Last Weekend's Amazing A Current Affair Show

This past weekend, I brought the West Coast Prep of GlamAmor downtown to the Cooper Building for the prestigious A Current Affair vintage show.  Over 25 of the finest vintage dealers from Los Angeles and beyond gathered to present their carefully curated collections to an adoring audience that included Kristen Stewart and Marisa Tomei.  It was fascinating to see how each vendor's artistic vision was uniquely expressed through vintage clothing and accessories.  Things kicked off Friday night with a cocktail party and continued through to the beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon.

Friday night was a cocktail party hosted by burlesque dancer Liz Goldwyn, who curated a collection of vintage picks from the Current Affair vendors and signed advance copies of her book Pretty Things.  She was appropriately positioned right in front of GlamAmor!

I loved everyone and can't wait to do it again!
