Saturday I decided to take a short trip to Seattle to check out their sales. Woke up early ( 5:00 AM) to catch the 6:45 Choooo Chooo Train to Seattle.
Seattle is basically the American version of Vancouver. I find the resemblance between these two cities freakishly close. Obviously each country's " culture" adds a bit of touch to it but overall they are very similar.
First up was Barney's.
I almost took these Givenchy's home but in the end I was put off by the trendiness of this shoe and decided against it. I then stopped at Nordtrom where I was lucky to find the last pair of Dries Van Noten at 70% off and lucky me in my size ( or the closest adult size to mine). I finally had my feet measured and guess what? I am actually a 4.5. Which explains why this fall's Pradas in 35 were too big. You have no idea how many times I was directed to the kids section. Its almost getting embarrassing. I wore them today to my anniversary dinner so you will see them in my next post.
I then stopped at Anthropology which has become my favorite new store especially for home decor. You have no idea but I wanted to take half of their kitchen stuff with me home. Lucky for us Vancouverites, the sales girl told me it has been announced we are getting 2 Anthropology stores in January of next year. I saw this dress as soon as I walked in the store and had to take it home with me. I love the strong 50's silhouette from the sweetheart neckline to the swing skirt with crinoline underneath.
Happy me heading back to catch the Chooo Chooo train back to Vancouver!
