One of my darling friends Featherheart got married on the fourth up on Lake Michigan. I decided to go out early and hang with her in Detroit do some shopping for the shop and a little for myself too. I personally got like 30 new vintage dresses and then tons of other goodies for the shop. Stop in and check it out next week. Also check out Featherhearts Etsy. She makes organic face and body creams, salves and other amazing goodies. I restocked and I swear my skin already looks smoother and clearer. I particularly love the lavender oil and all the Salves.
Detroit was so crazy. I wish I had taken pictures, but I was just so distracted!!! It was completely abandoned and blown out downtown and all the surrounding neighborhoods. There were beautiful amazing 2 story brick and Victorian style houses just burnt out and boarded up. Even downtown had mini skyscrapers that were completely abandoned and empty with broken windows. Within this chaos is a college and all these amazing young artist and musicians struggling to keep their city alive. The amount of pride amongst all the amazing people I met, just totally blew me away and made Detroit on of my favorite cities I have ever been too. It's a cold reminder of urban flight and the country's ability to just turn it's back on a community. But on the flip-side it's also so inspirational to see the creativity and hope that can grow out such a situation. And for those that have not been there, it is a situation.
I stayed in a little area outside of downtown, Ferndale that was really cute. It had an artsy cool vibe and the most amazing vintage store Lost and Found. I went crazy there. I was seriously having a heart attack at all the perfect vintage dresses. It was like SF in the early 90's when Wasteland actually sold amazing vintage and everything was like under 50. I DIE!!!
Then we headed to the lake. The adorable sales girls at Lost and Found also came to the wedding. Loads of food, lake time, cool old restaurants, a Parade in the downtown of this cute little all American town called Harbor Springs, not to mention a lot of drinking, fire building and all around country goodness. Also got to hang with my best friend Christel, who although lives in the same city as me, we never get to hang out. Such is the life of busy glamour girls.
The bride looked so amazing I just could not get enough of her. Her dress was Vintage and cost 8 dollars. Love it. Her flowers were daisy's and I'm loving her head wreath. I caught the Bouquet after drinking like 6 lynch-berg lemon-aides. Last time I did that I was married within the year. I'm just saying.
