Over the Thanksgiving weekend my Honey and I were driving back to Aunt Sunday's house in Angleton, TX. I sat in the passenger seat (Instagramming my last visual catch)
Marc suddenly spun the car around to stop at just such a place. "Did you see that? we have to stop!" I looked up from my phone to see a "Tuxedo" sign and a abnormally tall vintage crib setup as an outdoor yard ornament of sorts.
|my future herb garden needs this gem to adorn her|
Upon entering Chic and Shabby Consignment Shoppe we found the most adorable hippy chic boutique clothing, glittery jewelry, random bits n bobs, some vintage flair and a huge wall full of formal and cocktail dresses...if that weren't enough there was also unique art & furniture. It felt like a neat and tidy eye candy shop to be sure.
Why am I telling you all about this as if you're going to drive all the way to small town Angleton? Because everyone, in every part of the world, need to find out about the little town treasures right in their own backyard. Maybe now that Sunday knows this place is more than just a tux supply she'll share the good news with all the sweet folks of Angleton.
|a blurry glimpse at some fun finger bling (they have LOADS!!)|
So here you have it Texas....Angleton secrets revealed. Maybe we'll be coming to your town soon:)
In closing, I must tell you the rest of the story. By the grace of God we found the most stunning gold & silver dress that my sweet Honey bought me for our Christmas Eve special (TBA). We also found a glimmer-y massive ring to match and a black vintage purse, which I'll have to use all the time....oh, yes, a work of art (which I forgot to photograph) AND a perfectly vintage screen in happy yellow
(when Aunt Sunday n Uncle Tom deliver our goodies in a couple weeks we'll share it then)
on with the pictures already......

Daughter has the consignment shoppe and right across the street Mama has The Jade Shoppe, this cutsie shop where they're finishing up the alterations on my gown. I totally want to bless these owners by sending loads of business their way so call and see if they take orders:)

Did I mention after I went home to drop off Marc I collected Aunt Sunday, my Sis and my niece. Here's a bit of that repeat.
|we love to be silly and cause a bit of a scene, don't we?|
|what is that look all about? I'm acting like I'm the fashion boss or something|
Oh, she's just trying dresses over her jeans....I assure you this would not be the finished product!
|I may have found my new style...or at least part of it. I LOVE leggings, boots and a big flouncy shirt! totally ME!|
