The Manhattan Vintage Show 2013

IMG_9215Well HELLO my loves! Sorry for my hiatus. I was just in LA last week and finally landed in Vegas just a few days ago and with this move and traveling I haven’t had much time to catch up on my blog. With that said..You may see some posts I probably should have done a month ago haha. This is certainly one of them.

A few weeks ago, might even be a month ago, I was feeling really sick but did not want to miss the Manhattan Vintage Show before my move to Vegas. So I put my big girl panties on and ran over to the show right before work so I could see some of my favorite people at some of my favorite booths. I only had two hours before I had to clock in to work but I made the very best of it. I got to see my friends Daniel and Janell at their D&J Vintage booth, Neal and Judy Bergman at What Was Is Vintage, Carla from Carla and Carla, and some of the lovely folks at Amalgamated Vintage. I also got to meet Jean Paul Gaultier! He was awesome and let me take a photo of him. I noticed him right away as I was admiring the beautiful vintage hats at the Go Vintage booth. I didn’t do any shopping this time around but I did see some really cool pieces I wish I bought! Allow me to show you around..

  1. Thanks for the pics and commentary, looks like a fabulous event. Pity you didn’t have time to add to your collection 😉

  2. Oh my God this is so awesome. I Wish i’ve been There !
    Your friend Janell has some incredible pièces to her collection I love it. And the shoes, oh the shoes.

  3. I so wanted to attend this event this year, but due to my current circumstances it would’ve been toture, and after seeing your photos…. yeah I would’ve died!

  4. I’m pretty sure that sweater design is trying to mimic ermine, a fur that is often cut and tanned with the black-tipped tail as an accent. You’ve probably seen a lot of ermine in medieval paintings of royalty, where it usually accented a cape or cloak 🙂
