One thing I didn’t really talk about when I shared our travels to California was our visit to Orange for shopping and lunch with Patrick’s sister. I didn’t really discuss it because I didn’t have any pictures! Because, well, someone (ahem, not me!) had a little accident with their camera, which resulted in us having to stop by a camera store in LA (which we were doing the day after our visit to Orange) to buy a new lens. So, alas, no pictures of shopping in Orange happened. But moving along… The old town part of Orange is as charming as can be. There are lovely old buildings, most of which are filled with antique shops and vintage clothing stores.
I didn’t buy too much, in fact, all I bought in included in this perfectly fall outfit I put together yesterday for errand running…
I bought the skirt at Elsewhere Vintage, which I’m not sure I can rave about enough. It’s a wonderland for any vintage gal, with pristine, drop-dead gorgeous and unique items. Every time I step in my mouth drops to the floor. After Elsewhere, we popped over to their “brother” shop, Joyride, which is an all menswear vintage shop (with top of the line inventory), where Patrick proceeded to buy five shirts and a jacket. Yeah. Then after that we went over to Villains Vintage, where I scored the tremendous hat here. And Patrick bought another jacket. So, basically he came away with way more than me, and It’s a good thing I didn’t buy more, or else we would have needed to check another bag! Be sure to keep shopping in mind if you ever plan a trip down to the area, especially if you’re flying! I gave serious contemplation to packing hardly any clothes and just buying some! May force Patrick to do that next time!
