The Look: Neon + Flowers

Fun Fact: I just got this vintage motorcycle leather hat from the Bouckville Antique show that we went to in Upstate New York. It was kinda funny because I am known for accidentally putting on lots of vendor's hats at flea markets and them saying to me..."Sorry that's my hat, that's not for sale!"  This hat that I'm wearing was the vendor's hat that he got at a motorcycle bar. After I complimented him on it, he said I could have it for $10 bucks because I liked it so much!  How could I refuse?!

Caillianne- Union Jack Flag + Vintage

Dress- Vintage Vivienne Westwood flag collection dress from Nomad Vintage from The Chelsea Garage in NY
Belt- Silver Balenciaga belt from The Balencaiga store in NY
Sunglasses- Limited edition Ray-Ban Sunglasses gifted from Ray-Ban
Necklace- Vintage Carole Tanenbaum necklace from The Carole Tanenbaum Vintage Collection in Toronto
Bag-  Blue faux fur Prada bag from the Prada store in Toronto
Shoes- Sparkly Silver Miu Miu clogs from Neiman Marcus in NY

The Look:  Union Jack + Vintage

Fun Fact: Essie just sent us all of their new Fall and Winter nail colors and we are obsessed! I just couldn't wait for winter, so I am wearing the color "Size Matters" and it's the perfect red. It looks kinda vampire-esque and mysterious and it goes perfect with my vintage Westwood dress. It's not in stores yet, so keep your eyes out for it! Our friend Katie owns Nomad Vintage and she has the BEST vintage ever! You can visit her in the Chelsea Garage on the weekend or by appointment... she is the coolest! I couldn't get over this Vivienne Westwood dress when I saw it. It reminded me of her Union Jack flag carpet she designed for the Rug Company. It's a parachute type dress with strips of blue cotton canvas sewn to the Union Jack flag. I think it's from the early 90's or late 80's and it even has fake white printed paint on it! Pin It Now!

Roadtrip to Bouckville!

We went on a weekend adventure/road trip to Upstate New York to the coolest flea market called The Madison Bouckville Show! It was one of the hottest days of the summer at a sweltering 40 degrees Celsius (aka 104 degrees Fahrenheit!!!!) and there were thousands and thousands of flea market vendors! We didn't expect the flea market to be so big, packed with vendors and with so many treasures. It was really fabulous because they put up these huge striped carnival tents for shade. Danielle, our amazing friend came on the trip and we had a blast walking around for hours and hours finding the coolest things! We totally fell in love with the 100 year old grain sacks (that we turned into pillows for the bed), Navajo jewelry, got an old tin knight and a few quirky hats.  Bouckville, New York is one of the most beautiful flea markets around. The scenery is crazy beautiful with the most perfect rolling hills and cornfields. It was a fabulous road trip and Bouckville's name is now turned to "BECKY-ville" because we were in TOTAL flea market heaven and will be back next year!

H&M and Vitamin Daily Style Contest!- Vote for us :)

We teamed up with H&M and Vitamin Daily to style a mannequin at H&M in our most favourite pieces from their Fall 2011 Collection! We had the best time styling our mannequin head to toe in a back to school look mixed with grungey plaids and the Upper East side. We layered a dress with striped long sleeves, a vest and a jacket to complete a total Fall look. We also love mixing different color plaids together to create a Rock Royalty look. We used an oversized plaid vest to complete the look with grey thigh highs and that awesome bowler hat. (That we both ended up bringing home!) We also gave our mannequin some hand drawn red lips! Hahaha!!! So she is super kissable! Orange is soo in for Fall, so we threw H&M's 1960's inspired coat over her shoulders, used orange bow bracelets and put an orange tassel necklace on her bag as her bag charm.
