vegan grand rapids. day one-hundred-four

IMG_2744
I named this after my favorite website because i took a trip to Grand Rapids! It is so close to my hometown and I know many great people there that I frequent it a lot. So when my pseudo-cousin-in-law Emma asked me to go thrifting with her I snapped up the opportunity! There are many thrift stores in Grand Rapids I have not yet been to so it was very exciting for me! I was on the hunt for Christmas presents, found a few but came home with all sorts of craft things, because who doesn't need 25 random zippers? We stopped for a late lunch at my favorite vegan establishment in the area, Bartertown Diner. It is really amazing even if your not a vegan i think you would like it.  I got a lot of glares for my faux-fur jacket but HELLO its obviously fake.....people get really funny when they turn vegan......Anyway, I decided to snag some pics against the Cult Pizza wall, man i cannot wait for that to open! All vegan pizza! YUMMMM.

Emma has a really cool style that is so effortless and awesome, probably because she is from England! (Accent envy!). We talked a little about it while eating our delicious lunch. She has her favorite jeans (which she gets from a shop where she is from) and likes little boy t-shirts (Im a fan too!) and assorted sweaters. I love her hair, her boots and her bag too...shes just got this style that's all her own! Mega shout out.

  4. Great pictures! I love the look of Faux Fur Coats. I just bought one at Burlington Coat Factory this weekend. It was a great deal at $30 less than I had seen it for in the department stores and I love the style.
