Shopping avec ma Mère…

This past Friday, my mom and I took a little shopping trip to Dallas.

I’ve been feeling a little overwhelmed lately with work, new business ventures and more work so I thought a little shopping excursion would be the perfect creativity pick-me-up.

Oh, and cocktails.


We went in shop after adorable shop in the Bishop Art’s District.  They have so many amazing home decor stores, not to mention giftie boutiques, vintage shops and a couple galleries.

It’s hard not to find something I need every time I go.  To which The Boyfriend reminded me of the last time I said I “needed” something I found there, that we didn’t, in fact, ‘need’ a zebra hide throw rug.  Differing opinions to say the least.

We dropped in Oddfellow’s for lunch and decided on a cocktail (or two).  I had the Bee’s Knees and my mom had her first ever Moscow Mule.  I forgot how much I like gin, so perfect for summer.

After lunch we dropped in a couple of my favorite antique stores on Knox Henderson.  Also peeked in one of my favorite eclectic boutiques in Dallas, Gypsy Wagon.  An array of home, bohemian clothing, jewels and accessories, I always find something (or several things) I need.

Well, ‘need’ in my opinion.  Who doesn’t need a rose gold silk and silver beaded boho hair crown?
