born to be wild

the last two fotos are from last monday..i'd been so good about clothes shopping (other than a little ebaying..but i swear i'm mostly looking for christmas presents, oopsEdoops) until i ended up getting coffee at gimme with ms. charles of lloyd..which turned into a bop into the city o the L, which turned into stops at vintage shops in the east village and a stroll into soho..we stumbled into a vintage shop on 3rd ave where i found a SWEET lion of judah t--perfectly worn in+so ridiculously amazing for [sorry DB+BD], super round toed saddle shoes (a major upgrade from my old ones which are a little scuzzy looking), +a [majorly belated] birthday present for turnstyle), next stop was trash+vaudville (found THE best jeans for $64!!!! + given that i nearly rationalized spending a gazillion dollars on leather legging by the row this summer--i was delighted to find such a cheap alternative; even better still is having pockets-i love leggings but truely i like a real fact i liked them so much i changed out of my chartreuse tights, flowery dress, +chloe flats--i grabbed my new t+shoes +wore them out of the store..gotta love a full outfit switch in the middle of the day, then the african shop on st. marks found an awesome handwoven straw+leather bag, then love saves the day (mostly lame but i found a vintage playboy i've been looking for+another birthday present), onto circa now for a birthday present+a check in with the ladies (which evolved into the fun prospect of showing my fotos at nicole's new shop COURT in the LES!! we're gonna have a meeting about it after turkey time..i'll keep you posted), we then stopped into patricia fields for a second before ending up on houston where we found all sorts of cheap necklaces (mostly presents), a rad coney island hologram postcard AND a huge campbells soup can!!! (i've been pricing these out for a couple years+i got a great deal)...the shopping day day wrapped up at the pashmina stands on broadway, where i found some leopard..
