PHOTOGRAPHY: me! (

During my most recent trip to Asheville, NC, I discovered that my favorite vintage shop in town,

Vintage Moon

, had a new, bigger location; Needless to say, I was elated at the discovery! After drooling at the endless supply of owner Gigi Rene's phenomenal handpicked and reconstructed vintage and new handmade goodies, I tried on a couple lovely rompers- one being a recommendation by Bonnie, one of Vintage Moon's gals, and the other a Hawaiian-made bathing romper from the 50's/60's. I fell in love with both as soon as I saw them, but alas my goal was to leave with just one special piece for myself. The choice was easy: the chocolate lace romper from the 1960's fit me like a glove, and for a petite, curvy girl like myself, that's rare. So thank you Bonnie! It's now the most prized item in my personal vintage collection! I later returned to photograph Vintage Moon for this feature and, through my lens, my appreciation for Gigi's keen eye for prints and high quality vintage and gypsy-inspired decorating skills grew tenfold. My version of heaven! After leaving, I promptly changed into my freshly-picked dark chocolate lace romper, and had my partner Gabe snap some photos (check out my next post for those photos).

Vintage Moon is located at 82B N. Lexington Ave. Asheville, NC 28801
