Went Shoppin'

I don't know if it was Nomad's bad influence - gotta love a bad influence from time to time -


if I really did need new clothes for work (I did) (really)

but I went shoppin' today, and it was fun.

Went in with a friend,

Went to my favourite used clothing store, got 5 skirts and a tank top, plus a super cool jean jacket, that is definitely Nomad's influence, I had been missing mine, buried in the basement and all. Got a jean jacket for youngest too.....(reused)

Went to Desigual , which I love and usually jerk back in horror from the prices, but sucked it up and bought a skirt...resisted buying a dress and a shirt as well, so that isn't toooooo bad....(handmade)

and got a super cool bag....from Vaho Trashion which uses the banner ads from all over the city to make super amazing bags...waterproof and you just wipe them down. I am super happy as women's skirts don't have pockets, which makes me super I needed a bag, one I like, and now I have one. (Recycled)


Happy day.

I don't go shopping all that often, and when I do I like to have a plan...

had a plan, worked the plan, now it's done.....

Some days you just find everything you need and then some. Those are the lucky shopping days. The unlucky ones are when you go out with a list and can't find a blessed thing. What fun to have so many new things at once!

Oh, man, those bags are awesome! Now I want one for myself . . . which should be an adventure if I decide to try and order one.

Congrats on finding so many things you are happy with! New clothes really are fun, when they are just want you wanted.

You are such a lady now - good for you!
I rarely clothes shop and always with a plan – can’t do the shop for the sake of shopping thing. But such great satisfaction when you find what you’re looking for – and more!

Yay Vaho! I got one of their bags for Christmas and I´m in love with it.

There are so many products made in Catalonia that unfortunately don´t make it outside the Paisos Catalans... You´re lucky to have them at your disposal all year round.

oreneta said... was indeed an excellent shopping day, I am still craving that desigual dress.....

JG, let me know if you really do want one of those bags, I could probably help you out with it......

Beth, it was excellent...I wore skirts all the time in the Bahamas, and I am back to it again...only there are no pockets....

egaliede, we are indeed, and know it!
