The Manhattan Vintage Show 2013
Well 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..
The logo of the Manhattan Vintage show happens to be a Vogue cover from the year 1950 by Erwin Blumenfeld. I happen to have a rare playsuit with this exact print from the 50’s as well. A modern take on vintage fashion by Mary McFadden. I’ll take both of these please.Lucky number booth 45 and here I am as the D&J Vintage poster girl!
Wish I looked as alive as I do in the photo but I had a bad cold haha.One of my favorite people in the world, Janell! She has a great eye for vintage statement pieces! Some of my best pieces are from her shop! ❤ Her racks of greatness! I want it all!D&J vintage gems!
Hats, hat boxes, change purses and more.Hats and brooches!One of my favorite pieces at her booth. Too bad it wasn’t my size!She had some amazing YSL pumps I also wish were my size!Love these too!It was a double whammy that Carla & Carla shared a booth with D&J! Look at all of her goodies!
Carla and Janell happened to have the same dresses in different colorways by the same designer in the 60s!
Weird sweater at the Carla & Carla booth but I’d probably wear it haha!I feel like I owned this in my past life. The Go Vintage booth had some of the best vintage hats I have ever SEEN dating back to the 1900s. Want them ALL! GORG. Oh hayyy Jean Paul Gaultier! He was super sweet!I am sure he found some of his vintage works of art here at the MVS.I always have to come visit my friends Neal and Judy Bergman. I absolutely love them and have gotten some amazing vintage pieces from them in the past as well!
They always have fun vintage apparel and accessories! Shoes! Love!Love you guys!Bumped into Jean of Idiosyncratic Fashionistas and she looked amazing as usual! Always a pleasure to see her!Just as I was about to run out the door, I ran over to the Amalgamated booth which I also have bought from before. The folks are really sweet and their vintage pieces are to die for!
Wish I could buy the whole thing! Loved this vintage sweater! I could channel Jayne Mansfield in this robe! Love love love. If I didn’t already have a coat like this, it would be mine.Till next year loves!
