This week's addictions . . .

I have the distict feeling that I'm still in summer mode, mostly because it continues to be in the 90's here in Vegas. I hate it too because I so desparately want to go purchase fall clothes and it feels impossible when it's so hot outside still. With that being said, here are this week's addictions:

1. The Aux Jumper from Hier Apparel. As you can probably tell by now, I love dresses/jumpers with the big front pockets. This jumper is made-to-order and the shop also carries tons of other cute stuff including purses and belts.

2. Plates With Purpose. This is just one of the custom glass plate designs sold by the Riverside Design Group. 15 percent of proceeds from the sales of these plates benefit different non-profit organizations. Each design is assigned a different charitable organization and this particular design benefits the CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), a non-profit national network of trained volunteers who serve 243,000 abused and neglected children through local program offices nationwide.


3. This journal from Night Owl Paper Goods. I used to write in a journal religiously and then I just got too busy. It's one of the  things I really miss and I actually get mad at myself for not doing. This little eco-friendly journal might just be the place to get started again.

Toast

Find me on Polyvore
No, I'm not talking about bread with butter. I'm talking about Toast, the lovely UK-based clothing and housewares shops. Above are a few items from their Autumn collection. If only it actually got cold enough in Las Vegas for me to wear that lovely tweed coat.

This week's addictions . . .

Happy Monday! I had a Red Bull for breakfast. I hope you're more awake today than I am. Here are a few things I've been eyeing:
Addictions @ Indie Fashion Addict 1. This Raw Hemp Denim Dress from A Fortes Design. It's handmade and looks incredibly comfy. I love the big pockets in the front and the tie at the waist. It is on sale at Olio United for the month of September only.
Addictions @ Indie Fashion Addict 2. As a girl with a love for rubber duckies (and my own little collection), I adore these pond soaps complete with a rubber ducky inside from Karen's Soaps.
Addictions @ Indie Fashion Addict3. This braid tank that can be paired with a cute skirt or jeans on sale at Le Train Bleu. It also comes in plum and looks like it would be very happy in my closet.

Dainty June Fall/Holiday '09

Dainty June @ Indie Fashion AddictPhotos of the Dainty June Fall & Holiday '09 collection are up and I seriously can't wait for it all to go on sale. The best part though, is that all the items in the collection are named after characters or themes from "The Sound of Music," one of my favorite films of all time.

Shopping Destination: Venice, Calif.

I decided that it would be fun to write about different shopping destinations since I love to travel and love to shop. I don't get to travel as often as I'd like, but when I do travel I am always in search for new and different boutiques. Labor Day weekend, I went to Redondo Beach, Calif. for my dad's wedding. While I was there, I ventured over to Venice for a little shopping and found a great street (Abbot Kinney) with tons of cute shops. Here's a small selection of what the street has to offer:
1. Ecookie - 1639 Abbot Kinney - This adorable little clothing store has tons of great dresses, tops and jewelry with a cute little waiting area (seen above) outside the fitting rooms. But my favorite part of the whole store is their candy display complete with Kit Kats, Nerds, Jelly Bellies, Fun Dip and much more for sale.
2. Edna King - 1419 Abbot Kinney - I didn't spend a lot of time in this store as it is sells only men's clothes; however, they had some really cool clothes picked out by owner who obviously has style.
3. Firefly - 1409 Abbot Kinney - I LOVED this shop. Owner Erinn Berkson opened the shop 10 years ago on a whim and is still going strong. It's a great place to go if you are just browsing, although you are sure to find something you like. The shop has everything - books, clothing, toys, unique greeting cards (One card I bought says, "You're a fucking rock star."), jewelry and some other fun knick knacks.
4. Milkmade - 1413 Abbot Kinney - I was very bummed that this store was closed (for an unknown reason) the day that I went shopping. It was established in 2008 and all the clothing on their website looks beautiful. Hopefully the shop will be open the next time I make it to Venice.
5. Ms. Vintage - 1508 Abbot Kinney - Unfortunately, this store was closed as well. I guess going shopping on the Tuesday after a holiday weekend was not the best time. From what I could gather by peeking in the window, the shop has vintage clothing and accessories for sale.
6. Neighborhood - 1644 Abbot Kinney - This is exactly the type of shop that I wish we had in Las Vegas. It's a small store with a really friendly feel to it, something you don't necessarily expect in LA. Although the store is small, it has men's, women's and children's sections as well as accessories scattered throughout the store. They sell some of my favorite clothing lines like Gentle Fawn and Dear Creatures along with many other fun and fresh designers. The store is owned by a husband and a wife team and is connected to Urbanic (see #9) which they also own.
7. Rex Boutique - 1653 Abbot Kinney - This is a great little boutique with all women's fashions. Tons of dresses and skirts, many of which are out of my price range, but some tops and sale items are decently priced. I really liked the clean looking layout of the store and the tree branch wallpaper they had towards the back.
8. Tumbleweed and Dandelion - 1502 Abbot Kinney - The shop itself is surrounded by a white picket fence which sets the tone for what's inside. The furniture and housewares all have a very cottage, homelike feel to them. As manufacturers, they are happy to custom design any and everything for inside your home, backyard or porch.
9. Urbanic Paper Boutique -1644 Abbot Kinney - I've recently become the type of person who spends way too much money on greeting cards and paper goods. As that type of person, I loved this shop. It is filled with unique paper, envelopes, stationary, cards, journals, writing sets and more. They sell several eco-friendly paper goods and have their own bridal lounge, which requires an appointment.
10. Zingara Gypsy Emporium - 1507 Abbot Kinney - Several of the shops along Abbot Kinney are old houses transformed into shops and this was one of them. All the different rooms of the shop are filled with gypsy-inspired bohemian clothing and accessories, including a children's section complete with finger puppets. Most of the clothing wasn't my style, but they had a great selection of jewelry - really cool and unusual pieces. Plus, the owner was absolutely delightful to talk to.


While I was shopping, I found out that September 27 is the 25th Annual Abbot Kinney Festival. There will be music, food, arts and crafts, two beer gardens and of course, shopping. You can find more information on the festival here.

If Only I Could Afford . . .

Big news in my life: I'm buying a house! This is my first house purchase and I can't wait to decorate. It is as if the lovely ladies over at Olio United knew that I was getting a house, because starting today through September 6 they are having a home trunk show which you can shop online. The show consists of many beautiful handmade items, including the above Moonstruck lamp. The lamp is made in Austria by artist Sandra Haischberger and seems to me like it would make any room feel magical.
