Flea market in Brooklyn

I wish on the Worship Worthy website, which has hot stuff and they have a great article on a Brooklyn Flea Market.



20,000 people can’t be wrong. The Brooklyn Flea is this summer’s Sunday post-brunch spot!

The folks of Brownstoner.com have started the Flea just in time as Chelsea’s flea markets continue to dwindle due to new developments. The Brooklyn Flea takes place every Sunday - rain or shine - and boasts 40,000 square feet of records, clothes, jewelry, crafts, and more in the lot of Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School in Fort Greene. Each week the Flea has almost 200 vendors of vintage furniture, clothing and antiques alongside new designs by local makers of everything from jewelry to textiles.

Stop by the 3G Kicks booth for vintage Air Force 1s and look out for great furniture finds like Eames rockers or Nelson clocks. The Demolition Depot has recovered items from all sorts of old buildings, including some church lecterns that would make a great alternative to a coffee table for displaying books.

If you are famished from successful shopping, the Flea has cupcakes from Kumquat Cupcakery and goodies from Choice Market, and has plans to add more food vendors soon. While snacking you can visit the SavePolaroid.com booth and learn what you can do to keep the film in production.

While the selection is already immense, the Flea wants your opinion. Visit Brownstoner’s Brooklyn Flea blog for updates on what to expect as well as a chance to share what you liked, disliked, and have to have.

The Brooklyn Flea
Sundays from 10am-5pm
Lafayette and Vanderbilt Ave
Fort Greene

daisy in "Willy"
















If i am not at work or school, you can find me in Brooklyn!
I can only be little, shy, loud, crazy, wild, loving, fashionable...be...me! So don't try to put me in your little box, throw a cover over it and say you understand me!
Simplicity is the art i wish not to conform to...sorry!

Summer look

Coachella is upon us, and while this might not mean much to our readers who aren’t decamping for the grassy lawns of Indio's Empire Polo Fields, we bet that many of you have some sort of spring/summer music festival plans. Whether you’re planning on worshiping Prince this weekend, catching Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings at Bonnaroo, or watching the Gnarls Barkley boys do their thing at Lollapalooza, you need outfits that will keep you cool without forsaking style.



We’ve put together two possibilities that will work for most of your traditional music festivals. Of course, those Glastonbury-attending gals who read WhoWhatWearDaily.com know that it's likely they’re in for another year of glorious mud, and as such, they should look into Hunters and waterproof rain jackets instead!

1. Ray-Ban Outdoorsman Aviator Sunglasses ($129)
Underneath everything, we’re pretty practical gals, which is why we’re so enamored with these sunglasses. The hook-like frames hook behind your ears, anchoring the shades to your head so you don’t lose them while engaging in some mid-afternoon dance session. Genius!

2. Opening Ceremony Henley One-Piece ($437)
A romper/playsuit is the perfect piece for an all-day outdoor festival because it’s the perfect mixture of fashion-forward and fuss-free. The above one-piece is by Opening Ceremony and is a stunning gray hammered silk. If you fear you’d thrash it to shreds, try the slightly sturdier Sparkle & Fade Brushed Onesie ($32) in midnight.

3. DV by Dolce Vita Carnival 19 Sandals ($65)
The likelihood of getting some tan lines is high, so you’ll want to skip those really elaborate gladiators when getting ready for a music fest. Something simple, likes these mahogany leather slingbacks won’t leave you regretting your choice of footwear.

4. M.A.C Nail Lacquer ($10)
If you’ve been thinking about trying something other than your usual Ballet Slippers or Sugar Daddy pale pinks, now is the time to do it! Play with a new shade like the above hot pink shade (it’s called Steamy for those inquiring minds) or some other trendy color that you don’t normally wear.

5. Diane von Furstenberg Hori Blouse ($198)
The perfect top for an outdoor music festival is something lightweight and airy, like this sublime peapod green blouse from Diane von Furstenberg. Like the romper, this blouse is breathable silk and has a drawstring waist and cuffs.

6. Hollister Country Line Shorts ($34.50)
If you don’t have a super worn in pair of jean shorts already—which you should—then immediately pick up some like these lightweight and light wash cutoffs from Hollister. We also would like to tactfully suggest trying on a size or two bigger than you normally wear, because skintight shorts are a loathsome look (and uncomfortable too).

7. Mia Enchantress Sandals ($60)
These sandals are elegant and pleasantly affordable too! The slim straps add interest to the sleek shape and the braid detailing is a nice touch. The sandals are available in a soft pewter color, as shown above, or a pale metallic gold, which is also attractive.

8. Forever 21 Beaded Glam Bangles ($9 each)
There’s something glamorous and earthy about these simple beaded bangles. While an arm of monochromatic bracelets wouldn’t look bad, we like the look of contrasting bangles better.


When I was checking my mail this came up and i thought i need to spread it!

daisy.....




























Daisy is my new tag name for spring!
Daisy, imagine walking the street smelling like Marc Jacobs Daisy, a fedora hat, and a fun sun dress! Girls, before it gets to late...you have to stock up on cheap shoes (i.e. wedges are in), fun hats that can be worn day and night, and the well fit spring dress that makes you feel and look amazing. It time we enjoy our selfs with out being surrounded by a bunch of loser...dress up, get a cupcake, jump on your bike, go to the museum, go to dinner, or just go to the park! Just live your life like it is golden!

i use to be...


I used to be a poet before i fell in the love with fashion! Poetry was my way out, it was the only way for me to express myself...to express my being! It was my song...i sang all day long walking down the street. Fashion is my being.. Simplicity is the art, i wish not to conform to...so when you see me walking in the train or walking down the street...respect my style...respect my being!

building your fashion library








My visual teachers always said, as a fashion student or a person who likes to look good, you should build your library. If you buy it at a museum or Ebay, you need to build your library and educated yourself on the history on fashion. When doing a project on Ralph Lauren, i came across this beautiful and huge book on Ralph Lauren life, career, and his collections. Another good books is Chanel:The Couturiere at Work, which I own myself and i love it! Just a simple book that i bought at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and you can purchase it at Barnes&Noble website.
Start building your coffee table books!!!

Fad back to ...what



Being a fashion student, you have different genre of fashion. You have you colorful girls, you simple floral girls, and keep it simple stupid all black, but the thing that make us special is that we all love fashion!
Talking to some fashionista in the city, i ask a simple question..."Describe the way you dress?" And i get the same answer..."i dress based on how i feel that day"!
The yellow brick road series continues...for spring it is all about keeping it simple, alot of florals, and don't forget a slash of color!
Share a picture of what your spring closet will look like!!
From my closet, to yours!

Yellow Brick Road in London




For the record my trip to London was amazing...and i think everyone should at least visit it! I saw the Eye of London, Big Ben, the Palace... and all the sight seeing spots but my favorite was in East London. East London would be the East Village for New York City which is very artsy and very creative. You saw more creative outfit even if it was a skirt with mustard tights and a blue cardigan..you saw the creativity! You never saw a lot of name dropping with outfits compare to New York but i loved it!

more pictures at the museum





Victoria and Albert Museum







































































In my stay in London, the Victoria and Albert Museum got to receive my presents...lol...seriously it was a beautiful museum where fashion is splashed all over.
I enjoyed this museum so much just because the costumes was amazing with the different eras and different fashion capitals.
If you are ever in London, this is a must see museum and the location is
V&A South Kensington
Cromwell Road
London SW7 2RL
