Yesterday my family went into Harvard Square with my friend. We went shopping at Newbury Comics (for CDs), Urban Outfitters, and American Apparel. While I only got a few things, I am proud of my purchases (and the fact I only spent $54). At Urbans (my friend hates it when I call it that) they had some pretty good sales, but most of the stuff was still on the expensive side and I didn't like anything enough to buy it... until I saw these:
And they were on sale for just $40! They had a size 9, so I tried them on, they fit perfectly, and I had to get them. My friend liked them but kept telling me they would be cooler if they were thrifted, though. I punched her in the face. Just kidding, of course. They're also online, but for $80! I don't know why they had them for so cheap. Not that I'm complaining...
Also, the stylish cashier asked me where I had gotten my t-shirt and I told her about Uniqlo. She wrote the name of it down, and I loved my shirt more than ever.
We went into American Apparel and immediately grabbed handfuls of lamé things to try on. Most of it looked like crap (tube dress+days of stuffing my face=not good) but we both decided, on an impulse, to buy the lamé bras. I got silver and she got gold, and we're still trying to figure out how to wear them under clothes (obviously we aren't going to walk around in just the bra thingy). I also tried on this mens striped t-shirt. It looked so slouchy and cool, and then I looked at the price tag. $28! For a plain t-shirt! Haha, no.
On a side note, the AA store is a bit sketchy. I mean, the changing rooms are right out in the open and the curtain doesn't close all the way. If you wanted to, you could see right in. My friend and I took turns holding it shut while we tried things on. But then again, what do you expect from American Apparel. Good thing the clothes are (mostly) really cute!
p.s. No one really has a Boston accent like that.
