So from right now I'm on a much anticipated holiday to the US. I have been planning and saving and getting excited about this trip for months now! First stop is New York...
I'm spending my first 5 days in New York on my own, meeting up with a couple of people that I have met online (one of them being Daffny from A Vintage Nerd!) and doing things like seeing my favourite musical on Broadway!
Then the girls who are on the Vintage Shopping Tour with me arrive, and I will spend 10 days touring and shopping in New York and Massachusetts with them. Thank fully I'm taking an empty suitcase with me..... cause I think I'll need one!
On my final day in New York I am meeting up with Peter from Male Pattern Boldness. Peter would have to be my favourite sewing blogger, and I am SO EXCITED to get to meet him and go shopping in the garment district with him!!!! FABRIC SHOPPING!!!!!
Then I fly to Portland, Oregon...
Now, if I was excited about the rest of the trip, I am ECSTATIC about this part!
I will be spending 5 days with Julie from FabGabs Vintage (hands down my favourite online vintage store - I swear, half my wardrobe is from Julie!), and meeting up with Sara from Lilies and Remains (oh my god I love this girl's style!) and Jesse from Brighter Bakelite (bakelite...need I say more?). I have heard so much about Portland, and I'm really excited to explore it with locals in the vintage scene.
I may need this to bring my luggage home...
You think I'm joking, don't you...
If anyone sees me and recognises me PLEASE come and say hi! I would love to meet any and all of you!!
I will be back home on the 11th of September, and I will be doing a few posts to catch you up on my adventures in the following couple of weeks. I'm pretty sure you are all going to want to see what I got up to! But if you can't wait that long, I will be posting on my Sew Retro Rose Facebook page, and on my personal Instagram page (my username is @beccieleathley) while I'm on holidays, so please come and follow me!
See you all soon!!!
