Bizarre Bazaar

This past weekend Lola and myself had a great time in the "bizarrely" cold, summer weather visiting the hippest neighborhood in Grand Rapids; that is Eastown of course! We started our day at Leigh's, I just had to see the new Tory Burch and Lilly Pulitzer merchandise that just arrived at the store! This early agenda required me purchasing Starbucks for Lola to get her up and out of bed. Apparently, for Miss Socialite old habits die hard. Then we made our way over to Bizarre Bazaar. It was a great day for walking around the eclectic mix of hand-made works of art, while listening to live local music.

We started at the Eastown Information booth to devise our plan of attack, where to go and what to see? Destination number one; Reb Robert's booth. He had a great mix of pieces! Lola was so captured by his use of color and entertaining folk art style. All the work within his booth was represented by either him or his wife, Carmella Loftis. I ended up purchasing a piece entitled "Fish Boy" for my little tyke back home.

Next up, right across the street was Feathers by Carisa. She had a bunch of unique hairpieces made up of bright feathers, we continued leisurely walking along Wealthy Street bopping around booths.

I wore my favorite new RED Valentino dress, with a bright green Love Quotes scarf, and beautiful Stuart Weitzman wedges. Lola claims I wear them better than Jennifer Aniston, she's sweet but clearly has a biased opinion. Lola also representing RED Valentino with her ribbon detailed top; worn with J Brand skinny jeans, 3.1 Phillip Lim wristlet, and Cole Haan black slide heels.

Not only were we fashionable, but we had fun and met some new friends as well! A special thanks to the Eastown Community Association and Pam for such a warm welcome.
