    Rome had no good shopping, whatsoever.

    Paris had good shopping but that city doesnt believe in sales, at all.

    Now London is where it's at. The entire city was on sale and it was sensory overload seeing everything at a discount. Also couldn't believe my size was available in most items. Here's some stuff I picked up for myself:

    Paul SmithxTriumph mainline boots. Dark burgundy with laceup + sidezip
    [​IMG]

    Agnes b cotton jacket. (agnes b homme in London had an amazing selection, most sizes avail and all 50% off)
    [​IMG]

    Agnes b moleskin trousers with plaid cuff.
    [​IMG]

    Fred Perry argyle cardigan (the guy working there knew me from a mod forum and bought a TaT cardigan from me at one point!! so we got another 20% off the 50% off sale they had)
    [​IMG]

    Fred Perry vneck sweater with cableknit stripes
    [​IMG]

    basic Fred Perry buttondown
    [​IMG]

    Nudie buttondown shirt (I think Rye has this too)
    [​IMG]

    Pringle wool/cashmere shirt (maybe my single fave boutique in London)
    [​IMG]

    and a pair of teal selvedge Pringle jeans


    nice stuff

    I dont think sales start in Paris until 2 more weeks. Ive ordered stuff from Paris stores via mail lots of times and everyone who Ive bought from has claimed thatt here sales start mid late jan. IDK how the sales are like though or maybe they were just lying to me...

    Dries Van Noten Palermo khaki pants. $41 on ebay, when they arrived, they still had the tags from Ron Herman, marked at $460. Can't believe I got away with that one. Fit is perfect, but they are a little light for winter wear. [​IMG]

    Also, GS, those Paul Smith boots are sick.

    Woah! Did you check amazon and all the online textbook-sellers first? They usually save me quite a lot of money. Last semester my costs would have been 280ish for 2 texts and I got them both for <$150. Shouldn't have, but recently acquired (just the pants): [​IMG]

    I DID and $500 included buying 3 of my textbooks from Amazon. One was only $30.00 shipped, and one I found used at the bookstore for $70.00 or so. This has by far been my most expensive semester. The state however paid all my tuition and allowed me a $5.00 book allowance all for keeping my grades above a 3.0, and no, this is not a joke.

    Past couple months: [​IMG] [​IMG] Also, a few small cheap things. Some new boxers!! My tuition only at UF comes to about $1500 a semester. The state of florida is stupid and won't let the schools raise tuition, which is why UF and other florida state schools are having financial problems lately.

    Fashion related...kinda.
    I didn't want to jinx myself after the whole online shopping fiasco I had last month; but, I found this great Jil Sander picture online. I got it from a random little vintage photoplace in Kentucky and it is a press photo of Jil and her models from her first collection in 1975.
    I just got it back from being framed, which was about 10x what I actually paid for the picture. I picked the metal frame since the material reminded me of that inside the Jil Sander store; but, slightly aged as is the photo. i also liked the tick marks because imagining the grid reminds me of Raf's current work for Jil Sander and also an Agnes Martin's work which is one of Jil's favorite artists.
