Indian Summer at the District Flea
Posted: Oct 11 2013
Brought to Washington by New York's famed Brooklyn Flea, the District Flea is making its debut in DC for a trial run in the city's up-and-coming Shaw neighborhood. On one of the hottest days this fall, a group of friends perused DC's finest consignment, antique, and vintage goods in style...
Isabelle, in town visiting Sophie, our Creative Director, is no stranger to market finds. She gets her great eye for finding diamonds in the rough from her mom who has Princeton's most exciting consignment store, Jane. It's no wonder her vintage accessories (yes, that vintage Chanel bag) are pretty awesome. After traveling from Hong Kong to London to Nairobi working in investment banking and retail consulting, Isabelle has finally landed back in New York City where she works for a retail investment fund. She walked away from the market with a gorgeous bronze folding peacock fire screen for her new Manhattan digs.
Corey, close friend of Tuckernuck and always in the know about the freshest activities to try out in DC, was on the hunt for some accents for her Georgetown apartment. Don't let her gorgeous maxi dress fool you. Corey did some heaving lifting and walked away with some gorgeous vintage trunks (a perfect TV stand!)
Grace recently moved to DC where she works for an organization that promotes and facilitates democracies abroad. While Grace loves to travel and last called Cameroon her home, she usually stays true to her classic, new england roots when it comes to her style. We love how she paired her striped dress with a vintage-feeling statement necklace.
Laura, visiting from Alabama, is a lab technician at Dauphin Island Sea Lab. She usually spends her time between collecting samples in the Gulf of Mexico and cataloging her findings in the lab, so she likes to look put together whenever she gets the opportunity to put on something other than a lab coat or fishing jump suit. She managed to make her blue skater dress look daytime causal by throwing on a chambray shirt beneath it.
