There’s this shop I love, Spell and the Gypsy Collective based out of Australia, and as a newsletter subscriber I get all the updated info. Usually their clothes are way out of reach for this artist Mama, but I marked my calendar when news came out of their big huge warehouse sale.
The thing was I was booked for a big photography gig out of town that same day. The gig finished a half hour into the sale. On the day, I drove to my gig and had a blast doing it. The event started winding down early and after a discussion with my lovely client, we agreed that I should leave a touch early as things were clearly over *I had arrived early and started early so I felt that was fine to leave – normally I would’ve insisted on staying*
So I got in my car and started the long drive back home. Soon though I remembered the sale and noticed that it had just started. So what did I do? I pulled over.
There I was: on the side of the highway, in an empty parking lot of a model home development/sales centre, in the middle of nowhere Ontario, on my phone shopping the warehouse sale. If the police had been there and taken interest it would’ve been one heck of an explanation. But I grabbed some amazing pieces at incredibly low prices, so in my book it’s a win!
*this post will also answer the question that a lot of people have about me, both online and in real life: how do I have so much variety and great quality in my wardrobe? Side of the highway, empty parking lot, in the middle of nowhere on a phone people, that’s how*

But did you get that… duster? from them? This is perhaps one of my most favoritest posts from you lately. Picture #2 – you look…. well, super gorgeous. This should be framed and on your mantle – or – somewhere. Guest bathroom? 🙂

Yes I did. Hence, Spell Designs. Thanks. I had a great time in the hot wind with these. I just wish the warm weather would come back.
