Shopping from Paris

I know this may be hard to believe, but the only thing I brought back from my Paris/ London trip was chocolate and dishes. Not one, single, individual article of clothing. Well, a pair of shoes, but that's it. Who goes to Paris and doesn't buy clothes? I know, I know, but there was so much to see and do, and shopping seemed so secondary.

Because of this, something inside me couldn't hold back this weekend. I had a burning need to buy cute clothes (surprise, surprise). I always start at the thrift stores to see what I can find. I scored a pair of Sam Edelman shoes, unworn for 20 bucks and a Nanette Lepore skirt for 30 bucks.

From there, I went to one of my favorite stores in Seattle, Impulse Boutique. They carry super cute, far too expensive clothes, but you can always find something, more like 10 things to buy.

So, I bought this. . .
This is my new top by Yoshi Kondo (Japanese clothing designer based in Paris). Since I didn't buy clothes in Paris, why not buy something made there.
