there's something about the city that i am just drawn to. everything is just bigger and brighter and i can't get enough of the constant stimulation. the first day of the trip all i did was shop. not much different from the second day, but i mean how can i not take advantage of the situation. the weather was nice, so i was happy i didn't have to lug around a huge coat. a stretch cotton maxi dress was perfect for the almost warm weather. i bought it in the midst of winter, on the sale rack from forever 21 and i cant stop wearing it ever since. truly madly deeply long sleeve tee over top with my crown vintage clogs.
to me, this is what makes up Philadelphia.
old architecture, cheesesteaks, and crazy fun artwork.
it was a sunny spring day so the park was filled with people reading on benches and walking their dogs. my cousin bought this coat right when we got there. thrifted and the bright green color is just almost as cute as she.
best purchases of the trip. an Urban Outfitters book, Lychee Fizz cocktails, and my thrifted trousers. i will have to do another post soley about them. they were five dollars and scream glamazon. a lot of my best finds lately have been from thrift stores. i highly recommend them because with a little bit of search and effort you can find amazingly cheap unique pieces. take advantage of all of the clothes that are in need of a home. and even if you find something that you like doesn't fit you perfectly, it was so cheap anyways that you wont have to feel bad to spend the extra couple dollars to have it tailored to your size. tailoring is key.
the french quarters were my favorite part of town. filled with mounds of amazing pastries. if you haven't had a macaroon, please go get one, and i mean now.
