fly boutique

.
I should probably post photos of the beach and lovely sunsets - but you guys basically get the drift on that kind of thing. It can wait, right? Because here is the thing I'm still obsessing over from South Beach (besides missing my chicas) - Fly Boutique. There we are, innocently roaming down the street after dinner on our way to a club when it appeared. Fly Boutique. (and by 'appeared' I mean it was just there on the street between two other stores. but yea drama!) Cue angels singing and streams of glorious light.
.
After a quick glance around we decided we'd need to come back the next day for some quality shopping time. I could have spent hours in that store! It was a great mix of thrift/vintage - everything from a random Express bag to vintage Prada shoes and Chanel sunglasses. Huge range of clothing and accessories (and prices).
.
I had to talk myself out of a hot-pink tutu. A tutu is, for the record, on my fall shopping list -but I want black....although now I'm kind of regretting leaving the pink behind. Also had to rip myself away from an awesome (faux) fur cape. Fortunately, both my shopping buddy and I left happy with vintage purses - hers gray w/colored snakeskin accents and mine a black military-esque number.
.
If you happen to live in Florida (lucky dog) or get a chance to visit South Beach, Fly Boutique is definitely worth checking out.
ps- thanks to the friendly staff for letting me take pictures!

Tutus! Squeeee!!! I love them so much! I love the pink number you have on in the photo. I actually made a tutu today! I'll post pics sometime soon :) Oooh yes, a black tutu is on my wanty list right now too.
It's a little time consuming,but there are loads of tutorials about the interwebs on how to make a tutu. It's really easy! Methinks you'd enjoy the process. I was actually thinking of posting a li'l tutorial of my own...
Or, there are quite a few pretty ones on Etsy. It's what inspired me to make my own ;)
