Vacation Day One *warning, very girly post below)

Today was a beautiful day. Ladykave and i went shopping, and i'd say I scored. I'd like to say that Lady is my shopping good luck charm, because I swear I never really find stuff in the city(that i pay more than 20bux for), but I found three pieces today that I'm convinced rubbed off from Lady's usual lucky finds. That girl is always getting great things when she goes to Beacon's, and so I felt very honored to have her with me today. (thank's for keeping me company on my first day off, man!)

I think that I spent half of the money that I said would be my "play" money when I hit the balmy streets today on my first day of my new york city "vacation". I am so excited about these three things, I had to be a total girl and post them for you.

1st find: My first spring dress of 2007. It looked tiny on the hanger. I always have the problem with vintage dress zippers not being able to close because of those teeny tiny waists. But this dress fit me perfectly. AND peep the eye-let back. Hot. And for once, I dont have to shorten it either. It was worth what I dished out for it (i just better not see it's twin when i go home for my salvation army shopping spree next month... because I'll be pissed. that happened once with this vest i bought. spent like 50bux on a vest a few years ago, and saw the exact same vest/same brand/size everything, but in a better color... for 2.99 hangin on the salvation army hanger. and it was at that moment that i swore off all overpriced nyc boutiques forever!! but, i got sucked back in today)

2nd find: Dexter boots. I wasn't expecting to find these. I've always admired them on other girls from afar, but they've either been way too expensive, or I've had a fear of breaking them in since theyre so well made and stiff. Well, today was my lucky day... because they were half off (yes, half off of 48bux, You do the math!) and they are broken in by whoever wore them before. I have no clue why someone would give away these boots (unless the person died, i really just don't understand why anyone would give them away!!). Theyre beautiful. My shotty photoshop silo job and blurry picture does NOT do them justice though.

3rd find: New Specs. From that awesome glasses place. New lenses will go in them tomorrow. I'm still on the hunt for kelly green glasses, and clear frames... but I guess these silver frames will just have to do for now.

Tomorrows Agenda:

1. I will go to Joyce, and enjoy a ham and cheese (if i'm lucky, they will have almond, but theyre rare) croissant with my usual large coffee with lotsa room for milk. And the Times. Can't say when the last time I read the paper in a coffee shop on a Tuesday morning was!
2. Hit up the china town cheap lenses place to put lenses in my new glasses
3. Get a massage (maybe I'll do this on wednesday though...)
4. Go to a museum of sorts to pass the time while my glasses are getting done.
5. Meet up with Lady to get the side of pork carcass for thursdays feast!! mmmm can't wait!

OH. and most importantly (and this should have been number one), I will get my eye brows done, because that picture, well, that picture speaks a thousand words.

...of to bed I go. with no alarm clock set. :-D
