Anonymous Venice

 

SUEDE SKIRT - Thrifted (Thanks, Mom!)
BLACK CARDIGAN - Frenchi
WHITE TANK - Bebe
TURQUOISE NECKLACE - Gifted from Hawaii
JUTE & RAFFIA BELT - Forever 21, Gifted from Fierce
MULTI-COLORED WEDGES - Cynthia Vincent for Target


Yesterday while my mom, Fair Isle, and stepdad, Henley, were babysitting Princess Sparkles and Pigtails I decided to make the best use of my time by running down to the shop, Anonymous Venice, with my friend FedoraFierce recently took a job there, so we wanted to check out the clothes.  I mean, when you got a babysitter, what's more productive than that?

I know, no shopping for 6 more days (not that I'm counting...okay, I'm totally counting).  So I didn't.  I did try stuff on though.  I mean, how could I not?  They had some fabulous jeans :)  Fedora and I rocked some great jeans (some on sale for only $25!!!) and really cute off the shoulder shirts, you know, the 80's kind with pictures of things from our childhood.  Sooooo cute.  And you can't go wrong with Fierce (my most fashionable friend) telling me what to wear and how!

Don't worry, I didn't buy anything.  But I will... in 6 days.  I even got asked out on a date by a nice young homeless man playing a guitar.  He really made my day.  Almost as much as trying on jeans and rock n' roll shirts with Fierce and Fedora!

I love Venice Beach- I went there for my first time in October and discovered this great vintage shop (the name has escaped me!) Those shoes are divine and I am so impressed you didn't buy anything- such will power!

Hey, just because you can't "touch" doesn't mean you can't "look", right? So when is your date going to be? Hehe!

I admire you for possessing the willpower to try things on and not buy them.
I can't do that.
Then again, I am a total compulsive shopaholic
LAME.

P.S. I love your entire outfit -- especially that amazing turquoise necklace.
