Mondette & L.A. Vintage Exchange Holiday Spree

me & the fabulous Courtney of L.A. Vintage Exchange (shop her Etsy for great vintage finds!)

This past weekend, Mondette and L.A. Vintage Exchange saved the day for those last minute shoppers looking to purchase gifts that were not only within their budgets but that also fit the one-of-a-kind bill.  Despite the rain, Melanie and I headed to Space 15 Twenty in Hollywood, finding an array of vendors selling everything from jewelry and vintage clothing to books and cute ceramic holders.  And the best part?  Everything was less than $50.

Melanie is wearing an Urban Outfitters blazer, Zara sweater, Urban Renewal shorts and (not pictured) Steve Madden boots.

great vintage pieces from Los Angeles store Weltenbuerger

To brave the rainy weather, I wore an Urban Renewal sweater, H&M faux leather skinny pants, and my Urban Outfitters boots and hat.  Wearing blue jeans with the striped sweater would be too predictable, which is why I mixed it up with my faux leather skinnies.  Plus, I didn’t have to worry about getting my pants wet in the rain since they’re water-resistant.

my new Jenny Dayco necklace (perfect for layering!)


Can we toast to 3.5 day work weeks?  Hallelujah!

    This looks awesome, Becs!!! And I can’t believe it was all under $50! I’m tres jealous and wish we had something similar in the ATL. Sure we do the festival thing, but things get pricey. Lurve your hat and boots too- and you make me wish I could pull-off the leather/pleather pants look ;)

    I love the Bev Hills one. :) Paris Hilton’s aunt is on that- I swear she reminds me of Demi Moore, no?

    How have you been, doll?

    This looks like such a cool event! I love the necklace you picked up. The photos all look great, did you get a new camera??

    Rain repellant pants might be the smartest thing ever, I hear it’s raining biblical style in Southern CA right now!

    xoxo, Ashley
