♥ CAUSES

  1. Dogs + @vsas_ras – This society, the shelter, it’s volunteers, + the animals who they serve are a saint. Our pitty-pup Ms. MoneyPenny is a Verona Street dog! She’s a rescue who was a stray found wandering the turf of the Public Market in the freezing cold as just an itty bitty with a huge gash of a scare on her back. (Our other dog, Rocky, is from Lollypop.) My dad works across the street from Verona Street so it made sense we adopted from here.
  2. Fashion + @shoppeppermint – Affordable + Boutique. Trendy + Classic. International + Local. What more is there to say about Peppermint on the corner of Park + Meigs?? … Well actually, a lot. {See Below.}
  3. Shopping + #shoplocal Barbara Ellen Shops Local. ‘Nough said.

$4 when you bring in doggy treats.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS

  1. Buy your favorite dog treats
  2. Walk or drive to Peppermint
  3. Donate dog treats inside of Peppermint
  4. Get $10!
  5. Shop now + get $10 off your purchase OR Shop later + receive $10 as a gift certificate

$8 when you bring in doggy treats!!

$10 full dollars is bank!
Unless you plan on spending over $50, it beats 20% off any day

<$20 when you bring in doggy treats! {Burr. It’s getting cold.}

HERE’S HOW IT REALLY WORKS

Interested in something for you, gifts for another, or getting an early start on the holiday shopping?? Peppermint is your spot.

IMG_9370

$12 … when you bring in doggy treats.

  1. Unique. Quality. No one is going to have the jewelry, accessories, scarves, shoes, + clothing that Peppermint offers. Partially because much of the clothing Tanvi sells comes from her own Peppermint line that she designs! And almost all of the jewelry is locally made or handcrafted locally in other regions of the world.
  2. 1 For Me. 2 For You. Peppermint has everything you want, + an innumerable selection of jewelry, clothing styles, + accessories for your: best friend, mom, girlfriend, aunt, sister, grandmother. They even have letter press cards! And if I’m being really honest … it typically goes – 1 for you. 2 for me.
  3. Affordable. Selection. It’s absurd. Bracelets typically range form $12-16. Necklaces, $14-24. Rochester jewelry at $24. Blouses around $22+. I even found a cardigan wrap for $24!! What’s this mean for you???
IMG_9383

$12 with doggy treats!! {It’s true.}

you do the math

With prices this low + a deal this fabulous, your purchase can be as low as:

  • $2 for bracelets + earrings
  • $12 or $14 for beautiful blouses
  • $14 for rocking #ROC jewelry
  • $26 for solid boots
IMG_9389

$26 with doggy treats. {Must see new shoe room!}

HERE’S THE PLAN

  1. Buy some dog treats.
  2. Head to Peppermint before close on Sunday 11/9.
  3. Donate something good to the people + animals at VSAS.
  4. And get your shop on!

There’s a bathroom in the hall–not sure it’s for public use–but. Technically, I could move in. And who needs curtains when you have famous window displays to rival those on Fifth Ave??

Shop Peppermint is more than just a hip boutique on Park Ave. Shop Peppermint is the House of Hip.

Owner/Designer Tanvi Asher sells her own line! Any item with Peppermint label is a Tanvi Asher original. She produces 2 in each size, and has them made in NYC! Asher also supports Shop Local Art Local. While she sells wholesale fashion + accessories, she also handpicks the jewelry + other the rad goods of various local artists. Newest member? Claire Flair by Clair Albertson. { Needless to say, I’m insanely stoked. } Like your 1st friend who ever owned a record player before vinyl evenreturned, everything Tanvi purveys in her shop, imbues the space with the funk + magic.

Nonetheless!

Allow me to atone with my wisdom. Or rather, the wisdom of Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young.

No matter how long and tumultuous and unpredictable and unrelenting our winters are here in Rochester, NY – Spring Always Springs. No matter what. Even if it doesn’t feel like Spring right on the day that marks our vernal equinox, Spring Springs. That’s the natural cycle of life. No matter how long and tumultuous and unpredictable and unrelenting life seems now, if we trust ourselves and act kind to ourselves and to others–if we care for our surroundings wholly–spring will spring to us as well. We will find–and find again–that we are strong enough to weather any storm that every season brings.

Always know this as truth.

Week Wrap-Up: Go To Pieces.

Week Wrap-Up.

The Goal: Post Weekly.

Why: To show you how integral Shop Local is to our daily fashion. Sure, #shoplocal can be special occasion. < I hope it is! > But #shoplocal is also everyday wear for every occasion.

Go To Pieces: This past week shows some repeating pieces I wear all of the time! They are my classics. My staples. My goes-with-everything. My work to weekend. My favorites.

Repeating Pieces.

Blazer. From Treasure Trove Vintage on Park + Meigs. 1960’s vintage and only $30!!! It is soft. It fits perfectly. I’d wear it in my sleep if I could.

Jewelry. I honestly wear all of these pieces all of the time. The past few days, I’ve really grivtated toward Jonelle Maira. She works with reclaimed, vintage items. And they are art. Truly. Coolest detail?? If you look closely at the inside of my arrowhead ring, it’s engraved w the name “Sarah.” Hey! Extra character?? I’ll take it!

Sometime Last Week: Work.
