These actually aren't the two dresses that I bought, but they are two of the dresses that I tried on. I actually loved both of these (hello, ORANGE!), but the striped one, though gorgeous, had skinny straps and no back, and let's be honest here, I don't think I can pull off backless and skinny straps.
The other dress, with the cute print, had a really sweet Peter Pan collar, but it was waaaaaay too short for work. I don't want to give the kids that kind of an education!
The weather was so nice; it actually reached 80 degrees! It made me really long for warmer days here, too, and now I can't stop looking at dresses and clothes for spring. That didn't stop me from picking up a great sweater and an equally great cardigan, though. (I'd say the trip was a success!) The cardigan is reminiscent of the one Anne Hathaway wears here...
Mine isn't nearly as long (and it is hooded), but hey, I take what I can get!
We also went to a neat little shop called Copperfield's Gifts and Rarities- super fun, and recommended!
They sell a mix of new and vintage/antique items, with prints all around the exposed brick walls. They also have a pretty good selection of used books, including one in the nonfiction section titled Unicorns.
I also stopped in a book store called Calico Cat Books; I am still on the lookout for Hemingway's A Moveable Feast.
The (cute!) book store worker directed me to the sections of the store where I could search, but to no avail. As I was leaving, he stopped to let me know that he had found a first edition up at the front. What service! Sadly, I had to step away from the bookstore, as I don't really have the money to buy a first edition Hemingway. Maybe next time!
