Dear Lizzy,

May 9, 2011

As I mentioned a earlier my mom and I went on a girls only shopping excursion on friday. 
One of my favorite stops was Dear Lizzy

Dear Lizzy is a boutique and bistro that is french, vintage, and funky. 
My mom and I walked in and both gave an audiable gasp.
So adorable.

Dear Lizzy is the kind of place that requires the "magazine skim". The "magazine skim" is when you flip through the pages of the magazine just to get a quick look over of the whole thing. Then after you have done that you go back and read every detail on every page.

Basically you are so excited to see ALL of it you have to skim the whole store first before you actually start shopping.

I managed to rein myself in and only by one thing.
Vintage Office Stamps. I thought they would be perfect for sending cute snail mail from Hawaii back to family.

We and such a great time {shopping and eating}! It was the perfect activity for a 
mother + daughter on mother's day weeked!
And, I can't stop thinking about all the cute things we found! 

-xoxo love you mom!

Glad you & your Mom loved this place! I always have to walk around at least 5-10 times just to make sure I've seen everything. Such a creative, inspiring place to be- I always feel creatively charged when I leave. Love the "magazine skim" referrence- so TRUE!! :)
