Style Tour, Day One!

I've been running around like a crazy(er) person visiting shops for the Style Tour and getting in touch with boutique owners to plan visits. Yesterday, I met with the lovely ladies of the Dress for Success 4th Street Boutique (they are such a fun and dedicated bunch) to chat about ways to bring more people in to shop.

I was daunted by the fact that I had no clue how to get professional results using an amateur video editing program. Really, how ridiculous is that? But because I was...

The heat is on

On Saturday, I hit u.swap, a clothing swap put on by U-Turn Art Space and vintage shop Chicken Lays an Egg (check out co-owner Jessy's blog, Mascara or Motoroil). Surprisingly (to me), I found ten items I was ready to part with--I have a hard time letting go of clothes--and managed to bring home a few new things in support of what I've decided to deem "sustainable shopping." What? It's a real movement. Clothes...
