Houston Vintage Market is the best vintage purveyors in Houston gathering for one megamart of vintage amazingness, plus (!) burlesque, "lipstick girls" (instead of cigarette girls), ballroom dancers, pin-up makeup artists and hair stylists. It's almost too much awesome for one historic firehouse to hold, especially when friends and acquaintances you haven't seen in forever are there to shop and chat with.

a beautiful "lipstick girl" that wandered the market with
her tray of lipstick retouching necessities.
|The milliners of Violet Peacock were there with a |
collection of fascinators called "Velocity", inspired by
1930's car car hood ornaments. Every item was chic,
playful and handmade. My absolute favorite was the
top hat on the pink wigged mannequin found
in the first picture.

|I always imagine stories of the|
people who once wore the vintage that comes
into my life. While shopping, Judy Masliyah,
of My Flaming Heart stopped in shock that
I was wearing a vintage dress
she once owned, it was fun to have one
of those imaginary puzzle pieces become reality.

|As a contrast to the sweet jewelry, pink chucks and a|
turquoise patent studded belt complete the look
with a touch of edge.
Well, I've blabbered enough about how spectacularly fun it all was. Next post will have two of the 5 sweet vintage finds I nabbed at the market. Again, I need to improve upon the quantity of street style pics I get, but I was just so distracted by all the fun, friends and shopping.
