STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Peace, Love and Junk

What if I told you that there is a place where people from all over come together for three days in June and October to bring peace, love and junk. Where live local bands come and play music while you search the food vendors for that one special treat you know you can’t find anywhere else but here. Where tents, small barns and small vans are packed with antiques of every shape and size imaginable, from vintage clothing to homemade furniture—it’s all there. What is this place you may be asking yourself? Why, it is the wonderful world of Junkstock.

Junkstock is a flee market that is only open six days out of the entire year and people from all over the Midwest come and basically sell their “junk” that they either have accumulated or created. People who come here are looking for great deals, awesome food and joyful company amongst vendors. The atmosphere here speaks for itself-think flower headbands, long white dresses, tons of rings, large circle sunglasses for attire. This Fashionista took her own inspirations and matched it with Junkstocks laid back and friendly vibes.

I love the overalls; to me it’s a throwback piece that has become a mainstream item again, and the way she adds the retro T-shirt underneath the light-wash of the overalls makes the look even more vintage and fits in perfectly with the peace signs and antique items located at every turn. The rings, sun-hat, sunglasses and fringed bag are the perfect accessories to this Fashionistas ’70s-inspired ensemble.

Booties are also becoming a more popular trend this season with short hemmed dresses and skirts. In this case, this Fashionista paired a pair of light brown booties with her ensemble to bring a little country-chic to her look. Over all her entire outfit fit her surroundings and the atmosphere at Junkstock perfectly this season. Peace, love and happy Junking.
