Italy has just been the BOOM. I mean, besides My grandmother being on my back the whole time going all "MANGIA MANGIA" on me and saying Im too pale and short and skinny and a bunch of other stuff that makes me feel really good about myself...
I feel like such a hypocrite for going all tourist on you after mocking them on halloween, or such. oops. But I was too tempted not waste the picture.
Afterwards we went to visit my moms friend who took me shopping amongst the fleamarkets of Italy! During this time we ran into an INCREDIBLE thrift store that had exuberant 80s EVERYTHING. Im so glad I didnt bring my life savings because I would've sacrificed college fer this store. I had a limit to 25 euros so all I could buy was this tiny jacket but it's still is pretty magical in its special shiny pruple way.But what really kicked me in the butt for not having money was this whole pipe which carried hanging vintage sequined jackets. They were just like the topshop ones that I long except half the price, legitimate vintage, and like SUPERNOM times cooler (although I still would never pass down one of those topshop jackets. Birthday in less than a month...hmmmm???)
They also had really unique pieces like this awesome silver/green/gold bow headband. Or below- the supa sequined corset? WOOT.
But the coolest thing of the entire store? The salesperson whom her name never learned. :( she was sooooo nice and awesome and supa cool and like the utter shizzzlebomb of mother booms. Plus she gave me a dicount on my jacket :) She probably thought I was some freak for wanting to take a pic with her but I got her approval of posting it on ze interweb.* Note allthe sequins behind us my friend. BE BLINDED.
I didnt realize how much of a priss I looked like. Pretend I am making this face.
Leaving next sunday. :(
