IN Fashion Friday: Bus Stop Shopping?!

Last weekend, my aunt Gloria and I had a girls' afternoon, enjoying lunch on the canal at Creation Cafe and taking in the play, "Love, Loss and What I Wore" at the Phoenix Theater (see my prior post about the play here).  To our delight, we also got an unexpected opportunity to do a bit of shopping when we happened upon Retro 101 parked outside the theater.  Billed as "Indy's First Mobile Boutique," Retro 101 is a converted 1978 Chevy bus that will roll to special events, shows and other functions.  It's like a food truck, but with clothes and accessories.  How Fun!

Retro101 features new clothes, fun accessories and items made by local artisans (maple bacon jam, anyone?)  I really liked some of the accessories, especially the turquoise daisy statement necklace featured above, and the lace shorts Gloria is modeling are adorable.

Owner Heather Pirowski and I had an immediate connection - she's a fellow ginger who, like me, was challenged to accept her red hair as a child (for years I said my hair was strawberry blonde or auburn, depending on the season, though my high school Spanish teacher and many friends insisted on calling me by the nickname "roja," which is Spanish for "Red").  Heather recently shared her story, and the entrepreneurial spirit that led to Retro 101, here.  It's a great read!

Want to know where the bus is headed next, or want it to roll into your next event?  Get all the details here.  It's worth checking out!

Fashion is what you buy; Style is what you do with it!
