This weekend a big event took place here in the ‘hood. The Ogden Marathon was on Saturday. Because Ogden is awesome and the race is a Boston qualifier, our little home sweet home entertained a lot of people from all corners of the country and world in the course of 48 hours. I decided that Friday’s fashion feature needed a little O-town history and I upped my game on the photos for my outfit to support this effort. Historical 25th Street is the road that runs directly in front of Ogden’s historical Union Station. When the railroad was in full force, H25 was called, “the red carpet of Ogden.” Because of that it has always been known for its eclectic group of shops, galleries and restaurants. And you don’t have to dig around too much to find out that it has had its fair share of “good stories” including bootlegging during prohibition, prostitution, and a myriad of other dicey events. But, it is our history and our story and there are some incredible business owners on the street who do everything they can to preserve the culture, history and natural beauty of our “red carpet.”
The details on this outfit are as follows:
Dress: Deseret Industries (Made in Hawaii)
Necklace: Deseret Industries (Handmade)
Earrings: 8th Avenue Thrift (Instagram Shop)
Belt: Michael Kors (purchased from TJ Maxx)
Shoes: Calvin Klein (purchased at Macy*s)
Bracelet: Chic Style (South Ogden, UT store)
www.saraheboucher.com. We were blessed with good lighting and I didn’t have to do too much editing to make something simple, yet awesome for all of you. Good friends are my blessing right now. Well, always, but especially now, I have felt the unconditional support as I’ve had some frickin awesome curveballs. Even last night we were an hour late for leaving because I needed a mental time-out and then I dropped an earring down my goopy bathroom sink drain. UGH. Life. I tell ya. And no offspring to blame it on. But, lemons to lemonade and we made it and had lots of carbs and tasty dishes at Union Grill afterwards.
Until next time, my lovelies.
