Yesterday I had the extreme pleasure of spending a day out shopping with the lovely Hannah, who I met at the Fur and Feathers Luncheon back in January.
Our first visit was a little shop that hasn’t been on my radar for too long, but will now become a staple of my downtown visits, Living Threads Vintage.
While I didn’t buy anything at the shop (although there is a hat calling my name that I may have to go back for) Hannah purchased three very basic and wonderful items (items this girl needed! She has expressed that nearly all of her wardrobe is comprised of novelty prints!), including the pair of darling, and very sensible, 40s shoes, picture above, a classic black pencil skirt, and a hat.
We also stopped in at Ray’s Ragtime, Buffalo Exchange, and Avalon (where I drooled over a stellar linen suit that may have to come home with me in the near future). We tried to visit Lulu’s, however, she is closed on Tuesdays. After our arms were full of delightful purchases, we stopped in at Mother’s for a bite to eat where we enjoyed fried ravioli. Seriously, one of the best things I have ever ate! Then, it was time to say goodbye…but just look at this girls loot! And her incredible style! Her jacket was too cute for words.
Pictures of a few of my purchases tomorrow! Stay tuned!
