StyleSpotting: Melrose Trading Post

Jen is a Ford Model & Fashion Blogger. (More on her style below).

The Market & Me – I rarely hit flea markets these days, but had to stop by this one over a couple weekends for specific jewelry tools. I spotted Jen (above) plus Olivia and 2 stars of Showtime’s The Real L Word you’ll meet after the jump. Jen’s a model and Fashion Blogger at agogofashion, who’s wearing Forever 21 overalls, Jeffrey Campbell boots and vintage. [You can vote on her outfit I guest shot for RackedLA.] At fleas, she’s always on the lookout for vintage rocker tees that her beau cuts up for her, silver jewelry and records. As I spotted her, said beau was surprising her with a vintage Pink Floyd tee shirt he’d just bought for her.

Catch more Sunday styles after the jump. 

Who wears short shorts?

It’s Showtime! I ran into The Real L Word reality stars Sara Bettencourt & controversial Whitney Mixter. Coincidentally, the show’s second season premiered that same night and OMFG – these 2 have one of the raciest scenes you’ll ever see on TV. (Just record it already and report back. You’re welcome). Whitney’s jeans were cool and she’s wearing Palladium Boots I’ve mentioned here before.

She was too stylish in her maxi dress, leather jacket and Alexander Wang Marion Sling Bag.

The cool kids (both genders, by the way) are wearing MCM. They’re contemplating boots here and I’m perplexed by the jewelry embedded in her wrist and his ring.

Olivia used to sport a head of green hair, but I got the impression that her mother was trying to persuade her to change it back and that this might’ve been her compromise. With her Marc Jacobs bag, she was a fun mix of preppy punk.

I mean, fur is cheaper in the summer, so…

A strange combo of sorts, but I thought pairing socks with espadrilles was inspired, adorable and that she pulled it off with aplomb. I’m also nuts for green right now, especially blue/green combos. Instead of hitting the flea yesterday, I forced myself away from my usual places and ended up meeting a Swedish singer, fun stylist and inventive designer you’ll be meeting here soon. Have a good week…

Obsessed with the Alexander Wang Marion sling bag! I seriously can’t get enough of it.

Hi Minty, thanks for the note and good to hear from you. That Chloe bag on your site is killing me! Must have.

Hi Melissa,

I would love to have one of these bags, too and love shooting them. Thanks for your nice note… Jerri
