What we learned and saw in San Antonio

Happy Friday!  Leigh Ann and I are back with what we learned and saw in San Antonio while out and about this week!

Yes, when we go out looking for fun places to show you that are off the beaten path, we always learn something and this trip was no exception.

Today, we are taking you to a lovely boutique which combines local artwork and fun fashionable styles….Iva Style in the Alley on Bitters.

Come see what we learned and saw in San Antonio today…

WHAT WE LEARNED AND SAW IN SAN ANTONIO – FIRST

What we learned and saw

Let’s shed some light on what we learned from what we saw first.

What we learned and saw in San Antonoi

Iva Style has amazing accessories and there was so much to see.

But, what we learned and really enjoyed is how creative she is with vintage brooches…which are not for sale.

She uses some of them to decorate the throw pillows throughout the shop since she also sells vintage furniture.

I love this idea and may use it at least once at home.

And she used this amazing brooch in the back of an oversized garment for better fit.

Another idea I am going to try at home!

WHAT WE LEARNED AND SAW IN SAN ANTONIO – NEXT

Iva Style is a perfect blend of local artwork and beautiful fashion which is a party for your eyes.

A boutique that honors creativity and local work really inspires my loyalty.

It is the type of boutique you do not want to leave….in fact, there is a couch that speaks to me sit and stay awhile!

The little Italian leather crossbody bag is one of the most popular accessories and they re-stock often.

The clothing is lovely and we saw several short and long dresses we liked.

We also learned and saw that there is a local Japanese artist who makes accessories with Japanese kimonos.  Her work is gorgeous!

This rack shows you her work with long earrings…I will remember these for gifts.

The hand-painted sea shells were amazing….I appreciate artists so much who can create beauty like this.

Leigh Ann and I both enjoyed our time at Iva Style and do plan to return.

Something I personally confirm as we go out and about with the intention to share what we learned and saw in San Antonio is the importance of small businesses to a community.

I want to encourage all of you to support your local small businesses.

With the shut downs followed by a recession, we need to do what we can to help the small business owners stay alive.

I want to see more shops like Iva Style!

We will take you to another one soon.  Thank you for encouraging us to take you to these behind the scenes places…I hope you are still enjoying the trips!

Remember, Sunday is the last day for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

As fall fashion infiltrates into the retailers, some have cut even more on their summer clearances.

You can check out your favorite retailers on my SHOPPING LIST PAGE.
