squirrelandwalrus 's Thoughts:

This is one of the dresses I got at Primark a couple of weeks ago! I just fell in love with the butterfly and flower print. I never used to think I was much of a print person, but lately I’ve been all about the florals. I wore this to class the other day, and I must admit that I got a couple of funny looks. It didn’t help that the heels made quite a bit of noise as I walked down the hallway. I don’t normally wear shoes with any sort of height to them as I’m already rather tall, but I figured I can get away with it now that I’m in the land of the tall people! I do quite like being the most dressed up person everywhere I go, though, and if that means towering over my classmates, so be it!

I went to the most amazing flea market last weekend— It was called Ij-Hallen and it only happens every few months. It’s a ferry ride away from Central Station, across the Ij, and the crowds getting there were insane. I completely understood the hype when I got there though, as there were 500 stalls of people selling both their old stuff for cheap as well as tons of great vintage and antiques. My poor friend that I dragged along with me, I don’t think she has quite the stamina for digging through piles of stuff as I do! I didn’t get anything particularly wearable, but I did find an amazing vintage Dutch theater costume for 10 euros. The people who sold it to me were the most charming elderly couple– they told me that the outfit had been in their family for years and they were glad it was going to someone who appreciated it so much! I got a couple of little gifts for friends and family back home too. I think my suitcase back home for Christmas is going to be exclusively gifts and delicious Dutch cookies!
