I <3 St Marks!



This is what I wore today....I know, not so interesting. I just wanted to show the shirt, but I ended up having a bit too much fun with my flower pots, and I look like a dinosaur.

I want to thank everyone for all the wonderful comments I've received on my last two posts! I never thought I would get that many =D

Yesterday I had quite a grande (yes, the e is for emphasis on how awesome it was) time moseying around St. Marks in the city. Here are some pictures of the day =D


First we went to BAMN!, the awesomest place ever. Its an automat, like they used to have in the 60s. The food is in vending machines and you have to pay in quarters and open the drawer to take out your food. Its very greasy/oily fried stuff, but its really good. I ate a grilled cheese sandwich. I actually didn't take this picture; I took it from google images, because i couldnt get a good enough shot and this one is so EPIC.



I found this AMAZING SUPER AWESOME vintage/thrift store that was fuckin HUGE with fair prices... Unfortunately, the people who I was shopping with weren't really diggin the 'used clothes' and didn't want to spend too much time in there...I almost got a pair of boots for $15, but they had this weird stain on them. This is one of those stores that you need to be in there for HOURS to find good stuff...great for a rainy day. I am DEFINATELY planning on going back there in a couple of weeks or so, and I will actually buy stuff (Belle, wanna go during spring break?).

On the way home...um...well....I WENT TO URBAN OUTFITTERS.
I'm soooo sorry but I honestly can't resist. And getting two awesome dresses for $10 each when they used to be over $50, is quite an accomplishment...especially when they are PERFECT for this spring.


This is an ombre shirt-dress thing...I am planning to pair it with black stockings and my silver heels maybe??? I'll have to try it.


This is a BEAUTIFUL floral dress that I am totally obsessed with.... =D=D=D=D=D
I cant wait to wear it
=D=D

Okay, this is a really long post so I am going to end it now. But I have a REALLY SUPER AWESOME SURPRISE coming on Tuesday and Wednesday, so get excited =D

Ooh, I love that shirt. I've been eyeing that uo floral dress for a while, but it was too expensive, I hope they have it on sale at my uo.

I like that floral dress! St. Marks thrift stores are super expensive, I went to a few when I was NY and couldn't bring myself to buy anything. I'm a cheapass.

Zoë said...

the one I was at wasnt extremely cheap but wasnt expensive either...

it was like $7-10 for shirts $10-20 for skirts, and $15-30 for dresses....shoes were like $15-30 as well.
