So I've done a little bit of shopping here in Spain. Not a lot--trying to practice that whole self-restraint thing. It's going pretty well, except where baked goods and Diet Coke are concerned (as usual). Anyways, I've picked up a skirt, a dress, two tops, and a pair of shoes (for about 75 euro! not bad, huh...).
Here's the dress I got (no full-length mirror in Espana, sadly). It's from a store called Sfera and it was about 22 Euros-ish. It's a scarlet chiffon-weight dress with little white polka dots, tank sleeves, smocking at the waist and a bow tie at the v-neck. The belt is vintage and the leather jacket is from Wilson.
I really, really like this dress. It has a very Alps-y feel to me for some reason (probably the Swiss dots), and I love the sweetness of the ruffles and the bow, especially against the toughness of a leather jacket.
And I might even be getting a little better at this hair curling thing! Now I'm just waiting to go back to the States so I can buy a curling iron like a big girl and stop using my straightener.
