I'm not usually one to do a haul style post, but as I love reading them I thought today I'd make a little exception. I didn't pick up much on my California trip as I had a hotel room and Disneyland to pay for, but I did find a cute pair of 50's bombshell style mules in turquoise at my grandma's favorite bargain shoe place in San Diego. My grandma also had a huge bag of vintage hankies (with a few scarves thrown in too) for me to go through and choose which ever ones I'd like! Thanks grandma <3
I did pick up two items at Disneyland too, a black pullover with a fun neon design (I'd show you but i'ts already in the washer!) that I bought to combat the chill once the sun went down at the park and a fun Tiki Room themed cloth napkin which I plan to frame rather than use to set the table! I thought the design was fun and would go great in my soon to be redecorated sewing room.
Then of course there was my big purchase, my first pair of Remix Vintage shoes! The style is called Garnet and I bought the black suede and brown croc version. What a shoe store! One small white room lined in the most gorgeous retro shoes a girl could ever dream of! I wanted a pair of each! Though that wasn't in the budget on this trip, I still made a point to try on a few other styles so that I can know my size for future online orders ;) The sales girl was super friendly and neither pushy nor annoyed I wanted to try on extra styles. I totally recommend visiting if you are in the Southern California area, but save your pennies and prepare to be indecisive!

Now I have exhausted my shopping budget for a while, it's time to go back to work! I do have an Ikea trip planned for this weekend to get started on my sewing room revamp though ;)
