Heatwave

After spending August's premiere day shopping and getting my drivers permit (G1), I realized that I hadn't updated this place on all of my summer purchases so far. Today I bought a zebra print LeSportsac bag, along with a simple gray knit wrap dress and an ingenius book titled "Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt". The bag is lighweight canvas, perfect for travelling and so is the wrap dress. The book is witty and adorable and I plan to make the iPod cover idea tommorrow for my friend's 17th b-day. So anywhoo, on my trip to Ottawa to see Metric in concert, I bought the tee featured below at the merch table. Plus I thrifted a pair of black woven leather oxford shoes. Then, there was this guy in the mall selling wicked 3 for $10 necklaces! Out of that deal came a hematite peace sign necklace (Green Party forever!), a "what-looks-like-gigantic-animal-teeth-but-is-really-black-plastic" necklace and an amber pendant. What was even sweeter than the price was, perhaps, that my aunt paid for it. What a sweetheart.




P.S.: Here I include the funniest quote from right-wing America I have ever heard.

"The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians." -Pat Robertson, televangelist and former US presidential candidate. Thank God he didn't win.

yeah im at the dumptique pretty much whenever its open when i happen to be in marthas vineyard. its amazing- all you have to do is bring in something- like, junk from your garage- and you can take whatever you want! i found an amazing striped vintage-looking sweater there last summer.
