And you thought cupcakes were the best thing you could get from an airstream trailer.
It only gets better. A new pop-up boutique called Bootleg (oh-so-apropos a name, ain’t it?) is running out of an airstream trailer in Austin.
Austin is like a second home to me, and I go there every year to visit a dear friend. The South Congress area is known for its funky shops, crazy signs and airstream trailer parks purveying barbecue and whipped cream-injected cupcakes.
As if Austin wasn’t wonderful enough, with all its food truck airstream trailers, now there are the beautiful mobile art pieces/tiny bits of architecture called shoes coming out of them, thanks to one Sarah Lewis, an Austin stylist.
Photos of the trailer and her beautiful fringey shoes after the jump.
This is the most awesome shoe store I’ve seen in a while. It basically looks like a big shoebox, and I love the alliance of shoes with illicit activities. I always feel a little bit like I’m breaking some rules when I’m shoe shopping.
A photo I recently took of Hey Cupcake!, an airstream trailer near Bootleg that serves cupcakes injected with whipped cream in the center. So go get your whipped cream-injected cupcake after you go shoe shopping. Or before. Either way is good as long as you’ve got sweets and shoes!
And what about these gorgeous fringey shoes that, to me, are Austin and New York all rolled up in one? If this is a sneak peek, I can’t wait to see more. I hope to interview Sarah. Do the shoes include vintage? Who are her favorite designers? Does she have any favorite shoe travel destinations where she buys goods for her store? Would she want me to visit and do a photoshoot in her trailer???
Hopefully, the scoop on Sarah and her magical shoe trailer soon.
Some deets from her Facebook page:
Her mission: “To make you squeal and change your life via your feet.”
What she does: “I travel around the world. I pick really rad shoes. I bring them to Austin. I photograph them and put them in the store. Then I ship them back all over the world…Austin gets first dibs…”
How virtual shoppers can get in on the action: “To request a shopping lookbook to charge-send, just give me a ring.”
