this weekend, i couldn’t wait to wear my brand new nadinoo dress! the moment i laid eyes on it, i knew it would have to be mine. i see a sailor collar, i have to have it! so this is what i wore sunday for a fun day at the alameda flea market. it’s usually on the first sunday of every month, but because of the rain last weekend, they pushed the date back. and it couldn’t have been a better day for a flea market, with sunny skies and a gentle breeze. i scored some pretty awesome loot including a beautiful blue and purple floral cocktail dress from the 1950s (for only $15?!) and a couple of darling 1960s hats among other things. i also decided to take street style photos of some of the fashionable ladies i saw browsing through the rows of antiques, and got a few really cute shots that i can’t wait to share with you! and in the process, i met a few people who actually read my blog and had some really nice conversations! it really made my day!
then after the flea market me and the boy went back to our neighborhood in oakland and snapped a few pictures by lake merritt. i’ve mentioned it before, but we live about 3 blocks from this lake! i just rarely have photos of it because there are always so many people hanging around and as i was mentioning last week, i just get so shy about taking photos in public. but after having been approaching strangers for street style photos all day, i was feeling pretty gutsy!
