The Melrose Trading Post is one of L.A.'s best vintage and collectibles flea markets. It takes place every Sunday at Fairfax High School and is the perfect place to spend an afternoon.

It's also an ongoing fundraising event for student clubs and organizations at Fairfax High, so you can feel good about blowing your paycheck. You'll find everything here, like vintage clothing and handmade jewelry, as well as every kind of tchotchke and knick-knack imaginable.

This week for street wear, it was all about the details that made these treasure hunters' outfits unique. From accessories to DIY embellishments, this flea market's shoppers had it all.

Kristalyn's outfit is effortless. Her top is actually a tucked-in dress from the shop LF, where she works. I love the way she styled that dress as a top; it's a really smart way to wear the high-low skirt trend, which I've been seeing everywhere lately. The really cool part about her outfit is the shoulder details on her flannel. Check out the rad leather & studding:
