So that shopping trip to Toronto? Uber-successful, by my cutthroat standards. (Probably the first time I've been to Toronto, and not cried in a few years too!) H&M was the store I was most excited to visit and the one where I bought the most stuff. There I acquired: a satin black tote bag with tiny white polka dots and a cartoon cat on the bottom left hand corner. A white spiked belt - 'cuz I'm all about the spikes. (Fight me bitch, I'm tough.) A gorgeous chandelier necklace. It's so sparkly and pretty and perfect for wear with low-cut shirts. A low-cut camisole from the lingerie section with cute little inconspicuous giraffes on it. So ligt and summery! However, my best purchase didn't come from a foreign chain store. It came from a little hole-in-the-wall vintage store and is...Ta da!!!
A fabulous leopard print coat for only $20! As of now it's a little big but with a few minor nips, tucks and new buttons It'll be a brand new leopard pea coat! (Okay, maybe brand new is pushing it. It'll still smell like a bus stationwith an AIDS ridden hobo living in it. Okay, that was overdoing it as well. Musty is the word for it's smell. Which is perfectly acceptable for a vintage coat.) Anyhow, I can't believe I was able to function normally without it and I have the feeling this coat will be my one and only love of all of time. For this week at least. Now people will be able to credibly call me a crazy old cat lady. (Tee hee).
