a velvet slouchy bag that I found at a random store. The fabric was twisted in the middle, making a very unique sense about it.

I miss it. even though its not mine.

mikeijames, how come? didn't like it?



softgrey, the boots are très chic! (although the material would have been very delicate and sensitive, right?)

I started one, too... here.

I recently didn't buy a distressed denim blazer by G-Star, and on the same trip also didn't buy Tsubi jeans or denim jacket. Saved a bundle!

Well not today, but yesterday I didn't buy...
-an uber-soft brown knit/croched hat ($38)
-a funky-weird multi-colored woven hat ($36 and it made me think of Ale )
-a funky-weird ethnic coat-thing that I thought looked cool ($265)
-a cashmere sweater that felt divine ($675 ...ha, yeah right, like I could ever afford that)
-a beautiful blue felted scarf with ribbons felted in...it was wonderful ($160 or $190)
-an awesome belt thingie that wrapped around twice...studded, but in a cool way (uh...$65, $85, or $165...can't remember--too much)
-a wonderfully soft scarf in nice colors (the price was high, but I don't remember how high)

OK, I the only things I almost bought were the first two hats...the rest of the stuff is hopelessly out of my price range. But I wanted them and didn't buy them, so I thought I'd share anyway.

I still regret the hats...

A CD called "Ozark Sheiks" by Uncle Cuckleburr's Champion Possum Carvers. But I'm going back after it tomorrow. I listened to it in a record store yesterday, and one of the songs is totally stuck in my head, and it makes me very bouncey and happy.
