Modern Millie - Newburyport, MA

There's something you need to know about me:  I do not consider myself to be a fashionista. I'll admit it. I'm usually a little behind when it comes to adopting new trends in fashion. A follower rather than a leader. So you can imagine my surprise when I walked past the Newburyport Modern Millie consignment shop a few weeks ago and saw MY DRESSES (yes, more than one) in the store window.

There they were. Two of my dresses, dropped off just days before, on display for the world to see! And presumably to entice the world to enter this fabulous secondhand clothing store and make a purchase. Now, to better understand my surprise, you should know that Modern Millie has the most adorable, alluring, fashionable store windows in town. Perhaps on the entire seacoast. They took my dresses, now tired and drab from spending years in the deep dark recesses of my closet, and accessorized them in ways I never would have thought of! They made them cute again.

And two days later, they were both gone. Either moved to the store's interior to make way for newer items, or perhaps sold for big bucks that will translate into great new fall wardrobe for me! Either way, I had a glimpse of glory and the fleeting thought that maybe I am more chic than I know. Just maybe.

Visit my favorite store in Newburyport at 41 Pleasant Street if you're ever in town! They've got a fun blog too.
