Luxe Shopping in the Heartland...It DOES Exist

I am a snob. I'll admit it. I think my city (NYC) is the greatest, but sometimes you have to go back to where it all began. Back to a time before fashion sense and an aesthetic eye, to a place where I wore a TON of colorful (at times too much so) floral dresses. Yup, I went back to Oklahoma.

I was staying in OKC this past week visiting my brother and his family. When in town I usually spend all my time with them, only taking a break to visit my cousins, aunts and uncles, but never taking a break to shop because ...well why...I live in New York. Today while heading to Trader Joe's for Almond Milk my life CHANGED...I saw a store that whispered "high end elegance". At first I was afraid it was closed, alas it was not...WIN! The store "The Consortium" located in the ultra chic Nichols Hills Plaza in OKC was everything I needed and more. From the fashion and accessories to the beautiful books. I just wanted to stay forever, and the owners Donna and Meghan Spears are so charming that you can't help but want to sip tea and champagne with the ladies while trying on gorgeous clothes.

The store itself is styled immaculately, and is like the closet of my dreams (if slides don't change just click on the picture)

 

The owners Meghan and Donna Spears are absolute dolls. You check them out on Instagram. Their link is HERE . Not only did I buy a beautiful slate grey/black Louiza Babouryan (who by the way has a website and IG of beautiful things) flowing skirt, but Meghan helped me style it with my natural hair t-shirt. (which I'm selling by the way...y'all the natural hair shrinkage struggle is real)

AND SUPER BONUS the skirt was 45% off !!!!! Did I tell you how much I love this place:

The Look: Simple grey "Grow-er NOT Show-er" natural hair tee, long flowing slate #louizababouryan skirt, vintage necklaces from my beloved Aunt Mae, rings: the Red one from a store that no longer exists in Amsterdam, the other a lovely black, silver and gold bauble found in Barcelona, with gold shoes and vintage Gucci clutch. A fun outfit that can be worn on a date or out with friends. LOVE!

I never thought I would find the perfect "world traveler" in my own little world of Oklahoma City...but I did. If you are in the area and looking for the perfect "something"...The Consortium has it.
