Sliding in the with just a few hours to spare this month is July’s Taking it to the Streets MuuMuu of the Month!

Straight from the streets of ATL…really straight from the trails of the ATL BeltLine.

A bike, a muumuu and some public art is all a girl really needs on an amazing summer day!

Very Vera

Vera 2

When I see her classic signature and her iconic ladybug mark on a piece of cloth I get irrationally excited…as if I am out panning for gold and just scored an epic nugget that will break the scales! Just curious…does this happen to anyone else???

I truly can’t resist the force field that pulls me to Vera Neumann anything…I am all in always! Which has resulted in a healthy cloth napkin and scarf collection.

Any worthy treasure hunt comes out with a few Vera pieces, so here are my most recent finds. In my previous Flower Power post I mentioned my friends at Swift and Faire…well they struck again with pulling me in with this chic shirt from Vera.

May MuuMuu of the Month

MAY MMOTM

So there…April showers totally delivered on May flowers in more ways than one!!!

Not only did these happy California poppies come out and play so did this fantastic vintage Lilly Pulitzer floral frock.

Happy May,

Pattern Palooza

PP 1

PP 2

These are the patterns and prints that didn’t come home with me from Brimfield but still inspired me. Shocking, I know but even this more is more girl couldn’t bring home anymore!

As they famously say a picture says a thousand words, so here are 9,000 words.

So much pattern…so much inspiration…so much to share…so here goes!

incredibly inspired,

Flower Power…

Kapow!!!  That’s the sound of Flower Power with a Punch…

This Flower Power Punch I speak of is not a refreshment nor is it your soft dainty floral frock where you have visions of proper ladies lunching at a garden party but more of a rowdy Andy Warhol crowd at an amplified pop art gallery opening.

I am sooo crazy in love with my vintage Neiman Marcus palazzo pants from my must stop shop, Swift and Faire, at the fashion tent during the Brimfield show. These crazy cool ladies always have an amazing curated collection of must have’s and these were for sure one of them this round!

Field of Dreams…

Today was the opening day at Brimfield and man did I get my game on! I was locked and loaded with my fanny pack, comfy boots and the will for treasure!

7 hours, 3 disco shirts, 2 dresses, 2 patches and a bounty of jewelry later I find myself wiped out and ready of bed!

Nite Nite,

JSY

smashing success…

okay…so I know it’s still early to call it but I must say switching up how we “do” Brimfield this time is tracking to be pretty fantastic!

Coming in early for the very curated very delightful textile show was a huge win. It had a slightly different vibe than the fields that open up tomorrow but still a great time with treasures to be found in both goods and in people (which is one of my all time favorite things about this show). We also had a chance to hit up some of the local shops as well as exploring nearby towns.

It got real…real fast

And when I say real I mean REAL and when I say real fast I mean and to be more REAL FAST!!!

What got real and how fast is fast you ask?

The real is the Brimfield Antique Show with me shopping for vintage treasures to fill my closet and the real fast was the less than 20 minutes it took before I hit my first big jackpot of a few vintage tops, frocks and palazzo pants!

This is one of the top events that is a must for us every year and I thought the best way to express why would be in true David Letterman style. So here goes…

Top Ten Reason to attend the Brimfield Antique Show

10. the thrill of a treasure hunt

9. a great excuse for a weekend away in an amazing part of the country

8. worlds best french fries and delicious strawberry shortcake and doughnuts

7. the perfect combo of outside time and shopping time

6. vintage jewelry, handbags, sunglasses and clothes

5. amazing muumuu hunting

4. great venue to sport a fanny pack

3. meeting and connecting with great people

2. design inspiration everywhere

1. did I mention vintage jewelry, handbags, sunglasses and clothes

I was so busy hunting through all of the treasures, chatting with both new and old friends  and taking all of the amazingness in that I slacked on the photo taking but will share what I did capture on this wonderful excursion.

See you in September Brimfield,

JSY
