Sharpen Your Rag Picking Prowess with Tips to Shop the Pasedena Flea Market, Cruze-arati Style
Repurpose some Fashion Unexpected at the Pasadena Rose Bowl with Strim Vintage Designer, Wendy Mirts!
I love a good flea market for its unexpectedness and odd one-of-a-kind items.
I’ve picked up some incredible vintage finds from Paris to New York, and many dusty points in between. So when I heard that The Curvy Fashionista Marie Denee had some super tips by way of Strim Vintage Designer, Wendy Mirts on how to shop a huge flea market, like the one in Pasedena, I had to have her share her tips with you!
Marie Denee one of the bloggers scouting out finds across the country on behalf of the Chevy Cruze-arati team, so who knows where she’ll turn up next. Watch how to repurpose vintage finds into something new and more fabulous… and on the hood of a car to boot! –S.H.
What happens when you drop a vintage fashion designer and reseller with a Curvy Fashionista like myself- all while playing in my all new Chevy Cruze?
