any day that week... bummer! So I had to wear a cardigan over my new vintage dress and brave the winds... Here I am, walking through Austin alleyways, sign in hand, braving the gusts of wind coming my way...
I also wore the fringe wedges I got at Girl Next Door. I loved them when I saw them during the New Media Fashion brunch, but despite the 20% discount and the multiple champagne glasses, I still couldn't pull the trigger. After much Twitter debate with Grechen (of Grechen's Closet), I decided to go for it! And I'm so glad I did: they are super comfortable and perfect for concert-going.
But now to the more important things - the pictures!
Brooklyn band The Loom started off the day with some great tunes at Parkside. We all grabbed bloody marys and margaritas to get ready for some racuous partying.
With Boshra of SAADI, Heidi of Paper Garden Garden Records and Damien of Peasant
A big shout out to my best friend Frank and his girlfriend Katie, who helped me out with the signage, transportation, lodging and all sorts of fun-hanving. You guys are amazing!!!!
Fashism hosted a great party at Dress Shop during SXSW. We all came over to try adorable dresses and have a few drinks, and relax after many-a-panel. The outfit above is what I originally wore to the party, but there was many dresses to choose from and change your look...
Sequins are one of the biggest trends this season, on and off the runway, and as evidenced by all the magazines. And why not? They can take you from day-to-night in a flash, and add some sparkle to a basic outfit. Plus, when the holidays roll around, who doesn't want to be drenched in sequins?
Whether it's a little shiny accessory as an accent, or full-blown glitz, we have some vintage options from Market Publique:
