Guy Trebay recently wrote “Scavengers on the Urban Savannah” for The New York Times. The article is about the massive market that features 170 vendors. My favorite is former Lane Bryant retail associate’s, Glenn Marla, comments on plus size vintage.

The article has a lot of fun interactive components and the market looks awesome. Brooklyn Flea just opened this April. It is the largest flea market in New York City and is open every Sunday a block away from Dekalb Avenue’s resturant row.

If you want to see some beautiful fashion photography from the 20’s to 40’s, visit Lee Miller’s exhibition currently at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

I wrote a review of the collection for The Whit. Information about Miller, the exhibition, and the museum can be found there. “Photo legend Lee Miller’s work at Philly Museum”

“The Neck” by Man Ray or Lee Miller? Photograph courtesy of the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Spring/Summer 08 Kate Moss line

Kate Moss’s Spring/Summer 08 line for Top Shop launches March 18. But you can get a sneak peak right now at Kate Moss Topshop.

She was inspired by travel (Ibiza-India), Aztec, and the 1940s. It looks like her designs really range in this collection, everything from boho to chic, not “boho-chic.” That phrase is so dumb. But I am really excited for some online shopping.

When will Topshop come to Jersey?

Don’t just dress vintage, dance vintage.

For anyone who ever dreamed of traveling back to simpler times, been intrigued by the scenery or dress of Seurat’s painting, or just wants to trade the “bump and grind” of dance today for ballroom waltz with a Darcey-like lad or a graceful gal; Spring Festival in Cape May, NJ is the event for you.

The 12th annual 10-day festival starts Friday, April 25th. Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts hosts a variety of dinners, theatrical performances, tours, workshops, and dances. One of the festival’s most popular events is the Vintage Dance Weekend, which starts on Saturday, April 26th.

“The Vintage Dance Weekend has always been part of the festival,” said Communications Coordinator Margo Harvey. “It’s really a great opportunity for visitors to experience and learn a way and form of dancing like they danced in Cape May more than 125 years ago.”
