Today was jam packed with fun! We woke up at 5:30 and had to be ready for 6:15 at our door, so it was a really early morning.
We had breakfast at egglicious cafe, and I enjoyed a plate of vegetables, eggs, hashbrowns, and toast with jam.
Nuvango was kind enough to let us visit their headquarters on Tuesday July 19. We got to see their amazing new line of clothing that includes many styles, including maxi dresses and scuba jackets. We did a full photo shoot in their gorgeous, well lit room which was a ton of fun.
They also gave us a full tour and an explanation on how they create all of their products; from design to print to assembly, everything is done in the one building. Finally we got to see the view from their rooftop patio!
We visited the Bata Shoe Museum on Tuesday, July 19 at 11:30 a.m. After visiting a museum in Spain, I think I’ve found a new passion of mine. The talent it takes to make the art is inspiring. We got the opportunity to see a collection of old and famous shoes, including a size 22 double wide pair of shaquille o’neal boots! It was interesting to hold so many different shoes from so many eras. I can’t imagine walking around in some of them!
At the museum we also got the opportunity to visit their “Perils of 19th century fashion” exhibit. This draws attention to the lack of education that was involved with fashion, as well as the ridiculous measures that some people took, and will still take, to alter their appearance. For example, we learned that in the 19th century many clothes and even wall paper were dyed with arsenic, an extremely dangerous poison, as it created a brighter look. This is similar to how people today will use a tanning bed with dangerous UV rays to achieve that “sunkissed look”, even though it puts them at a high risk for skin cancer.

After the tours we got the opportunity to shop!
