This past weekend I had the opportunity to go down and hit some vintage stores in LA with friends. It's amazing really because as long as I have lived in California, I rarely have made trips down there. The atmosphere really changes so much- and the driving...intense stuff- haha. The stores were great though. I've never really been to any real vintage places, unless I am shopping online. There are just countless racks of clothing- all in different colors and eras. And I was happy to finally have made it into an Anthropologie. I'm familiar with them online, but had never been in a store up until a few days ago. It is so inspiring in there- it makes me want to decorate. If only I had the budget to go along with it all- haha.
On a different note, can you believe how fast September flew by? I can hardly fathom that we are already embarking into October. I's crazy how some times of the year just slip through your fingertips.
The blouse I am wearing is from Adie Holly. There's over 240 items in this shop, so there's hard not to fall in love with something- ha! I love what Adrianne, the shop owner, says about supporting vintage businesses, " We the consumers can support one another while keeping alive the art of craft and re-loving of the past's items of plenty." I've always loved it when I can buy something from a small business, or something local/US made, because I feel like I am supporting my community.
This cute little floral skirt, from Fawna Vintage, is actually a dress, however, as I often do, I styled it as a skirt. It really is such a cute little piece- I love the colors in the print because they can go Autumn or Spring really easily. And the fabric is so soft and flowing. Fawna Vintage is great because there are so many insanely adorable little dresses for a great price. And the packaging it came in was too adorable- little pastel candies and a card with the beautiful shop logo. Any of the dresses would make for great gifts as well!
