Accidental Finds–How Travel Can Result in Our Favorite Brands, Shops, etc.

I was on one of Bill’s business trips with him.  We were in Tuscon, AZ (a delightful area), and he had a bunch of meetings.

After one of the meetings, we were going to go out for drinks, so I offered to hang around where his meeting would be instead of making him pick me up from the hotel.

So I wandered around the (very hot) streets of Tuscon while he had his meetings.

I turned a corner and saw racks and racks of cute vintage style dresses.  And I went in the store even though I figured the prices would be ridiculous.

Turns out, the prices of the non-sale dresses (that is, full-priced) ran about $40-$60.

Holy cow!

I grabbed the ones I liked and they all fit really well.

Here’s one that I took home with me:

By the way, this is why you should not get a mirror with beveled edges.

The store had a fantastic selection at decent prices.

I was sad it wasn’t closer.  But I signed up for their mailing list anyway.

To find out they ended up opening an online store, Crown the Shop.  Huzzah!

They also have their own makeup line, but I haven’t tried that myself at all.

But my credit card is going to be busy today….

  1. Tucson… my adopted hometown. I’ve been here for 10 years and I’m starting to appreciate it. It’s not glamorous, but it has enough to keep me entertained.
