stars and strips

 Shopping is an art.  Yes, you can just stop by your local mall and pick up the cutest outfit ever, but to find something no one else will have, go far away!  I think I will do a post about my shopping tips soon, but here's one:  To find something no one else is going to have, that will sure to be a big hit, drive an hour or so out of your local area and shop in the little boutiques and local stores there. (FYI: sometimes, popular stores get different items depending on their area!)  I guarantee that no one will have whatever you buy!  For example, I always drive far away to beach communities to buy a lot of my casual, school clothes.  I'm not sure why, but I always find clothes that fit my style best by the beach.  The sweater featured above I got near Santa Monica, CA, and I am absolutely in love with how unique and out there it is!  God.  Bless.  America.
