memories are made for this

some of my best memories are frivelous shopping trips. most of them include my cousin or my mother.

my grandmother, my mom and i {three generations of shopoholics} used to take trips together to ann&hope, a lot. ann&hope was like a smellier, messier version of TJMaxx. and of course there are the traditional beach, food and TJMaxx trips with my cousin, anytime we get together.

but one of my favorite places she and i used to shop at, was this old hidden second-hand store in the heart of newport. lucky for us the rich mansion tenants of the beach town would discard clothes without ever wearing them, tags and all. it was like steeping into amuseum, seeing all the junk jewelery, the white gloves and old ladies hats. it was always fun and always cheap. and then there was the beach, of course.
