this shop makes me so happy. led zeppelin quietly beckons in the background as you peruse highly favorable, carefully–merchandised men & women’s clothes & accessories. no more said. if you’re in sacramento…go. here’s what i found at shop cuffs this time:

brazillian leather!!! perfect condition!! only $14!! avid thrifters know that california has the best vintage/thrift stores in the entire u.s of america, & shop cuffs is definitely one of them.

nac, located in the cosmopolitan & stylish chueca neighborhood of madrid. high-end labels, impeccable merchandising…& free coffee (if you intend on purchasing, of course).

i loved the lower level of this boutique–it reminded me of an ancient taverna.

la intrusa showroom in tribunal has incredibly unique blouses, girly dresses, & fabulous handmade jewelry from local artists in madrid. i wanted anything & everything. located right next to the tribunal metro stop, this was my favorite boutique in all madrid. the whole experience was refreshing & highly influential.

recent purchase…

no6boots
no.6 boots. i have been salivating over these for years. alas, i cannot afford the $370 price tag. luckily, i just discovered that steve madden makes something similar! wheee!

behold! my new steve madden olaafs. i walked all over chicago in these & not one single woof from my doggies! they run around $140 or so, but i just googled ‘cheap steve madden olaafs’ & found them just a little over $100–god i love internet shopping…
