One of my favorite items that Ann Taylor has made is their “Miracle” dress. I bought this dress quite a while ago during one of those % off sales, and it’s such an easy piece to wear to work. You just slip it on and go. The fabric is good quality and I love finding “DVF” esque dresses at a much friendlier price point.
A few days ago we visited my mom’s for dinner and decided to stop by one of my favorite candy shops growing up, Powell’s! I was happy to discover it was still there and thriving. I’ve never met a kid who wasn’t in love with a candy shop. Well my know-it-all cousin said he didn’t like them growing up, but his mother was one of most Tigery of the Tiger Moms and only served carob cookies during Halloween. Just saying.
One of my favorite features of Powell’s was still around – the 1971 version of Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, which plays in a continuous loop. I’d always thought even as a kid that Willy Wonka seemed oddly detached when Augustus Gloop fell into the chocolate river. There’s theater seating to sit and watch, and nobody hassles you to leave. Heaven for all ages.
On the topic of candy, my favorites growing up:
1. Sour ropes in green apple and strawberry
2. Chocolate covered gummy bears
3. Swedish fish
4. Malt balls
5. Yogurt covered anything
What were some of your favorite candies when you were a kid?
