In the words of Ricky Bobby – if you’re not first, you’re last!
I FINALLY ventured to the Rose Bowl Flea Market and it did not disappoint. I have been wanting to go to this since I moved to LA so it has been on my list for about 3 years now ~wow how have I lived in Los Angeles for three years already!?~ I went with my sisters and best friend and we left Santa Monica at around 8ish and got to the flea at around 9am. It is in Pasadena so it is a little bit of a drive.
Refinery 29 recently opened a museum in NYC and then they brought it to LA since it was so popular. This museum was called 29Rooms and it was a complete funhouse full of style, culture and technology. You got to go into special rooms that were all decorated different inside and had different meanings to them. It was so cool that a bunch of artists put together such a cool place for people to gather and check out. Keep scrolling to see some of the rooms and what I wore to the museum.
This orange plaid dress called my name as soon as I saw it! It has major Rachel Comey/Tibi vibes so obviously I LOVE it. Keep reading below to see how I styled it and some ideas of other ways it can be styled.
Disney aka where I plan what I want to eat weeeeeks in advance!! There are so many amazing food options at Disney – some better than others. I think in general I’ve decided that the food over at California Adventure is better than at Disneyland however, Disneyland definitely does have some yummy gems. Keep reading to see all of my favorite foods to snag while at the magical world that is Disneyland!

Unfortunately, it is rare when I am off on Sunday. However, when I am off on a Sunday I love to go to the farmer’s market! This Sunday I went to the Melrose Place Farmers Market and it was really nice! There were lots of fresh fruit and vegetable stands to explore, flower stands and cute little shops that had clothes! Keep reading below to see what I wore!
Lately I have been thinking a lot about things I want to do in my life. Some ridiculous and some that are hopefully reachable. I thought I would start this bucket list post so that once I do the items on it I can put a picture next to it and talk about my experiences! Alright… here we go!

Ahhh October…the month of flannels, fall leaves, and of course, pumpkin E V E R Y T H I N G!! I have done a few fun activities to celebrate this fun and I just thought I’d share them here. Although it is currently one hundred and two degrees in Los Angeles – yes, you read that right – I am still trying to get in the spirit!
So it’s been about a month in my new role as Assistant Manager and it’s going so well! The weirdest part about it however is that now I dress up a bit more and it has totallyyyyy changed people’s perspective of me. While it’s still me – the same old Haley – I keep getting comments like ‘wow! You’re so grown up now’ these comments don’t bother me too much but I’ve realized they are being said due to how I’m dressing.
It’s interesting the perception of clothes has on people. I’m always told don’t judge a book by its cover. That goes for actual books as well as people. A customer could come in looking beyond deshevled but spend thousands of dollars! I think this same concept applies for me.
In my old role I worked in men’s so I was allowed to dress more like a tomboy, if you will. I loved it. I love wearing denim and sneakers and graphic tees everyday to work. But in my new elevated role in the women’s designer section dressing up is a must!
These comments just remind me how versatile I am when it comes to my fashion 😉 Remember not to judge someone off of appearance and to always & forever stay Vest Dressed!
