This still isn't right as it should all balance out in the end, provided the krone fell in proportionate value to all currencies

I think the prices went up because they're now more well known and demand has gone up (see: NMWA).

Th most likely scenario is a combination of the two, but it's still big increase.

Yes, nice city to visit for a couple of days in the summer if you are 25+ years old. But I think there's a good reason why the city has a 'stay two nights and your third night's free' policy.

Japanese brands are so unbelievably unconventional. I'm searching for an item by a small brand that by outward appearance only makes apparel and clothing yet while I search through their list of dealers I find a shop that carries an entire 10 piece set of ceramics and mugs with silly faces on them, even a ceramic roof for your garden bird house! All made by the same brand which I was sure only made clothing.

wait are we talking about DC now because that place can be a mighty good time if you're content with doing all your jawn coppidge online.

to be fair though, i think a lot of people on sf are content doing all their kopping online regardless of their location.

lol if you think anywhere, save for a few unpopulated islands and maybe some deep sea trenches, are anything but shameful, disgusting piles of human filth and worse

When I bought my first Norwegian Rain piece two years ago (before they were as widely carried as they are now and I had to order directly from them), I thought the listed price on their website would take out VAT once the system finds out that I'm not in EU. However, I was told that the listed price actually is the price without the VAT. But keep in mind that this was 2 years ago, so they might have changed their policy on this since then.

i feel like dc is also a great place to spend weekends when you're between 21 and 25. or at least it was when i was in that age range. and there's enough there that i still come up a few times a year.

Went to Uniqlo for the first time in a while to stock up on some random beater stuff for vacation/work. Somehow ended up spending $150. I regret nothing.

What I came for:
White linen shirt (these are super underrated for summer)
Dry active (or whatever they're called) shorts
A bunch of no-show socks

What I picked up in addition to the above:
Liberty x Uniqlo shirt
Keith Haring T
Dark blue lightweight water resistant parka



Also, I really regret not picking up the Dior Homme melange knits from SS15 (I think)? There was a black/blue version and a yellow based version. Now I can't even find the pic I took/posted here of the yellow one. Damn you search/albums failing me.

Talking about Ottawa. I've never been to D.C., though I doubt I'd be invited to the good events if I went.

I'm not either frown.gif. I have to dig them up on Facebook, which incidentally is an amazing way to find pockets of life behind what can sometimes look like a sleepy city

dc gets some surprisingly good music if your willing to go out on weeknights, since most acts do weekend shows in nyc
