I went shopping last night! I need a new blazer to go with my new skirt, because I decided to get it in white. That's right, in 2011, I'm going to try white instead of black as my foundational hue! Wish me luck around plates of spaghetti.

Anyway, I went shopping in all my favorite stores along Belmont last night. Didn't find anything (except an orange scarf and some rye whiskey) but it was still a remarkably fun way to spen... more->
