The Crop Top style has been welcomed with open arms to Spring/Summer 2013! It seems like a few trends have continued on into the new year; which is nice considering us fashionistas spend a great deal of money on quality statement pieces. This Spring/Summer we will see the crop top; however, it will remain fresh and not over-saturated because there is such versatility to this look…

Playing Dress-up

1980’s Wedding Dress

I am not a superstitious individual; therefore, I had no problem dressing in this 80’s wedding dress (guess I’m never getting married now). This dress along with many other vintage treasure is apart of the Old Soul Vintage collection. For purchase orders email oldsoulfashion@gmail.com or visit on Instagram!

 

Old is New again.

Pier 94, NYC will be hosting an Antique Trade Show & Fashion Alley presented by Stella Shows. As I mentioned in the past, I have been collecting vintage clothing, accessories, and footwear; however, this ‘hobby’ has slowly become an obsession of mine.

That being said, everyone who appreciates vintage fashion as much as me should not miss this weekend at the Pier. It’s beyond inspirational to see a group of 500 diverse vendors in one huge space. I feel so lucky to be apart of this. My booth number is 2176 located in the Fashion Alley. Come check it out!

Sensation: Innerspace USA

Sensation Innerspace launches an All-White Tech-House Party at Barclays Center

This weekend, amidst the Halloween parties and ‘Sandy’ chaos, the European music festival, Sensation made it’s U.S. debut in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center.

Thousands of people filled Brooklyn streets in white, Including myself. Fuck the Halloween Costumes, it was all about representing white – the audience became one in this spiritual experience. The night took you on a journey throughout the seven stages of enlightenment, enabling you to concentrate on the present releasing all your worries through hard techno beats. My favorite by far was Fedde, although 2000 and One and Mark Knight Killed it with their versatile performance.

The line up Saturday night:

Mr. White, Danny Tenaglia, 2000 and One Fedde le Grand, & Mark Knight

Not only was the venue perfect, but the overall prodcution was beyond flawless.  The lineup was an inspirational/talented group of DJ’s that honestly took the crowd to heaven. At one point I turned to my friend and told her that I have died and gone to heaven.

Fireworks, rain, endless fog, lasers upon lasers, and my favorite part, massive glow balls that constantly dropped to the audience at different levels spinning higher into the ceiling each time filling the Barclays Center. Overall, it was the best show I have ever experienced. Rumor has it that Sensation may appear in LA of next year. Stay tuned folks.

Old Soul Vintage

After a day of shopping my mom always wants to see what I have purchased. She always looks at me like I have five heads after I reveal my treasures. Why? Because I am always coming home with inexpensive vintage. She always shakes her head in amazement and whispers, “you have such an old soul.” Hence, ‘Old Soul Vintage’ is a recent project I have become so passionate about.

I am starting my own vintage business literally as I type to you all! I have been collecting for quite sometime and invest at least three days a week of vintage shopping. As many of you already know, Pier 94 hosts one of the biggest antique & Fashion Alley trade shows twice a year. Well, I recently got approved to sell my goods there!
