Vintage Shopping with Mid-Century Pink!

Brooklyn Flea Market
The last time my family and I went to a Flea Market was in Brooklyn almost a year ago. Today Mid-Century Pink, a fellow NY vintage gal and blogger, meet up with me and little crew at the Brooklyn Flea Market in Williamsburg. 

Boy, was it chilly today! I refused to wear my coat! Simply refused!!! I mean, it's Spring, right? I managed to throw on a jean jacket I had and packed the babies up and off we went! We met LaToya from Mid-Century Pink and oh my-what a sweetie she is! A lot of New Yorkers tend to be sarcastic and jaded but LaToya was the exact opposite. My children took to her easily and I think my bunny girl and LaToya bonded over their passion for the color pink hehe I loved it! I love seeing my children develop relationships with other people. It's a sight to behold.

But before we go any further with the day, I have to share with you what I wore. It was my very first time dressing up 1950's style and first time wearing a vintage hat in New York. It defiantly takes some getting used to. My dressed is a cotton dress purchased on Etsy from lapoubellevintage, which ironically happens to be a seller from Brooklyn! I love my dress! 
Here is a closer look at the details of my dress:
I recently shared a post about What is in Your Make Up Bag?, this is one of the lipsticks in mine. It is from Wet 'n Wild and cost under TWO dollars. Hey, shows you don't have to spend a million bucks to look it! I love it-they have such pretty shades. 
This is the hat I wore. I am loving headband hats! You really don't need to try them on and they fit most sized heads. I purchased this also from Etsy from a seller caleld soulrustI love the colors of this hat-I am leaning on collecting basics colors of both 40s/50s hats but at the end of the day I honestly don't want to own fifty hats. It sounds nice but not when you don't like clutter LOL
Oh and ekkk on the close up of my hair-I refuse to dye my hair but I know one day I will have to. Consider this a bonding moment-I am sharing all my glorious white hairs with the world to see LOL

Aren't LaToya and I adorable hehe My hubby caught a shot of us while we were shopping around the Flea Market
 Here are some things we saw while walking around the flea market. This gift box is so neat-its a pinup girl-I loved it! For blog purposes I put stars to give this pinup a more demure look but you get the picture hehe
 LaToya scored this amazing cup and saucer set!! From the 1950's! Isn't this super fab!!! Whoot!
 I saw a lot of cute kitchen items that had me drooling. I so wish I knew what color we were going to repaint our kitchen...grrrrrrrrrrr Isn't this set adorable??
 Afterwards we headed off to Buffalo Exchange and continued our search for some vintagey goodness.
 Our last shop was called Monk's Vintage Thrift Shop. We couldn't resist going in especially since it was right next door to Buffalo Exchange. And there was a sofa right in front-I just had to get a photo in of myself and my bunny girl.
I walked out empty handed from both shops but it's okay. It was lots of fun to just look around and see what was out there. I did purchase one neat thing from the flea market but I will share that with you all tomorrow.

It really was a lovely day spent with the sweetest new friend and my family in tow. After lots of vintage shopping and a lovely lunch...I ask myself a day cannot get any better than that, can it? We are already looking into making another outing soon. I hope this time the weather behaves itself a little better. hehe

Overall, I am so glad we took our children out to the shops. The boys were sooo good in their stroller and my bunny girl had so much fun she actually fell asleep in the car on our way home. Um, that NEVER happens LOL

I leave you all with a final photo of LaToya and I. Doesn't see look smashing in pink!!
