This coming weekend some girlfriends and I are going to check out the Rose Bowl Flea Market for the first time. I’ve heard it’s amazing, but also that it can be a little bit overwhelming. For that reason it’s probably good to go with a couple of specific things in mind, just not to get carried away.
Aside from anything that jumps out as the perfect Christmas present for someone I love, I’m going with two very specific items in mind.
For the last couple of years I’ve been on the look-out for the perfect soft leather jacket – something feminine but with just enough edge. Caramel and beige colours always appeal, as I think the black might be too tough for my look, but I’m always really taken in by strange colours as well like greens or greys.
The other item is a chunky ‘boyfriend’ watch. I don’t usually wear a watch but I love the way these look, I wore a silver one for about a year and loved the ‘cuff’ feel on my wrist and the bonus of knowing what time it is without checking my phone!
