But sometimes you just know.
When I saw an instagram shot of this vintage red poncho from El Dorado General Store, I knew.
When I got to the store, I tried to play it cool. I browsed the racks (which was easy since the store is filled with incredible gems). I smelled the candles (check out the Detroit Rose Co. candles in vintage tins). But I knew. I knew that red poncho was coming home with me.
And since then, for months, I've planned and calculated and waited for the perfect moment to debut my purchase (and for the temps to drop). And there is no better time then a fall morning riverfront bike ride to let this beauty shine.
If you haven't been to El Dorado yet, go check them out so that you don't miss out on your one-of-a-kind find.
Trust me, I know.
