It’s the first weekend of December. Virginia sure stays warmer than what I’m used to. I’ve only lived in cities farther north, all the way into the snow belt. The fall/winter season is probably my favorite time of year, now, though I can’t say it always was. It’s the best season for fashion: coats, boots, wools, fur hats. There will not be many very chilly days in Richmond, as there never is, but I look forward to the inevitable snow and a big, heavy coat.
The season changes keep me moving, keep me creative, keep me looking at things differently. I change with the seasons.
I am also adding new winter and formal items to the Heirloomen shop, daily. Be sure to keep checking, as some items go quickly with people on the hunt for the perfect gift for loved ones or themselves.
I took this photos in early November on a walk through Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, VA. This gorgeous cemetery is the resting place to many historical figures — worth checking out if you are ever in the area.
Autumn 2017 collection (just a preview!) – all of these beautiful vintage pieces will be making their way into the Heirloomen shop over the next few weeks, so keep checking. There are plenty of coats, wools, and velvets coming, too.
These 1970’s red pants belonged to my mom. I am lucky she and my grandmother both saved plenty of clothing, hats, and photos. I am also lucky they fit me! Good vintage clothes are becoming harder and harder to source – we must hold on and take care of the pieces we have!
It’s hot in Virginia – the heat index has us well over 100 degrees. This white and pink cotton sundress is a little big on me, so it may end up for sale in the shop. It goes great with cutesy summer pastels and its perfectly cool.
While the summer weekends in Richmond are quiet, those of us that doesn’t have a lake, river, or beach house, still need things to do. Quirk Hotel’s rooftop bar is the perfect place to watch the sun set with a craft cocktail or something from their small plates menu. The crowd is pleasant, and the atmosphere is serine thanks to the sleekly designed layout and ambiance. For another design and gastro-forward activity, Maple and Pine, downstairs, is a great dinner spot to pair with a rooftop night.
