It was pretty cute because  they set up a little lounge and desk area for photos

I love her sources of inspiration..they reflect so well in the clothing she finds:

Sources of inspiration:

*popart, fauvism and soviet kitsch in aestetical aspect
*animal collective, the books, celebration, beirut, grizzly bear in music
*kafka, kharms, cocteau in literature
*golden age of hollywood, french new wave, 
italian neo-realism, contemporary asian and scandinavian cinema

This time the clothing is from the 1950s-1980s (her interests confirm this)

There is a little more of a mod feeling to this shop, which I like!  I will share the items from Beta Boutique's shop, that Id like to complete my  Fashion Forestry mod  fall wardrobe:
