Brimfield or Bust!

Another May, another trip to Brimfield.

Despite the 3 hour drive, getting up before the sun, walking through dirty fields and fighting the crowds, Brimfield did not disappoint. The antiques, vintage clothing and cast of characters were all blast. Here are some highlight pics from what stood out (including some colorful vendors and playful patterns):

Not to mention the insanely affordable Danish mid-century "Risom-like" chairs, Chanel blouses, Cowhide chairs and couches, vintage french provincial arm chairs, and more. Seeing the occasionally random celebrity searching for some good finds (actor Josh Charles looking at Persian rugs? Really?)was fun, too. Finding a cheap copy of a PPD piece was kind of flattering as well but was overall I was happy to walk away with some new purchases that didn't break the bank.

Back to Basics

Everyone who knows my fashion sensibility KNOWS I love Jack Purcell sneakers. They are the quintessential simple chic shoe. Comfy, practical, goes with anything. I think I have owned them since High School. They border on geeky but with a cool vibe, don't you think?  I can't seem to stop wearing my JP's this week.
