Speedbump 's Thoughts:

Being back in Riverside is awesome if only for the discovery of a nearby cornucopia of antique malls and thrift shops… all in a 1 block radius. I think there are 3 thrift shops, 2 antique malls, 1 antique store, and one combination antique store/thrift shop there… pretty amazing. So you can guess how I spent my yesterday.

I found a bunch of wonderful 50s and 60s dresses that will be going into the shop I’m opening soon. I’m super tempted to keep them, but I already own so many dresses… Besides, I’m so excited by the prospect of a shop, and I want to make sure the things I sell are genuinely covetable… It’ll be great!

The belt I’m wearing in the picture is from one of the thrift shops. It’s basically one of the most kitschy things I have ever seen, with fake coins and chains with weird tribal-looking charms dangling from them. Still, I love it! For some reason, it makes me think of Vena Cava just a bit, which is always a good thing.

Those shoes are the 60s platforms I posted a while back. They finally arrived! They are as lovely in real life and they fit, but boy do they have no padding… I really need to get squishy insoles for them soon, as I really can’t even stand in them for too long… ouch.

Thanks! The skirt was totally an impulse purchase... first time in a while I've bought something without trying it on. And you totally should have gotten it! It's a lot more versatile than you would think!

Antique malls are awesome! My mom had a booth in one for years then she broke off and opened her own shop. It's kinda a antique boutique. I love going to visit. I always get the coolest stuff!

Haha, antique malls aren't like regular malls... they're kind of like a store with separate booths for different antique sellers. It's kind of a weird and silly name...
