Hello and happy Tuesday, everybody!

I know I gushed about it in yesterday’s post … but I had SUCH a good time being that crazy-hyper vintage girl at the Blogger’s Closet Raid as sponsored by Lyst [check them out — seriously awesome site to curate your favorite fashion!] this past weekend, that when event organizer The Coveted emailed me pictures from the event, I couldn’t NOT share them with you all here today!

I felt so honored to be rubbing elbows with iconic style bloggers selling their “closets” at the Saturday event, like Keiko Lynn, Lovely Wanderlust, Tineey, Holier Than NowGrease & Glamour, Nitrolicious, The Coveted and the designers behind Edun!

The Tribeca Grand Hotel was the perfect setting for a sale like this … the prices were flea market friendly, but there was actually a NICE bathroom to try on your potential purchases! Oh, the luxuries of NYC …. ;-)

So anyway, vintage lovers, I wanted to share these pictures with you thank to photographer extraordinaire Nando Alvarez and the Independent Fashion Bloggers so that you could re-live the day and also, to digitally meet & greet other Big Apple-based fashion bloggers who share their personal style to inspire!

Keep reading after the jump for the complete recap!
