When I first moved to Fayetteville, NC, I thought to myself (and shouted out loud many times), “What is this place?!” I just didn’t get it. The closest H&M, at the time, was more than an hour away, the Macy’s here is so small it should be called a boutique, and all of the Goodwills are loaded with stretched out cotton turtlenecks and tons of nurse’s smocks in different prints! Like, what the heck? I felt lost, hopeless and yearned for just a glimpse of creative fashion and style. However, this reality forced me to shop in a few stores I would never previously have gone into. I must say, what I found surprised me.
This is one of my favorite finds – a $7 jean jackets from a store called Roses! I took my perfectly oversized denim jacket home and basket weaved the back with my handy dandy glue gun. Ain’t life grand 🙂
I can’t wait to see what I’ll find next!
Have you had any great finds like this in your town? I love Fayetteville for challenging me to find new places to shop!
