Meeting Elanor in San Francisco!


One of my favorite moments in California was when I got to meet Elanor of Missing Lovebirds! As soon as I booked my ticket to San Francisco I knew I had to try and meet up with her while I was there, and I was so excited when she agreed to do some vintage shopping with me in Haight-Ashbury. Elanor is one of my favorite bloggers, and let me tell you, she is just as wonderful in person! I had such a fun time browsing racks of sometimes quite silly vintage clothing (like super soft fur coats), talking about blogging, and taking outfit pictures, including a few sweet jumping (and squatting?) shots . I have to say, I really felt like I was talking to and spending time with an old friend. It was so easy to talk with her, and I had such a great time strolling around the Haight. I'm so thankful that blogging has allowed me to meet so many lovely ladies like Elanor who I can now call friends. I can't wait to meet up with her again next time I'm in California, and if she ever visits New York I'll have to repay the favor and show her around! :)
