Happy Monday everyone! Today's question is, how do you follow Angel's Point of View?

You can follow at

Blog Lovin

Check back this week for some new posts till Wednesday. I'll be taking the rest of the week off for family time. If you've been waiting for me to hit the road again, have no fear. I'll be in Charlotte the first week in December, Charleston in January, then again for Charleston Fashion Week in March. I might take a day trip to Savannah, GA, and possibly a trip back up to DC in January.

For my home base followers, I'll be in Lexington often over the holidays and in Roanoke every other Friday or so through February.

Downtown... In Some Dark Alley, Charleston

I love taking couple photos on the street. Something about people who complement each other well translates so well in a photo to me. However, when they asked me to follow them into this back alley I was a bit concerned for my safety. That being said, since I ask strangers for their trust in me each time I snap a photo, I figured it was my turn to say yes. Well worth the walk away from sidewalk.

Happy Veterans Day

Being a Vet myself, from day one of my Air Force Career, I had no plans to stay in for longer than I was due. Although I'm very glad my time is up, I'm very proud I served our country and thank Vets as often as I can. Until I run out of photos, each year on Veterans Day, I plan on sharing a photo of myself or one I took during my enlistment. Thank a Vet today.

1st Roanoke Tweed Run, Roanoke,VA

Saturday was the 1st Annual Roanoke Tweed Run that I put on in downtown Roanoke. I was beyond impressed and floored by how many people came out to ride and dressed for the occasion. It was truly a sight to see and I'm not only proud to have put this together, but to have been apart of it. I look forward to doing it again. Talk of another Spring ride are out. I think I might just do it.


 The best part about this guy: he was just out on a walk dressed like this already.

Novel... Charleston, SC

During my recent visit to Charleston, SC, I caught word of a new shop that was pretty impressive online, so I wanted to see how it looked in person. I stopped by Novel, a showroom hidden away on the second floor on King St. housing Library Vintage, Balboa & Jane Pope Jewelry, Blue Chickadee, and Bon Vivant.

Lauren Lail is the curator of Library Vintage, hand picked vintage clothing and accessories. When I took a look around their showroom Lauren said she only picks clothing she would wear herself. When browsing through her collection, it felt like more like picking through the racks of Anthropologie, so her taste in vintage is more refined than your everyday vintage consignment shop. If I can even get the courage to say "my wife would wear this" when referring to clothing that isn't brand new, something very right is happening. 

In the back of this all white showroom gem, you'll find Balboa & Jane Pope Jewelry, costume Jewelry, as well as a fine line JPJ by DC resident Jane Pope Cooper. I don't promote a large jewelery collection to women (I'm married, it can be dangerous). If you do want more than a few items and want to skip gold, gems, and diamonds, my motto is: make it yourself, or buy it from someone who did. The options for your jewelry accessories here are clean, classy, and probably all one-offs which is key to being fabulous and original.

Also in the back of Novel is Blue Chickadee, hand painted items and artwork that are just cute! I don't really like using the word cute in text, but seriously, Look at those baby bloomers! Blue Chickadee artist/owner Way Way Allen does all the art work on canvas totes, bloomers, onesies, etc.. But seriously, I want to have a baby just to get some of those things (see picture below).

Last on my list, but one of the first things you'll notice when walking into Novel, is Bon Vivant custom stationary by Liza Cleveland. I've been requested by the wife to take her to Novel almost just for this. At least I can re-direct some of my spending from Papyrus now. Get something custom or something hand drawn, yet another one-off opportunity that Novel will offer you.

Novel was a great find. It was a bit hard to score some more dynamic photos since I was carrying a long lens, so you'll have to check it out yourself. I'm kicking myself for not snapping a photo of the stunning ladies who call Novel their work place, but it happens. From what Lauren Lail told me (who by the way is, "I forgot what I was about to say" - Gorgeous), they don't plan on leaving their lovely space anytime soon. Go visit Novel downtown Charleston at 341 King Street, Suite B , (up stairs) which is open Monday - Friday 10:30 - 3. Like many of the new retail surprises that Charleston is producing at a rapid rate, if you feel like you're walking into someones house, you're in the right place. When you stop by, tell them I sent you.
