One of the joys of New York is people-watching. In particular, fashion-spotting while people-watching. I love to spend time in Brooklyn, especially for that reason. Brooklyn fashion is like no other – it’s effortless, highly individualized, edgy and totally unique. I spent last Sunday brunching and then shopping at the Brooklyn Flea, where I got a huge dose of fashion inspiration, from the vendors to the shoppers.
One trend at the BK Flea was vintage, natch – it’s a flea market! I saw a ton of vintage designer bags (in GREAT condition, I might add), plus funky retro sunglasses, furniture and other little knick knacks. And the best display of ‘vintage’ was a lady I spotted dressed in chic acid-washed jeans, a tube top and print headband. A perfect mix of mod-meets-80’s style! (Later, inspired by the vintage items I spotted, I picked up a funky squiggle print trench coat that I can’t wait to wear!)
But the real trend of the day seemed to be prints, prints and more prints! I spied a fashion-forward couple rocking a variety of paint prints, as well as some other fashionistas sporting fun printed fashions, like stripes mixed with beading and a pop of neon, tribal print dresses and pastel colorblock paired with pastel tie-dye. I rocked an anchor-print dress with contrasting butterfly-print nail decals and accessorized with blue and gold bracelets, a chunky link necklace and a mod statement ring.
The BK Flea was a great spot for fashion spotting, fashion inspiration and great accessory finds. And the Intel Ultrabook, the ‘Ultimate Accessory for every Fashionista‘, embodies some of the trends I saw there. The long battery life is like those vintage pieces; it’s timeless & durable. It’s ultra stylish and sleek – at less than an inch thick, the lightweight and highly portable Ultrabook™ is easy to grab and go anywhere, just like some of the ‘grab and go’ looks in Brooklyn. And it’s got portability and style.
