Spring was something that never really hit the high country here in Arizona this year, but Summer is peeking around the corner and the temps are rising. I remember Summer’s growing up in St. Louis and how as the temperatures grew so did the evening adventures into the Central West End; with its sidewalk cafes, retro clothing stores, restaurants and my favorite place, Vintage Vinyl. Though I spent my teens listening to cassette tapes there is something so classic and pure about a record printed on vinyl. I hate that my son and the majority of his friends have no idea what a “record” is, let alone know what to do with it if they ever found one! Vintage Vinyl had cubicles you could play records in and I remember stuffing 4 or 5 teen girls into one to hear the newest release from one of our favorite bands. Needless to say as I was out wandering around looking for a place to inspire me for a picture, I headed by Indie Heights, and to my surprise found Vintage Vinyl. Though a little modern, I was immediately transported back in time and I closed my eyes for a moment and I swear I could smell the fresh pressed vinyl. If you too have a love of records and are looking for a spot to just chill out and think about the times gone by, then head on over to your favorite Thrift Shop and grab an old player with a couple of albums and get nostalgic with me for simpler times.

I absolutely love the retro Boho feel of this fringe top with its tailored shorts. Both are very well made, though I will say you might have some breaking through when wearing a mesh body when twisting and turning. But as you can see here, it is very pose specific and doesn’t interfere with wearing it at all. Do yourself a favor and head on by AnaMarkova Designs and check out all the gorgeous new releases including the one featured here.
Have a wonderfully wicked rest of your day and remember to always stay true to your style and make today’s fashion trends work for you!
