Sorry I have not posted in a while! I have been quite a busy bee applying for art programs, graduate school, and summer jobs. I have four interviews for internships coming up, so I am pretty excited about that. However, I would have to begin one of them in July because…. I AM GOING TO ROME IN JUNE! That’s right…Rome! I will be attending a 4 week summer art program in which I was nominated for by a dear friend and professor of mine. At the program, I will be exploring Rome, Italy and painting and drawing the landscape and architecture.
Anyways, this weekend I went to one of my favorite thrift shops, Montgomery County Thrift in Bethesda, MD. I copped some great deals, popped some tags, and spent pennies. I also attended a store closing ( R.I.P) of a local shoe boutique, Zelaya. Everything is 90% off, so get your butt over there and support the last days of a small business. I scored a pair of beautiful Joie sandals for $23.00 compared at $230. They have great selection of size 5 shoes, but there are significantly more shoes sizes 6-8. Brands like Kate Spade, Joie, Betsey Johnson, Bebe, Diba, Chinese Laundry, and other small designers are included in the sale.
On Saturday, I found some great deals as well. When I was in Georgetown for an art opening, I stumbled upon a charity sale conducted by a local non-profit. Local DC fashionistas donated their designer duds to this sale and I definitely found my share of finds. This included a beautiful practically new Chanel bag for $450 compared at $2000+. My purchase came with a FREE Opening Ceremony Sweater that retails at over $200. I do not think I am going to keep the Chanel bag, because I need money at the moment. Regardless, I am stoked about my find.
