Boozy afternoon, anyone? Yesterday was the #BarefootBubbly fest hosted at the gorgeous Simon House in Beverly Hills. We indulged in everything from fruit-filled cocktails to a watching a special performance by the Aqualilies. After a bit of fun under the sun, I’d probably have to say that secretly one of my favorite parts of the event was discovering a blackberry flatbread that was TO DIE FOR…ingredients above 😉

Museum of “Feels”

When I heard about the Museum of Broken Relationships, I had to place it on my list of museums I MUST visit. Showed up with no expectations, only to be blown away and floored by some of the most despairing love stories, hence, my renaming of “The Museum of Feels.” For those of you who haven’t heard of this museum, essentially, people can donate items from their past relationships and have them displayed along with their stories to share.

The stories ranged from a woman wearing fake breasts while having sex because that’s the only way her significant other could get off. SO, naturally, she donated them after they broke up…  and then a story about an older lady whose husband passed and donated all of his cologne bottles as she couldn’t throw them away. Guys, I would go on to tell you more but this is one museum you have to come and see for yourself.

At the end, you leave either reflecting on how minimal your greatest heartbreaks were or realizing that you should probably dig up that piece of history from your ex that you know would make a great piece of art in the exhibit. #thefeels

VINTAGE EXTRAVAGANZA

A Current Affair Pop-up vintage marketplace was an extraordinary event, to say the least. Not only did we awe at the deliciously curated collections but we snatched up whatever we could at the early showing.

Alan hit “gold” when he found a vintage moto jacket, truly made to fit, found at @Trustfund21.Trustfund21 was mine and Alan’s favorite store by far as we not only picked up his moto jacket, I picked up some fabulous baubles as well! I’ll be sure to pick up some more vintage pieces on their Etsy site. (photos 2-7)

Next stop was The Goods <3 NY. Their beautiful collection of vintage Chanel was spectacular and their jewelry was meant to be bought by the stack! (photos 8-10)

Not too far later, we were drawn to Ordunadesign and her meticulously hand crafted metal and leather masterpieces. Not only were we interested in her craft, we were amazed by her history in the business. Beth Orduna, designer and creator, had been in the game for 2 decades and pioneered such innovations such as pearls on leather, tattered silk-wrapped gems, and reticulated metals with a Mexican influence.

Jessica Seaton‘s jewelry was to die for! I picked up 3 of her golden hand sculpted rings all to create one perfect stack of art. Her jewelry was beautifully displayed and I’m looking forward to more of her amazing pieces in the future. (photos 16-20)

When it comes to sunglasses, The Guise Archives  had it all! From classic frames to vintage Persol, Alan had a blast trying them all on. We definitely know where to find our next one-of-a kind frames. (photos 21-24)

Our last few stops included the free spirited Adored Vintage (photos 25-27), Salvage Life (photos 31-33) where I picked up a vintage sequence top, and finally Marie Monsod (photos 28-30) where I found the most amazing golden bag. I must say that our experience at our first ever A Current Affair was one to remember; A place where we enjoyed the company of the humble and artful owners, friendly bartenders, and fellow vintage lovers.
