Ybor City

February 13, 2013

Ybor City is part of Tampa (in Florida) and has to be one of my favourite places in that part of the world so far. The place is famous for its old cigar factories and you can see a lot of details referencing that – murals, cigar shops and even a lady rolling them on a window. There is eben a Cigar Museum but we ended up not going. Instead we just roamed the streets, had good food and did some vintage shopping!

I got that Bergdorf Goodman skirt – the hanging chains look strange but it looks good when you actually put it on! Plus it’s good quality and was on the half price rack!

We then moved to a different store a few doors down and were surprised at how big it was!

Lots of Hawaiian shirts! There won’t be a shortage any time soon!

What I wore: The cloche hat and bag from Target, sleeping cats dress from ASOS, Bow Shoes from Office (via Ebay).

I really liked Ybor City and we may go back the next time I visit Florida!

    This place looks brilliant!! The shops are so full, I love it. I had to laugh at the picture for the lost ‘cat’ when it’s a possum…those things are so mean, haha!! Not been to that part of America since a child. xx

      I’ve never seen a possum in person but I’ve heard all th stories so maybe it’s for the best.
      Ybor City really is a lovely place. Wouldn’t mind going back there again and again…
