‘Mixed Media’ featuring Carlo’s One Night Stand in Missoula, MT

virginiafrancesComment

I’m all about mixing different types of patterns, prints, eras, you name it. This is one of the more conservative of my mixed configurations; a co-worker of mine once told me that I dress like her 5 year old. I took it as a compliment, really.

Featured Thrift Shop

In just a few weeks me, my man, and our dog will be heading east for our 4th annual ‘Great American Road Trip to Montana’. Oh how I love the open road and the ever changing landscape. Our final destination is Red Lodge, a cute little resort town along the highway to Yellowstone National Park. On the way there, we stop in Missoula for a night or two to visit friends and family. I’ve grown to love Missoula. Every year we visit I discover more reasons to consider settling down there some day. Reason #17: Missoula has great thrift stores! One of my favorites is Carlo’s One Night Stand. Besides having a great name, Carlo’s is jam packed with a wide variety of fun vintage fashions for ladies and dudes alike. For a vintage store their prices are totally reasonable. Every time I stop in I leave with at least an item or two, along with deep regret for not having bought that rad 60’s dress I reluctantly put back on the rack.  So, go check it out. And fall in love with Missoula while you’re at it.
