Double Decker Dresses



Even though I'm a die-hard modernist, I find myself occasionally intrigued by vintage things. I mean, good design is good design, whether it was made recently or decades ago. And this unique entrepreneurial venture caught my attention, so I had to share. I'm sure you're all aware of the mobile food truck movement (of which I'm a huge fan--in case you're wondering, my current obsession is Coolhaus in Austin, TX), and I loved seeing a new twist on the idea towards curated shopping experiences.

This project is headed by one creative chic from Portland (Oregon), Erin Sutherland, who found a 1965 double decker bus and decided to convert it into a dress shop. Genius. It's called Lodekka, and she also has a blog/website by the same name.  Erin spends part of her week shopping at thrift shops and flea markets to find her products then artistically displays them in her truck for sale.  The rest of her nights are spent singing in her vintage jazz band.  Is this girl cool, or what?
