Rome has been amazing. The monuments are well... very monumental. I esp love that huge ass fountain where we tossed coins in backwards ensuring our safe return to Rome one day or smthg like that. But the highlight or Rome has got to be the Porta Portese sunday flea mkt. We missed going into the Colosseum for that... we could only look from the outside because it closes at 3:30pm (how were we supp to know right).
Anw, the mkt was HUGEASS. It spans for kilometers I think (in my head & feet anw). Everything there was so affordable (unlike the 20 pounds/euros prices at other mkts we've been to in Europe). And there were so many treasures to be found as long as you were willing to dig flor clothes, digging coincidentally being a skill mastered by Debra. We got the stuff in the piks among other things... some of them will prob make their way into Poppycocky Vintage when it reopens in Jan 2010.
Off to Firenze tmr, we've got a train @ 9am to catch!
Autumn is here. It's been so cold in Nice, forget about beaches- you can't even leave the house without a 2nd layer. Anw, using my profound pychic abilities, I hereby declare that stripes are taking over the world, evident here. (My sis and I) Would kill for a shiney one. Oh yeah, Eugene and I got matching timex 80 watches in Paris (pls don't vomit). Mine's obv cooler though, for self- explanatory seafoam strap reasons. Lastly, check my Chanel glossimer in Jupiter (brite red with micro red blue & gold glitter) & Lush Ghost shower gel ( white shimmery 'haunting' lily scent). It's the month of halloween and I'm all set to be a Pontianak.
I LOVE PARIS. It's my second fav city of all time, losing out only to London because of the language barrier (& topshop). I find the 2 places rather similar actually. Good subways, awesome big brand shopping, awesome indie shopping (paris a lil better), awesome vintage shopping (lndn a lil better, hard to beat brick lane), beautiful parks/jardins, huge comprehensive museums... my only regret is that we prob spent too much time shoppin than to sight see and stuff. But no worries, another trip to Paris is scheduled at yr end. Je t'aime.
Like, only the most comfy ballet flats in the world. Was so tempted to buy this ruby red glittery pair but @ 135 euro... I'll hv to think about it and wait til the end of the yr when I'm back in Paris. Besides I still have my (scuffed) galactic ones to wear in the meantime I guess.
