Second Sunday

CONGRAATS to the flaxen goddess HAINE for winning the contest over at  VOGUE GONE ROGUE. While her blonde BEAUTY, cool style and professionally done photo was hands-down the winning entry, Kristy Elena gave me Honorable Mention. I ACTUALLY CAME IN SECOND PLACE!

So a big THANK YOU to all those voted for me. I'm so touched by the many of you who rallied on my behalf, including a handful of dudes who wouldn't normally visit a fashion blog. THANK YOU!

A big shout out to the other contestants who include the immensely popular LOUD MOUTH, BROOKLYN'S BRITCHES , and HAUTE & FIERCE. I feel truly honored to have made it to the final 5 with the likes of lovely you.

Today is "Second Sunday."

Like "Second Saturdays," it is a monthly event, not to be missed. Yesterday for Second Saturday, I went to the Midtown Bazaar and sampled the edibles at the market. I was not disappointed. Of special note was the crazy good Toffee Cookie, made by Gram's Cookies. Gram makes the most delicious cookies I've ever tasted in my life, and is the sweetest little Gram'ma I've ever met! Her cookies are made with love and you can taste it. 

Second Sunday is a large outdoor antique fair that tastes place close to my neighborhood. At the edge of midtown, underneath the canopy of a freeway overpass, hundreds of antique dealers and sellers have set up shop and sell a vast assortment of goods. This is a regular destination for many antique dealers and interior designers, and there are scores of vintage gems waiting to be discovered here. So, if you're in the area, and love antiques and vintage, be sure to swing the Sacramento Antique Fair. Click here for more details.

Congrats on coming in 2nd!! You deserved every vote. I loved the way you mixed pattern and texture into your outfit and overall you're just an amazing member of the blogging community.
I had so much fun taking part in the blog event and feel like we all came out winners. It was a true success in so many ways, but especially because we all got to meet so many other inspirational bloggers in the process. I would do it again in a heart beat! Love from Canada! xx

@ Brooke (of Brooklyn's Britches) & Stephanie (of the Loudmouth) it was an honor to be in the top 5 with you two. You both have great personal style, and I look forward to my next visit to each of your blogs.

Photodiarist: you just put the biggest smile on my face. I always love your photos so any compliment from you means a whole lot to me. Thank-you!

And hello Midtown Girl! You're a New Yorker like PhotoD, aren't you? Well thank you for your kind comment and visit. LOVE your big city style by the way, pure urban lovliness!
