Weekend in Richmond


This past weekend I packed my bags and headed to Richmond, VA to visit some sorority sisters and bEw! I have been to Richmond several other times, but I never got to explore the city as much as I got to this weekend.
 I think my favorite place was definitely the Hall Tree which is an upscale consignment store. I had never been to a consignment store before, but now, I am hooked.
Total price paid for both of these skirts? The top is Lilly and the second one is Vineyard Vines... only $40! Such a deal, it felt like stealing! I also made a stop at Peter-Blair with bEw, and I fell in love. I could shop 'til I drop and they don't even have anything for women! However, they had a great selection of grosgrain watch bands...
I just had to get a pink and green one. I couldn't resist... plus, there are not many men who could rock a pink and green watchband!
I ate a whole lot of food... I kid you not. Above is jDf, lBa, bEw, me, and D at Conch Republic. It just opened up and is right on the river. It was so fun to sit outside and be able to watch the sun set.
I also ate at Carrytown Burgers which was SO good... I got the alifornia burger and it had delicious guac on it!
Above: bEw and I in the "fan". I got to learn all of the Richmond lingo as well which is a whole lot more confusing than I thought... maybe even more confusing than the Pittsburgh lingo... nahhh. Overall, I give Richmond rave reviews. Good friends, good food, good fun, and good shopping... what more could a girl ask for? What did you all do this past weekend?
Have a fabulous day!
Yours,
sCe

Looks like a fun weekend! I love the pink and green watch band...I know a guy that has that exact one. How much fun are consignment shops? It’s the best to make a little extra $ off of the clothes that no longer fit! xx

I did a post on Peter Blair last week!! Next time you're in Richmond check out Clementine's in Carytown--it's my FAV consignment shop. I also am a huge fan of Carytown Burgers & Fries and am going to have to check out Conch Republic!

Apparently I went to The Hall Tree a little too late on Saturday! I did get an adorable Ralph Lauren Polo dress for $12, a Vineyard Vines pink belt for $11, and a pair of seersucker shorts for $6. So I guess that was still good!

I'm glad Richmond treated you well! <3
