Leather and Lace


I love this outfit for several reasons, but mostly because 2 of my favorite vintage/consignment shops are represented here.  If you are a Twin Citian and haven't experienced Mighty Swell yet, what the heck are you waiting for?  The next sale is the weekend of July 23 & 24.  Best put that on your calendar now. 

My Sister's Closet is another treasure boutique that I adore.  Situated in a darling little house off of Grand Ave. in St. Paul, I walk in and it feels like home.  I spend most of my time upstairs amongst the vintage, clearance, and shoes.  They have a newer location in Uptown, Mpls. too, but I haven't shopped there yet.

For anyone who isn't familiar with the Twin Cities and is planning a visit, let me know.  I'll gladly be your shopping guide.  All I ask is that you buy me lunch.  Shopping makes me hungry.

I've never been to Mighty Swell... I'm so ashamed... but I might try to remedy that this weekend!

The lace vest is pretty. I've never actually been to My Sister's Closet, even though it is close to my house.
