One of my all-time favorite vintage stores is Second Hand Rose in Petersburg, Virginia. I’ve writtten about this find before. Mom and I stopped in before heading to the cupcake tasting on Saturday. We were delighted by the child model posing in classic wares as a window mannequin. I came there in search of a whimsy (most recently known as a “birdcage” hat) to wear to New York Fashion Week , which starts in a few days. I loved the whimy so much on the girl that I had to buy it right then and there! It was an awesome price, t00! Only $24 for such an historic piece of fashion:) I’m excited about wearing it in the city later this week with my retro dresses (well, if it isn’t freezing) as well as my jeans (for everyday sass:)
I’m a media strategist, fashion fan and whimsical event planner. For years, I’ve been “reporting” from fashion shows and fabulous events to my loved one out of pure joy. Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I’d sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, “I think you need a blog!” LOL! I’ve been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
