Salvage ATL

Ello! Ello! Its Salvage ATL time of the year again so spring is definitely here. I sure spotted some new faces and vendors this time around at the Salvage fair and very interesting 'curios'. This morning I left with strict instructions not to buy anything :( We have a rather daunting task of transporting our (my) large curio collection (as AD called my lovely treasures!) to NYC in less that two months. I am not allowed to buy anything besides food until end of June. It is however hard to resist such a wonderful spread of vintage items and beautifully reconstructed jewelry pieces, not to mention super friendly store owners. I did secretly get a big sunflower brooch, something I wanted for a long time...shhh....


I absolutely loved the jewelry pieces from Sincerely Smitten, plus the name has a nice ring to it! Recycled eye testing glass, old watches and all things vintage recycled into lovely pendants and delicately put together. 

Foxboxes had some great products, my favorite being the map flasks. Great personalized present idea for a bachelor night or wedding favors for guys :) 

Sarah Watts has some really cool vintagesque aprons, screen printed tea towels and posters for the kitchen. I can't wait to get some stuff from here when we make our cozy curio filled home!  

I finally got to wear my new Betty Draper dress that I bought in Thailand. The blue pointy suede shoes were an unbelievable $4 from Little Five! We just celebrated our first anniversary, and sure enough AD has got to know me a lot better :) He got me the pearl tea pot pendant that I am so obsessed with... Funnily after Salvage we went for some bubble tea at Honey Bubble, my new tea haunt. 

PS: The very last picture is mind boggling I know. It is a cup with ice tea bubbles inside an ice cube, which made my friend Uma (a fellow bubble mania enthusiast) really excited! 

PSS:: Thanks you James for modelling! I like the aloof 'look away' pose :)

Pearly bib

Etsy is one of my favorite fashion spotting haunts. In fact, half my pinning on pinterest is from Etsy! Fashington Press Pinterest stalking link right here!

So when I saw the collar bib phenomenon taking Etsy over, I had my heart set on a grungy metal collar or an elegant pearl collar. My recent trip to NYC took me to Topshop, where I fell in love with this pearl beauty!

My favorite looks with this bib are either worn over an LBD or a vintage t-shirt as a collar, or as a bib as shot here.

Stay tuned for styling options with the pearly bib, and If you have one of your own...lets hear about it.

Delicate color blocking

Today's resolution- No Photoshop! Yes nothing has been photo-shopped on this shoot which is very unusual at The Fashington Press..Adding filters and sorts are so tempting in the era of Instagram. This project was about taking pictures on a DSLR with the right settings and keeping true with the GREENS and the BLUES. 
With so much color blocking on the High Street, here is a subtle version with bi chromatic colors. Love 80's sporty crop on the feminine skirt shape. 

Top :: Abercrombie & Fitch
Skirt :: Anthropologie
Bag :: Moms closet (as in my mom!)
Sunglasses :: Fred Flare (First Pinterest inspired purchase and under $15!!)
Shoes :: LK Bennett, favorite of our Princess Kate!
Necklace :: Present from a friend

PS :: A lot of self resistance has been used to stop myself from photo-shopping some t-shirt over my six-packs...but then I thought the crop top is only doing its job! Watch think?

PSS :: So really did come first the chicken or the egg?
