iN tHe sTrAnGeSt pLaCes...

It makes me giddy when I purchase amazing things in odd places...
...especially when they are cheap...


Four years ago... I was walking around downtown... I had never before walked into one of those gothic stores before... but I was mesmerized by this very odd black shirt they had there...there were like 73 or 37 different ways to wear it...

I did not end up getting it cos I got frustrated after wrapping it around the second time...
Then I spotted an amazing dark princess dress... in a very dark and forgotten corner...


I tried it on... and almost wore it out the store...

Pricetag:$18!!!!

The tulle ... the amazing print... all for eighteen Dollars!!!!!!!!!!


I whipped out my card so quick... before they realized they had forgotten a zero... lol

Dress:Random Goth(ic) shop, Shoes: Spring shoes... Bracelets & Rings: Swarovski, Hausa man in Nigeria, etc

I'm a nicer person when I wear this dress... I tell u...

ps: I have been back to that store twice since... and have not found anything remotely cute...
