Yesterday Scott and I spent almost the entire day in downtown. One of our many stops throughout the day (promise to share more about these stops later) was Stinkweeds Record Store. This local record shop has been around for ages, and is owned buy one of the coolest ladies in town.
Scott and I went to Stinkweeds to pick up our tickets for the Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin show, and also to see if they had the most recent Neon Trees album. Generally Stinkweeds is known to carry CD's and records from almost any indie band you can think of. While there I realized that my outfit was supporting this indie influence (tweed mini-skirt and moccs? yes!), and figured it would be best to take a few shots in front of the exposed brick that lines the back side of the building.
Necklace: Vintage typewriter J charm (wish you could see it better)
Grey footless tights: c/o We Love Colors
Sunglasses: Ray bans
Both Scott and I have been going to Stinkweeds since we were in our teen years. It was always the place to get the best music, and to see amazing bands for free (remember all the great in-store shows they used to have PHX residents?).
Scott has a leather pouch that he wears every day. It generally holds his ipod, and sometimes other little things in the tiny pocket. Over a year ago he found it at a local Goodwill and the cashier gave it to him for free because there was no price on it. This pouch has become quite the conversation starter, and almost every day Scott gets asked about it.
The other day I picked up this new pair of moccs. I've had my previous pair for almost two years now and they were pretty worn out. To me, moccs are the most comfy pair of shoes you can wear, and generally I like to wear them with everything.
This pair of Lacoste shoes is one of Scott's favorites. He got them for his birthday from me a few years ago, and has taken great care of them to keep them looking nice.
Also, I've found that I don't smile in a lot of my photos. I've figured this is pretty much a sin since I went through months of headgear (oh yes, I said it), a year of braces, and eight years of wearing my retainer (I still wear it every night). Here's to smiling more.
Do you have a favorite record shop in your area? What's it like?
