Even though classes have started at Melina's university, Ali and I are still winding our way westward and enjoying the sights (and sites...) and foods that the southern United States has to offer us. This impromptu shoot happened last week at South of the Border, a totally insane, campy rest stop in South Carolina. Way to go, by the way, to the Wikipedia author that brought some Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown realness to this article- I'm pleasantly surprised.
Anyway, how could we not stop to take pictures with the jackolopes, burros, and dinosaurs that co-habitate at South of the Border? Fortunately I was wearing one of my cuter road trip looks- this Kensie dress that I bought with credit from a Providence consignment store called Into the Wardrobe. I was drawn to the sort of deconstructed mid-century print and 1950s silhouette that this modern piece offers, and think it works marvelously in this kitschy rest stop!
Until the next stop...
