Friday was a day of new things for me; I tested out the fringe trend and stopped by a new coffee spot I’ve been meaning to try for the past few weeks. Fringe has been on runways (and at Coachella, but I still haven’t been so I’m not going to get into that) like crazy lately. While I would love to buy an awesome fringed suede jacket and wear it everywhere, that’s basically buying myself a one way ticket on the struggle bus in this weather. I recently got some gorgeous fringe sandals from Zara and decided to take them out for a spin.
I decided to go really simple with the rest of the outfit because the heels were the main focus, but I think for a special event, the heels would be really cute with a printed jumpsuit/romper, or with jeans and a blouse. Although the heel is high, the shoes are surprisingly comfortable (I’m being dramatic, there’s a tiny platform that makes the comfort not so surprising).
Now on to the coffee…
Propagation is what I would describe as a furniture store that sells coffee, not exactly the dictionary definition of a coffee shop. That’s what makes it so interesting. Walking into Propagation is an experience in itself, from the moment you see the succulents outdoor and through the window. The space is minimalist and it’s finest and I can guarantee there’s no way you can just stop by and pick up a drink to go. The drink I got was a mazagran, which was Portuguese coffee lemonade in this case. I had to sweeten it up a bit with sugar (I have the biggest sweet tooth if you haven’t noticed), and unfortunately it just wasn’t my thing. I’m not going to write Propagation off just yet as their grand opening is coming up this Sunday, April 19th, so the past couple of weeks were just a test drive. I love that a lot more local businesses are getting publicity and are popping up all over social media and I am excited to see what else comes to the Mills 50 area!
And for the random tidbit that accompanies nearly all of my posts, check out one of the dumpsters in the parking lot behind Propagation, painted by a local artist:
