Hi Fabulous ladies! JoJami here in absolutely gorgeous, Asheville, NC!
Boy oh boy, was I ever surprised when I hit downtown Asheville to check out the shopping. Talk about artsy, funky and vibrant! Yes siree, did I have a blast just window shopping until I dragged my husband into this amazing boutique called Minx.
At first I thought that all the clothes were vintage but then I saw this display of new shoes and fell in love with these little black booties.
Slipped those puppies on and it was love at first step… had to have them!
Now I want you to notice how adorable the sales gal is! Of course she is NOT 40 but I thought it was worth mentioning that her outfit would be age appropriate for any over 40 gal.
Moreover, many of you all have been asking…”What do I wear with straight legged jeans.?” Check out her flat loafers. This is as new trend for fall that we just adore!! Paired with a t-shirt and cropped short jacket it looks casual yet pulled together!
Then as my luck would have it, in walked the owner, Rebeccah Mark (who just turned 40, welcome to the club!)
JJ: Rebeccah, your store has a certain funky “vibe” to it, what is your inspiration?
Rebeccah: Well, I used to be in a band and saw that there was a need for clothes that were more artistic. So I put my music career on hold and opened my shop. I have always loved to dress more creatively and been drawn to vintage, British fashion and anything mod.
JJ: At first glance the clothes here look vintage…but I was surprised when I saw they were actually all new.
Rebeccah: Yes, I love the styles from the 30′s and 40′s. I find that they are the most flattering, so when I see something that reminds me of that era I bring it into the store.
JJ: Do you think your style is going to change now that you are 40?
Rebeccah: Lol! Yes, I do and I think I am going to have to think more about how I dress. It’s going to be an interesting time of transition for me!
JJ: Oh, I see you have on some black short booties, ha, I just bought the ones on your cute little display table!
Rebeccah: Short booties are going to be big for fall…you will enjoy yours! We can’t keep them in stock, they have flown off the shelf!
JJ: Well I think your store is terrific and that you are a wonderful role model of what “hip and 40″ looks like!
