impulse buys...

DSC06666DSC06661

i'm in salt lake city right now and had a moment of weakness at forever 21. i will be coming back with three more pairs of sunglasses than i left with. the ones on the left kinda remind me of linda farrows, and the ones on the right are wayfarer style but in a clear peachy colour. i was kinda resisting the wayfarer trend for a long time, but these were just really fun and only $5 so i figured why not. now that i see them on myself i kinda don't like the colour... buyers remorse... i blame the heat- i think it fried my brain.

the third pair are round black ones that are slightly reminiscent of the famous chanel ones.

i also got a cute denim mini skirt and a pair of dark denim wide leg trouser jeans- i will share pictures soon.

unfortunately retail therapy was the only thing keeping me sane here in slc. one more day and then i'm back tomorrow night.

oh, also i thought i would mention (since i posted about them before) that nau is up and in business again! they were bought by outdoor apparel company 'horny toad' (the most horrible name for a brand) i met with the founder again yesterday and they will be opening up select retail stores with their unique line of fashionable sustainable active apparel. they will also be relaunching their web store. i didn't realize this last time i met him, but he kind of resembles and sounds like rick owens- i reeeealy wanted to ask if he was related or something, but it would have been way too embarrassing because i'm pretty sure he's not related in any way... i was just fantasizing that he was and that he could hook me up with a job with ro in paris... a girl can dream...

forever 21 is such a guilty pleasure. i like the peach sunnies!

i like the peachy ones a lot, actually! i think pale colored frames are really great. seeing impulse sunglasses purchases makes me wish i had contacts so i could experiment more. hope you're having a good time in SLC. i haven't been there since i was 7, and all i remember are those organ pipes!

I really like F21 and their cheap selection of sunglasses. And the circular ones are so Chanel!

minirobot- hmm... i honestly haven't had all that many great experiences as far as haircuts go. my last few hair cuts (before the san francisco one) i got done at moods in yaletown by christopher. i'm always happy with what he does, but not blown away. i think i'm going to try a few other places- somebody mentioned that there was a good japanese salon called misako that i might try... sorry i can't be of more help! i will try misako next time i get a hair cut and post how it goes.

erica- i love pale frames too, but i'm just not sure they look good on me- i feel like they blend too much with my skin or something... i find slc to be a bit creepy, but luckily i was there less time than last year.

wendy- they are hard to resist! i only bought the round ones at first, but i had to go back for more!

I love Forever 21.
Cool, I'm in Park City, a small town about an hour away from Salt Lake City.

I really wish they would bring a forever 21 to Vancouver among other things lol. I love the frames, they look great on you :)

i don't think they're too pale for you, especially since you have dark hair.

i'm glad you feel the same way about slc as i do. :)
