“The Kustom Kills and Hot Rod Thrills” car show in Brooklyn!
The Rumblers have an annual car show under the BQE every year and it is something my family and I always look forward to. This is my 3rd year attending the car show and it seems to get bigger and bigger every year. This year was extra special because I had my friends and family there. My dad brought his Chevy Nova 68′ to the show and It was nice to see him get recognition for his hard work. People from all over where taking shots of his car. Photographers are always all over the area taking pics of pinups at the show along with other candid shots of the beautiful classic cars. I always dress extravagantly because many of the photographers that attend the show work for big magazines. I was shocked when I ended up in hot rod magazine just two years ago. It was a lot of fun despite some douche-bag behavior I dealt with but I guess that is inevitable at a car show where there is tons of men..Some with no home training lol. It was also a shame that the cops shut the show down early, cops always ruin the fun. All in all we made the best of it and ended up having a lovely day. I still have tons of business cards to rummage through to find all of my pictures photographers took but here are some I have now.
Just before the show I headed to ENZ on 2nd ave and Astor place to find a dress for this event. Mariann, the store owner did a great job suggesting this bad girl to me. I didn’t want to wear black but DAMN this dress was a game changer. I believe the dress is by Stop Staring. ENZ is my go-to shop for great vintage reproduction pieces. My hat is vintage and so are my gloves, jewelry, and fur stole. My hosiery is from Agent Provocateur and my shoes are Steve Madden. Oh! and my purse is a vintage Black Russian suitcase ;). I love wearing suitcases as purses!This woman here is my momma and I absolutely love her.My girl Enchante came to the show and I could’nt be happier to finally attend this event with one of my girls!So happy we got to model together!If you see us not looking at the camera it is because we were trying to make sure every photog got there shot lol. My girl Enchante was the only girl at the show channelling the 1960s and she does it oh so well!I was 1940s chic!Oh and by the way, I am totally wearing a wig. 😉This is my father’s car!My momma is so cute!Ahh don’t you love the color on this bad boy?So cool!This is what I need in my life.
