As you may have noticed I've not been able to post many photos of my daily outfits, my cooking, the books that I'm reading or my lucky thrift finds because I haven't had the time to either take the photos in the morning or to download them.
So I've been concentrating in posting all of my outings. I do go out often with my friends or my kids and I usually do something that I'm interest in. I have a very small entertainment budget, so many times my friends and I split the costs.
I also always on the look out for discounts from my Union website or from local websites. I love going out because it helps expand my horizons and the view of my piece of Earth and the people that I'm sharing it with.
So finally, Saturday, May 28th I made some plans to meet with my favorite British friend, Judith for an early dinner at Chipotle in Ft. Lauderdale and for a movie afterwards.
my brand spanking new thrift St. John's Bay blouse.
Thrifted belt, purchased four months ago.
Be Bop capris wore before here.
My very old and so very comfortable Roman sandals;
No wonder they were able to conquered Europe.
I mean, I know that it was not only the sandals but I bet they helped!!!
No real need for an extra photo, I just like how the outfit (in other words, me) looks!
Sun "n" Sand purse purchase long time ago.
This means that it was so long ago that I can't
All the necklaces are from The Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico and are made from
plant seeds. Some of the necklaces date back to the mid 70's when my mom
visited my grandma.
Rings from local Brazilian store. Large wood bracelet from local Indian store and the bangles are from DOTS and thrifted.
My salad bowl from Chipotle.
It had rice, beans, corn, guacamole and spicy chicken.
I love light fixtures and architectural details. This is not a surprise if you have read my blog before.
The wall mural Aztecs Gods or maybe just Aztecs symbols.
The decoration in the other Chipotle (at Sawgrass in Plantation) is completely different as seen in here.
After dinner I drove to the movie theater (Gateway) and parked in the small mall next to it.
We got our tickets and have about 40 minutes to wait so we decided to walked around the mall.
This clothing store had this lovely chandelier, it was close so I took the photo from the outside.
This is a very small thing.
This would be a "nipple-kini" for me and most of the women I know.
I made Judith laughed so much with my "nipple-kini" remark!
We walked into Jezebel because Judith say she and her daughter love this store and she thought that it was my kind of store.
And she was right, the store is full of colorful items and many of my favorite things.
Love the paper mache flowers and the cards are so cool and funny.
Here I'm again with the light fixtures fixiation.
For some odd reason, this one made me think of Space Odity and Bowie.
A bit of medusa in here.
This is by the back of the store where all the clothes are.
A red medusa and some other cool stuff.
I was immediately attracted to this yellow area.
Gorgeous vintage dresses. I need to save some cashola in order to buy some of them.
Another look at the white medusa and a pink boa.
The room divider is between the dresses area and the store windows.
These bags needed their own photos. Can you see my excitement?
My lovely friend Judith by the purses area.
I want all, I want all and I want it now! (Lyrics by Queen, wishes by me).
You see this is my store.
Look at all those colors, they have my name on it.
Fantastic bracelets. The photo is a bit blurry because I was moving to much.
After buying dinner and the movie tickets this was the only item that I love and could afford. My darling Judith got it for me before I got to the register.
Afterwards we went to the movies and got into The Hangover 2 instead of Pirates of the Caribbean 4. It must been meant to be, because we saw the first Hangover together as well and we both loved it.
However, this movie was funny but not as good as the first one, and at times it felt flat. Also how many times are the guys going to be drugged by their friend before they kick his ass for good?
I just came from seeing the wizard, the wonderful wizard of documentaries: Mr. Ken Burns at the Parker Playhouse in Ft. Lauderdale. My nerdy heart is beating so fast...
Off course I'll be posting about it later.
