I’ve been around the block… once… twice… a dozen times! And I’m all for taking another stroll down the coolest and most stylish block in St. Pete! I’m obviously talking about the 600 block in downtown St. Petersburg!

My girls and I always enjoy an afternoon in downtown St. Petersburg, where we shop the 600 block boutiques, check out the art museums and grab a bite in one of the  restaurants. I’ve found some super cute vintage and custom made pieces from the 600 block, like this vintage postcard romper from Misred Outfitters that I’m in love with!

About five months ago they had their first ever block party, and I’m happy to share that there will be a block party happening again this year! The 600 After Dark Block Party is Friday, October 21st from 6-11pm on the 600 Block of Central Avenue in downtown St. Petersburg (in between 6th and 7th street off of Central Avenue).

The 600 Block Party

In Designers, Events, Fashion on April 19, 2011 at 3:15 pm

Once upon a time in a hip downtown land, lived companies that embodied the cool lifestyle. These tenants got together with the new tenants of Central and 6th street in downtown St. Petersburg to form the “600 block.” A common theme in the arts and strong sense of community brought the hip downtown area together. The 600 Block has established themselves as downtown St. Petersburg’s newest and hottest spot for art, fashion, music and more. With fashion boutiques, art galleries and concert venues, that easily pleases any downtown hipster fashionista for a shopping spree afternoon or artsy night out, no wonder it’s the hottest spot in downtown St. Petersburg.

On April 9, 2011, the 600 block threw a block party to celebrate St. Petersburg’s artistic scene and ten new businesses opening on the block. It was a very mystical night with artistic expression and collaboration of many artists connected to the block. The night was filled with art from Pale Horse, Eve-N-Odd gallery, Blue Lucy and more. Then to top it off, the night came to an end with a fashion show featuring the ten boutiques on the 600 block – MISRED Outfitters, The Trunk, All Sewn Up, Bentley’s Boutique, Sweatshop Wares, Ramblin’ Rose Upcycle, Rex A Million, Aleka Phoenix, 1 of 1 Customs, and Cozette’s Boutique.
