mall madness (and I'm not talking about the board game)
Yesterday, something possessed me to go to the mall. Foolish, I know, Christmas is days away. . . But I thought Andrew just might have to have a Ben Sherman from Urban Outfitters to round out his collection of presents.
I was wrong, so wrong! The entire scene at the mall was so nauseatingly overwhelming that I swore to myself that my mall days were over! I found nothing at Anthropologie or Urban Oufitters for myself or anyone else on my list. It was one of those days where everything seemed overpriced and poorly made. (Yes, vintage clothing has spoiled me greatly).
So for now, I'm on a mission to buy only from independently owned boutiques that carry UNIQUE, quality products. . . So I was elated today, when Seamsters' blogger Amy recommended a store named Creatures of Comfort. She mentioned that they carry (my latest obsession) Eley Kishimoto, but they also stock tons of other amazing designers(Chie Mihara, Imitation of Christ, and United Bamboo, to name a few) and at prices that are not insane!
So here's the game plan for 2007: Shop Creatures of Comfort and stock my closet with amazing finds!
