Strawberry's fields



Last Sunday, when I had to dash to Best Buy for a replacement for our computer, picking it out was not the only challenge that I had to face: on my way to the computer heaven, I was passing Strawberry's and although I normally try to give myself a good kick and hurry past the store as quickly as I can this time, I just knew it was not going to happen. An dit didn't. Now, Strawberry's as well as a very similar store called Bolton's is a retailer chain with stores all around Manhattan. They sell some very cool stuff and if you have time to browse and dig, you can pick up a few amazing pieces every season. Oh, and don't forget thte best part - the prices: most of the stuff is around $30 or less and they have sales all the time. Splendid.
Since my willpower was at its lowest after the mishap with the computer, I couldn't just convince myself that it wasn't really Strawberry's but a mere hallucination and about an hour later, emerged from this blissefull place carrying a bag with the newest addition to my summer wardrobe - a skirt, two nautical-like tops and a headband (the whole thing was about $40!). The sandals were a present for my birthday three years ago and although I have been wearing them for three seasons straight and am going to the fourth one now, they hold up surprisingly well.






Escaping in style (I was runing out of ideas for the photos)




Wearing: vintage inspired lace skirt and nautical top (both from Strawberry's), straw hat from Bolton's, LV sandals.
