Am currently based in Boston for this leg of my trip and took a ride to the burbs yesterday to visit a dear friend. She lives about a half hour north of the city and, of course, we had to do the ladies who lunch and shop thing.
So we set off for the scenic seaside town of Newburyport , which is filled with fabulously unique boutiques and fun little cafes. On the way we passed an interesting consignment store, named Moxie, on Route 1 in Rowley, MA. Of course I had to check it out. Though the owner doesn’t have a website, you can visit this link for customer reviews of her shop. This is definitely the north shore of Boston’s best kept secret for quality designer consignment and cool vintage fashions. Her collection of vintage costume jewelry is some of the best I’ve seen.
Picked up some lovely 50s strapless tulle prom dresses, an amazing Pat Premo floral print full skirted sundress, and a black brocade cocktail dress with a draped sarong front skirt. I also found a nice novelty print Nelly De Grab skirt that I don’t think I can part with. I’m picturing it with red platform wedge heeled sandals and a red halter top. So off to do more shopping!
