Pop Up Market at Union Pool in Williamsburg–TODAY!

It’s incredibly late notice, considering the event starts in 10 minutes. But if you are in or around Williamsburg today, one of your best bets for fun and great shopping would be the Pool Supplies pop-up market at Union Pool!

The event is from 2-7pm, and features goods from some amazing up and coming NYC designers!
I’ll be bouncing between this, and the flea shooting street style all afternoon. If you see me, be sure to say Hi!

See a sneak peek of some of the items featured here.

VERDICT: While most of the collection didn’t synch up with my personal style, I admired the bold use of prints, bright, intense colors, and the way classic pieces like blazers were updated with new nautical inspired twists.
