It's Tiara Day!
Every day is Tiara Day - a sparkly surprise in Frederick, Maryland. Vintage and art-to-wear clothes from local, independent designers in bundles of sizes all in a happy, crinoline tumble among Parisian linens, elbow gloves, and Deco jewelry. Housed in a 19th dry-goods store, the pretty chandeliers, like tiaras themselves, hang from 18-foot-ceilings. The industrial silver HVAC pipes overhead add an edgy twinkle as do the disembodied baby head mannequins. Stepping into the shop on Frederick's hip, cafe-filled N. Market at W. 2nd , words like "clever," "charming,"and "sweet," spring to mind - I thought instantly of you.
