As I mentioned in my last post, I’m making the trek out to Pasadena on Sunday for the Rose Bowl Flea Market and I can barely wait. With over 2,500 vendors, it can be quite overwhelming, but after nearly two years of attendance, I’ve finally figured out the best places to browse. While it does require some discipline (going out on Saturday night is not an option), I always return home with great little gems that are fashionable, cheap and almost always one-of-a-kind. Not only is it known as the shopping place of the stars (I’ve bumped into Adrian Grenier and Katherine Heigl to name a couple), but nearly everyone in attendance is a young hipster with impeccable style. I quickly realized that my 4-year old, super-functional ‘Bank of America’ tote would not suffice, which is why I became enamored with this Suede Fringe Passport Bag. With a convenient zipper on the top, and a long strap that can be worn across one’s body, it’s a great size to hold all my cash, while still appearing relaxed and chic.
