vintage love with vintage gals

Hannah, Ryann and I planned a day of vintage shopping and inspiration while Hannah was on Spring Break. It was an absolutely fabulous day!

I fell madly and deeply in love with Donna’s Dress Shop. Great display work and quality merchandise. If you’re not friends with them on Facebook you really should be right now. They update often and have super pictures.

Remember these bracelets?! ‘Going together’ bracelets that turned your arm all sorts of shades of green! I had one, did you?

I’m so in love with this purse. I DISTINCTLY remember a girl with long blonde hair that worked afternoons at my daycare that carried a similar purse. Her other one was suede with fringe. I can still smell the leather as I lay on my mat during quiet time. Purse love began early for me…

My favorite is strawberry, but tried the chocolate this time. Delicious, but strawberry is still my favorite…

Urban Arts and Crafts makes me über happy. Urban, modern knitting and sewing. With some paper crafting and jewelry making on the side. So inspiring…

Lastly, to a vintage/retro place I’ve adored for years. But, I was thoroughly unimpressed. Sad.
