Yes, that’s right. It was 100 in Phoenix today. A bit too warm for me! I don’t know how folks live here in July/Aug/Sept…and don’t even say ‘but it’s a dry heat’. Anything over 100 is hot! Despite the heat, I have had a great trip to the Valley of the Sun. I’ve gotten a little sun. Maybe a shade darker….or maybe I’m the only one that will notice that! I did read 3 books this week while soaking up the rays, which was super nice and relaxing.
I also had the chance to visit a great little vintage store yesterday (which I’ve added details to in the Shops tab). It’s located in a fabulous high-end vintage shop in Central Phoenix. The kind of shop that says ‘do not touch’ on everything. The pieces are even worth going into the store to look at – very nice mid-century pieces. But, back to the little vintage shop, it’s called Mint and has a nice little selection of well-preserved clothing, hats, and jewelry. After trying on a few hats, I’ve decided that I want to treat my sister’s upcoming wedding as a ‘royal wedding’ and wear a vintage hat. Though, I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t go for that! After putting back the five, or ten, hats I tried on, I ended up with a beautiful vintage scarf from the 1940’s.
I’ve really been into 40’s pieces lately, especially peplums (that cute little ruffle that is attached to the waistline of a dress). Plus the prints of clothing from this era are so great. Though I don’t usually purchase vintage outside of the 50’s era, I think I might have to start expanding into the 40’s now!
In the morning I’m looking forward to journeying back to Fayetteville, but will miss the family in Phoenix. It’s such a great place to come visit and relax in!
