An Expedition?

Top - Victoria's Secret, necklace - made by me, bracelet - grandma's, skirt - Retrospect, shoes - Sweet Life by Dolce Vita

I'm going to tell you something that is generally not the opinion among fashion/style blogs - I despise shopping. I hate trying items on, I hate florescent lights, I hate when the sales girl stares me down while I'm wearing sneakers. Chain stores are too generic, but most boutiques I've been in tend to be a little snobby and uninviting.

Anyway, I went to a semi-nearby town today, only to discover shopping can be fun. It's a quirky little college town, but I wasn't expecting much when my sister asked me to accompany her. Through this outing, I encountered two shops in particular that I'm still thinking about - Green Eyed Lady and Malena's Vintage. The first is a cute mix of vintage accessories with some new clothing items, while the latter wasn't even spotted at first. However, I met some pretty 1950's dresses that made me swoon - and they weren't super expensive! Granted, I have no income, but I could deposit my tax return check... basically, I fell in love.

I love browsing little shops in the city, but items are overpriced and the selections tend to be pretty monotonous. Basically, don't be surprised if I show up on here wearing a pretty little 50's dress.

Oh, and I've made another pendant. This time I used nut beads - the color is more magenta in real life. While in town, I also came across a bead store... so yeah, don't be surprised by what may ensue.

That is all, hope you're well, xox Catherine

PS I'd like to thank you all - I've reached 100+ followers! Expect a little surprise (or maybe more than one) in the near future ;)

  4. Your outfit is super cute! I love to shop...but NOT in stores, online shopping is my favorite. I know what you mean about the snobby people and the lights can be killer plus, waiting in line to try stuff on can be a pain too:/
