I had a glorious weekend that was equal parts productive and fun. The productive part? My friend and I had a joint yard sale where I got rid of half my bag collection – I really only need five black purses, not ten – and other odds and ends. The fun part? The Atlanta Indie Craft Experience on Sunday:
H&M jumper • Lar’s Bottega Veneta purse • shoes from Shopbop
I.C.E. Atlanta is like a giant Etsy festival – talented crafters as far as the eye can see. This year it was held at Ambient Plus Studio and the Good Food Truck was parked outside so I was able to get my hands on an Island Cone: spicy tamarind cone filled with cold Jamaican jerk sweet potato salad, coconut rice and topped with mango sour cream. Soooo good.
So it was great weekend followed by my first day back at school, ugh. At least there are two huge events to look forward to this week. Lar and I are hosting a Google hangout on Thursday at 6 p.m., so make sure to follow AsianCajuns on Google+ and we’ll give more details soon. The second event is the Style Bloggers of Color Conference/Mattiepalooza this weekend. I can’t wait to see my fellow Atlanta fashion bloggers – they all prove this wrong!
I wish you could have explored the Indie Craft Experience with me and Alison. You would have been inspired by all the creativity in the room. I bought you a little gift that I’ll be sending you as part of a little birthday package.
It was actually in the 60s on Saturday morning when I was working at the yard sale and I was cold! I think my skin is way too thin for Scottish weather. When I’m come in August, you’ll be the one wearing shorts and I’ll be the one wearing fleece-lined pants and a winter coat.
love you! xoxo, Cath
