Unique L.A. + OOTD

I went to "Unique LA" this weekend.

Unique LA
The largest independent design show in the country, attendees get the rare chance to meet and shop directly from over 300 hand-selected designers and artists. The exciting two-day shopping event makes it easy for you to buy local and support LA’s economy, discover great design and deals, join in community, and have a blast! Over 95% of the products at the show are proudly made right here in the USA!

I found out about the event because Eva Franco sent a newsletter stating she was attending the show.

Eva Franco is a designer who has her items at Anthropologie.
I fell in love with her "Cafe Creme Skirt" at Anthropologie back in Jan 2010 and made me want to start this blog.

I, of course, wore my Eva Franco Skirt hoping to meet the designer but the staff told me I just missed her   :(
Her booth was great with all her pretty desses/skirts for about 1/3 of the original prices.

Shoes: mercibeaucoup

The event was filled with amazing crafts and arts.
Nice to see all the local artists and designers.
I found a booth which I noticed that many of the items looked very familier.
That is when I noticed that was a booth for an etsy artist that I liked and bookmarked.
The store is called "Hello,friend"
Her booth was so cute and I wanted to buy everything there.
I bought two packs of parts instead so I can figure out if I can make my own hair accessaries and necklaces.

I especially love these ones!
