Gypsy Night Market Vintage Sale

Last night Michael just got back from Tough Mudder, some crazy race for crazy people.

We decided to go for a stroll and check out the Chinatown Night Market, since it was only a couple of blocks away.

As expected, it was kind of sad. Next time I am just going to head straight to the Richmond ones.

However, the night was not a total bust. On the way home, we walked past The Fortune Sound Club. Usually filled with your dancing drinking variety of events. However, last night they had a special fashion and shopping guest, Gypsy Market Vintage. To match the neighbourhood happenings, it's a special Night Market Vintage Sale. Well, of course I had to go in!

It was well worth it.

The Night, Concrete and Feathers

Sometimes, inspiration comes when you are rummaging through your accessory drawer. These are some old favourites and new additions. I think they went together beautifully.

Feather hair comb, dropping form design, Chanel inspired gold chain quilted cross body, hot topic tights, banana republic embroidered floral jacket, Street Style

Necklace, second hand from The Spree

Tights from Hot Topic in Bellis Fair Mall

Embroidered floral jacket from Banana Republic purchased from Talize

The artist's attention to detail is amazing. Each element is expertly combined. This particular comb blends in well with my hair. Though I also want some with different colours that would stand out. It is a super fun piece that adds a touch of whimsical to any outfit. It can also be a great steam punk accessory.


The combination of woods, plastic and metal on the chunky necklace is amazing. The colour combination makes me feel like fall. But the gold flecks resonates with a clear fall day. I love clear sunny fall days.

It is not something to be worn out without solid bottoms. But I did not want to replace those tights with solid leggings. Instead, I decided to layer the look with a black velvet tube top that I worn as a skirt. It adds more texture to the outfit as well.


These tights are super fun. I saw them at Hot Topic during a recent Seattle trip. The store was littered with Twilight posters and reminded me ever so of that South Park episode.


Talize rarely does me wrong. Every trip brings delightful finds. These boots are no different. I really like the suede and the wedge heel. Adding height and preserving comfort.

I had no idea Banana Republic made such a colourful line. The three quarter sleeves makes it a good spring and fall transition jacket. The golden thread used to embroider the flowers is the cherry on top of this fun outfit finisher.

The concrete juxtaposes this whole outfit. The soft and feminine shape and texture of the top contrasts nicely to the texture of the concrete wall. This shoot was all about contrasts.

The night engulfs the light of day.

When the party has faded away.

In the jungle of concretes, all I have are my feathers.

The gold flecks clings to life.

Hoping for the sun to shine.
