VA (AND BEYOND): A SURPRISE SHOPPING SPOT [CLOSET ENVY]

By Nora Zelevansky / September 10th, 2010

Picture 20

Unless you were in the market for a bonnet with matching butter churn, you probably wouldn't travel to Colonial Williamsburg for clothes shopping.

I didn't go there for that reason either.  But, on our recent east coast jaunt, we took a break from beach lolling and pit-stopped in Williamsburg, staying at the fab Williamsburg Inn.  On the hotel's grounds, there were ducks and geese and I even spotted a little cute beaver kind of thingy, so I could hardly tear myself away.

BUT when we finally wandered through town, we happened upon a boutique called Closet Envy, that was having a sale.  Not that I had any expectation of really finding anything, but I sorted through the "Sale" rack and came across Rebecca Taylor's above purple "Perfect Party" dress.  In my size.

This picture doesn't do it justice because there's really pretty stitching and the back zipper has this cool blue tag etc.  But anyway, it was a no-brainer, along with a Rebecca Taylor "By Bye Blouse" (see below), which was also 70 percent off and also looks so much LESS cute in these pictures.  What is the deal?

Anyway, my mother made a purchase too, which proves that the boutique is worth a stop, even for pieces beyond Rebecca Taylor sale items.

Next time you're in Colonial Williamsburg.  Maybe when your current bonnet wears thin.

  1. A good amount of time I find myself chucking a long, which is a perfect way to start Columbia 2011 my morning and Mens Columbia Interchange Jacket a great way to unwind at the end of the day.

  2. For any folks invested in more and better resident contribution, that is a knock back, i believe. But strangely enough, the newest one-pager Can involve many responsibilities around consultation.

  3. Ok. So we received a few crvtiaee responses from you fans out there and are in the process of making those ideas into real, living, breathing songs. Our friend Margaret suggested a toddler anthem I am toddler, hear me roar! We hear you toddlers, as you are often deafening. So here are a few words inspired by all of you toddlers more to come: (c. The Rockdoves, 2011 Heart Rise Music) Cause I’m A Toddler What makes me think I can climb this treeEven if I’m only 2 3 ?Cause I’m a toddlerThat’s what I tell ya’I’ll show you right now how I can rock this trikeI like what I do and I do what I likeCause I’m a toddlerThat’s what I tell ya’I’ll make a tower so tall and knock it down with one swingAin’t no one else here who can bring what I bringCause I’m a toddlerThat’s what I tell ya’And though we might not have the words to say all that we’d wantWe know that we have got it and we’re not afraid to flauntSo put your fist in the air and let the people know for sureI am toddler, hear me ROAR!!
