Zionsville Main Street is a great place to visit with unique shops and restaurants or unwind with a book at a coffee shop or cafe.  Walking along the well preserved cobbled brick road you get a strong sense of pride in the people of Zionsville.  Owners or their staff at each shop welcome customers almost immediately with a friendly hello. My sister and I began our adventure by checking out Lesley Jane.  It’s a fun trend-setting clothing boutique with items that can fit into any gals budget.  Our next stop was a bridal boutique, A Step Above Bridal. I’ve been engaged for a little over a year and thought this may be the place to start planning by looking for a one of a kind wedding gown designed by Antonio Fermin. Not only are his gowns lovely, Mr. Fermin and the other staff are very sincere with all of your needs.  After receiving a bit of pampering there we headed across the street to Grapevine Cottage where we chatted with employees about wine and fun happenings around Zionsville like  Taste of Zionsville and Street Dance on August 6th 2011.  We then enjoyed a great meal at G. Simone’s where I highly recommend their house made lemonade.  Of course no trip would be complete without dessert so I got delectable truffles from Ganache Chocolatier and tasty cupcakes and macarons from Le Dolce Vita Patisserie.  For more information on Zionsville visit www.zionsvillechamber.org or you can contact me for any questions about my visit.

Lesley Jane: If you need something casual for school or dressy for a night out this is the place to go!

This dress showed my curves off and had a beautiful, simple train.  Check out their sale August 6 while snacking on cupcakes from 5 different bakeries!

Happy with my purchase from Grapevine Cottage.  Thanks Wine Guy for such a gigantic selection of wines!
