"Jerseylicious" , Charles Junior & co, ...and CUPCAKES.

Happy Wednesday people!

I was at the mall today, and found nothing...Usually I have no problem shopping, I think because the current style of most things is just completely rhinestoned- out I have no urge to shop much in mainstream malls or chain stores...I was looking through purses at Macy's and I am not kidding when I say everything is BEDAZZLED. every purse looks like it fell into a huge tub of glue, and after that, a huge tub of glitter or flashy tacky rhinestones. No wonder I hate shopping at most of those stores, unless you're completely jersey-fied or completely clueless, those styles are not very classy. And don't get me started on ED HARDY.

Trade these:


Vivien Cheng's vintage collection (First two sets of pictures)

I think what needs to be remembered here is that GAWDY is not classy, it's tacky.

For people like me who just aren't a fan of the over priced bejeweled shirts, jewelry and handbags there are plenty of boutiques or vintage shops to check out that you can get a great bargain for a lot of neat one of a kind things!

Some of my favorites include : Goodwill (they also have an online shop for things to bid on) Salvation army, Peachepot Clothier, Orangewhite Chipre(online shop) , and these are just some off the top of my head...You can find antique/vintage type shops in your area, just gotta look for them! There are also a lot of cool second hand shops that you can trade in your clothes and buy things in return like the Buffalo Exchange in NYC.

This is some of the jewelry I got for a bargain at a salvation army, all ranging from 99cents to 3 dollars!

Vintage goodies!

Some photos from today, the weather is amazing!!

And now, Charles & friends

to finalize this blog entry- I know I have been all over the place but bear with me...Alex & I finally made some halloween cupcakes! And they were delicious! Here are some of our designs!
