getting cloche

Last post from shopping on Abbott Kinney in Venice… would that I could afford this adorable little cloche hat from Stronghold… their store is the highlight of the neighborhood and their website is pretty cute too.

Founded in 1985, Stronghold was theĀ first denim manufacturer in Los Angeles. Their brand retains the old tymey flair but the store is chock full of hip cuties trying on their pinup-style high-waisted shorts with stripes of varying widths. The fit is very small so you might need to go up a size or two, but if you try a pair on you’re likely to leave with a new favorite jean.
