To tell you the story of LSD Boutique is to tell you a beautiful story of a woman believing in herself, her dream, & the power of timeless pieces. I linked up with Regina, the owner of this local shop a few months ago after we found eachother online & I was immediately so excited to see someone local sharing amazing & affordable thrifted clothing. I set out to find her small shop located inside the Main Place Indoor Market in Mcallen & fell in love with not only her style, but the reason she began this endeavor.
Why i love thrifting
A change for the better
Leaving a secure job is one of the toughest things to do. I felt instantly connected to her story as I also quit my teaching job a few years back, in hopes of finding myself in more passionate projects. I can’t tell you how difficult I think those types of decisions are, but I can tell you how amazing it is when people decide to follow their dreams whole heartedly. The ability to create something all hers in the midst of all the chaos this year has thrown at us is something so so admirable. Not only do I love the idea behind her store, but I also fell in love with all the unique ways she brings her own magic to her space.
Butterflies, vintage patterns, classic barbies alongside other memorabilia greet you as you enter Reginas magical space. She is forever changing her shop, finding & sharing inspiration on her social medias. (LSD Boutique)
I am someone who worries & focuses a lot on the future & what is going to happen next. It is definitely a beautiful change of pace to walk into a space filled with items that take you away from your inner thoughts & let you imagine a world where everything is beautiful, everything is special, & its ok to play, even if its just a little while.
The lsd looks
I found myself stying homemade dresses with new biker boots. I elevated a casual tank top with a silk 90s vintage robe. I got to wear shoes I couldn’t quite fit into my style before. I repped my favorite 2000’s band with a skirt I was previously too afraid to wear out. I changed up the style of makeup again, & again. Although these types of things may seem superficial, I think its important to point out that many of us have suffered from lack of inspiration this year. Although many might think that fashion is just that, they may not realize that fashion can spark new worlds for those of us who may feel stuck. I found myself looking at old journeys in a new way. I found myself wearing new outfits with old silloutes & feeling brand new. Days where I only left my place with a regular tee shirt & jeans turned into excuses for me to express myself, not only for the world, but for myself.
A great time to support creatives
When I think about the journey these clothes, Regina, & LSD have taken me on these last few months, I feel pretty grateful. I truly think LSD Boutique changed the way I wanted to write on my site. I could have just written another Christmas blog recommending you spend your $, listing things, & telling you why I like them, & why you need them, but this isn’t just another beauty/fashion blog. This is a place I hope to share with you how amazing life can be if only we open our eyes to the people & experiences making it worth while. Regina sharing her story, her clothes, & her life with me has made me reevaluate the simple things. Not only will I continue to support local people following their dreams like Regina during the holidays, I will also take with me the lesson that I don’t need crazy expensive things, or trips, or shiny possessions to feel new, & beautiful, & feel loved this holiday season. I hope you follow along Regina’s journey as I’m sure her shop will continue growing & growing. We together can make a true difference in each other’s lives, & if all else fails, at least we will look HELLA CUTE trying.
