Shabby Chic New York

At last as promised here are my photos from Rachel Ashwells Shabby Chic store in New York



I just LOVE this armchair and cushion...



Vintage Christmas Tree





I really wanted to buy one of the silver bauble wreaths but without any boxes I don't think they would've arrived home with me in one piece so I'm going to try and make something similar.




My mum even got in the spirit of things and made me take this photo as she says we can make something similar



Wouldn't these dresses have been perfect for Natasha's prom last week






My favourite... pink of course!





I look kinda scared here as my items are been rung up!



And here's me all finished posing outside the store with all my purchases!






Unfortunately I packaged all my finds away and sent them away to be stored in a friends loft before I had the opportunity to photo them for you ladies but I did manage to get these cute matches





I hope you enjoyed the photos and the journey inside the store via blogland.
