Doubling as a vintage boutique and salon, Mercantile is a center for style in downtown Phoenix.
Mercantile offers men’s and women’s vintage clothing and accessories, along with handmade local goods, and awesome hair cuts!
“Classically timeless and refreshingly current. Resourceful and sophisticated. Effortlessly tasteful,” is how Shauna Thibault, owner of Mercantile, describes her shop. With the number of rare finds I have from this local shop I couldn’t help but agree with Thibault, and it is no surprise that the pieces are hand-picked with nothing but good taste.
Leggings are my savior, especially in these winter months. They are comfy, cute, and go with anything. Pair with a tunic or sweater and you’re set for the day; it’s no wonder why I have an outrageous amount of them stuffed in my drawers.
Patterned leggings have been a huge hit in the last few years, and it doesn’t look like they’re going anywhere anytime soon. Simple or daring, there are a numerous amount of styles and patterns I’ve seen; but who knew it was so simple to make your own?
It’s a new year and a new semester, which always means a recap of the previous one. January brings change, a fresh start, and new inspiration for La Moda Gabrielle; But before I dive into the fashion of 2013 it’s time to say one last goodbye to 2012 and thank it for being good to me. It’s strange to think that someday 2012 will be vintage.
