Shopping Adventure: Bellingham
After a few days of rain, today was beautiful and warm - perfect day for a drive to the excited states. First stop, Blaine postal outlet then Bellis Fair...doesn't sound like much, but I just get a kick out of discount shopping.
So I picked up 3 tops that I had won on eBay - so cute! (Forever 21 is a shop full of little tops and bottoms, oh and they're super cheap.) Next, Tar-jay, Express and Ross.
Lots of stuff at Target is good from far and far from good. There were some cool skirts and tops but upon further inspection, were kind of crappy. I got lovely Swell earrings. Then off to Express for Editor pants - supposed to be the best pants in the world or something. Well, they are good. Bought em in super dark denim. Nice! Last stop was Ross...they had real Gucci sunglasses for 35 bucks! Didn't get em tho. Found amazing green Steve Madden pumps and groovy Nine West sunglasses.
Then, on the way home, my tire blew out on the I-5 at Blaine. Had a nail in it...don't know for how long. The tire shredded and smoked and everything. Took a little longer than I'd anticipted to get home on a dinky donut spare tire. I don't think I even spent 100 bucks today on all the stuff I got but now I have to buy a tire. Not so fun to shop for.
