On Saturday, I had the pleasure of going to Happy Hair Boutique for a Pop Up Shop Hosted by Shop The CC. Lavonne Alexis is the proprietor of Shop The CC and I absolutely love her stuff. She has the most unique pieces that I can’t resist! I love standing out and her accessory game is on point! Going in, I knew that I wanted to buy the aviator style sunglasses I referenced in last week’s post. I went in with a $50 budget and easily (more like shamelessly) surpassed it.
Her layout was gorgeous and enticing! There was a rack of vintage clothes where I immediately picked up a black fringe skirt (with mess detailing on the bottom) for $28. (Photo not available). Then I found the sunglasses! There were only two pairs on display so I grabbed mine before anyone else could! And when she told me the sunglasses were only $10 each, I grabbed another pair just because! At this point I should have stopped. I was already at my limit. But then…
I saw the cupcakes. Now you know my inner fat kid can’t resist a bougie cupcake! These weren’t just any cupcakes. They were Red Velvet Cheesecake Cupcakes! Let that just sit on your tongue for a bit. When you bite in, the top layer (a swirl of red velvet and pound cake) is complimented with a relatively thick layer of cream cheese! THEN there’s a layer of pound cake, followed by the red velvet! It was heaven! One of the girls ended up looking at me strange because I was in my own world after eating that. Smart move Lavonne, having cupcakes with clothes. I see you.
It encouraged me to stay longer and browse more. That’s when I saw the fifteen cent earrings I’ve wanted for two years! I saw them at an old pop up shop of hers, and recently at a local shop while I was looking for a Mother’s Day present. But this time, I finally had enough to get them! (Just because I had a $50 limit doesn’t mean I only brought $50. Come on, I’m not an amateur). I was so in love with my earrings, I wore them to church on Sunday (again photo not available). I promise to show them off with an outfit soon enough!
I loved everything about the pop up shop. The atmosphere and decorations were gorgeous, the staff was friendly and helpful and the pieces were to die for! I was a little upset that one of the shoes I liked didn’t come in my size, and I didn't have enough for the Sade t-shirt, but I definitely left there inspired to change up my look a little! I can’t wait to show off my new style to you guys so stay tuned!
