Unrelated to my dilapidated bowling alley exploration; A while back, we introduced you to Bek of Your One Stop Pinup Shop / Bexerity (also mentioned here) an incredibly talented, sweet lady with an eye for good ideas and good people. For example, I absolutely love the employees of her shops. Meet Bek, Erin + Borana. They're are all such beautiful, stylish ladies and I love following each of them on instagram, they've introduced me to some awesome brands + items and I love seeing how they style pieces I already own. Bek saw that we posted about petticoats (here) and was sweet enough to send one of her handmade ones my way.
I absolutely LOVE my normal petticoat, which is the Hell Bunny "short" petticoat, because of the shape it produces, but it's itchy. I usually suck it up and wear it all day anyways, but it annoys the shit out of me. I've actually never owned a petticoat that WASN'T itchy and I assumed a little irritation was just par for the course since most of them are made of crinoline.
While I did have to take my new Bexterity Petticoat up and in, as it was a bit too long and a bit too big in the waist (I'm 4'11" and my waist is 26 inches), I was incredibly excited to find that it isn't itchy, which is a first! I've also never owned a colored petticoat. I guess I was afraid a color would show through on my lighter colored dresses, but since I already own a white one, now I can swap them out... and colored ones are so much more fun. If you follow the link you'll also see they all have an adorable bow at the top.
Luckily, my urban exploration didn't end in another creepy dude yelling weird stuff (I am crossing my fingers that was a once in a lifetime experience) but I was bummed to find that there was no way inside, I peeked through the windows though. It looked very empty, no awesome retro bowling relics there besides the signage. It was fun to walk around the building nonetheless and now I want to go actual bowling... although I am horrible at it. Can grown-ups still play with the "bumpers?" That's acceptable, right? ; )
