Photos | Arts District LA - Fashion, Art, and Design Flea

As part of a Sunday funday mission with the girls

we didn't have to venture far to check out the LA FAD Show (fashion, art, and design), a special collaboration market between The LA Girl & the weekly Arts District Flea Market. The Arts District, near our neck of downtown, is a super vibrant neighborhood characterized by all sorts of...well...street art! It's a painter's playground. 

Walking into the The Arts District Flea, you realize it's not your typical flea market. You won't see random old house junk or ratty clothes on display, but rather unique jewelry, crafty handmade items, well-made clothing, carefully selected vintage and antique goods, paintings by and design by local artisans, and original photography. It gave me an artsy Brooklyn-esque vibe as we browsed through the booths jamming to all the DJ's tunes, from Michael Jackson to Jeremih, unexpectedly letting the dollars fly when we spotted gems that we just needed in our lives. 

It was like a real life Etsy marketplace, which, considering my obsession with Etsy, was such a delightful shopping experience. 

The LA FAD show specifically was a one time partnership, but the Arts District Flea in general is open is open each and every weekend from 11:00AM to 7:00PM on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at: 

453 Colyton St
Los Angeles, CA 90013

I consider myself a softly eccentric urbanista. I’m quiet by nature, and I’ve generally always had a mellow laid-back vibe. However, when it comes to my preferences for fun, my style, and my overall thought process, I get a bit more eccentric. I like stepping out of the box of normalcy -- but without forcing anything. I’m a thrill junkie and I live for things that get my adrenaline pumping, such as riding on top of party buses in New York City and hanging off of skyscrapers in Vegas. I spring for bold hues, colorful prints and patterns, and a relaxed look that gives effortless-chic. I like exploring new places and capturing exciting sites. I’m a creative, with a million different ideas running through my mind each day. Whether I’m designing waistbeads, imagining up new clothing concepts, envisioning my next business venture, or planning my next adventure abroad, I’m always thinking of how I can create something great. Being raised in the suburbs but not far from the city and constantly traveling, I developed a love for the best of worlds. The calm and the crazy. The easy-going and the always-buzzing. The soft and the eccentric.
