Rainy Day on South Congress
I had a great time in Austin with my aunt and my mom these past two days..we stayed at the San Jose Hotel.
Maybe all of these plants liked the rain we experienced on Monday, but not me. We didn't let the crappy weather ruin our short trip though.
A slice of apple pie at the Woodland Cafe, my favorite food on South Congress. It reminds me of Twin Peaks. As Agent Cooper would say, "This must be where pies go when they die".
Right down the street was Uncommon Objects at 1512 South Congress Ave. You can spend hours in this store..and I think we did.
A trip to Austin isn't complete without a trip to Feathers-I love this store. The owners Emily and Masha are so sweet. It is extremely well edited and they're always getting new stuff! Mom and I came home with some things we love.
Eventually the sun came out, and I was able to debut one of my purchases-a little 70's navajo-style vest I picked up at New Bohemia.
These pants are 'new' too. I got them a week or two ago in New York at What Goes Around Comes Around. I am obsessed with vintage Yves Saint Laurent bloomers and I finally found myself a good pair! I was totally stressed out when I got to New York, but then I found these and the trip was all worth it. I love them.
These Pradas were the only shoes I brought on the trip-they are from fall 2006. These are some great shoes. Prada Fall 06 was one of my favorite seasons for Prada ever!
Coming up next...my favorite store in Austin! Expect a post soon.
