So last Thursday I was really upset I missed my friend, Dukalion, performing at the House of Blues on Sunset Blvd. It was mostly because I had nobody to come with me to see some underground hip hop, so I went to the gym sad, came home to dinner sad, then went to my room and suddenly got happy! During my trip to Japan, my sister and I visited some Tokyo stores because we really like to pick up some unique trinkets and stuff. One of our favorite shopping centers is La Foret in Harajuku. In one of the stores I noticed some jewelry that utilized barbie doll shoes for bracelets and earrings, it was totally awesome AND expensive - earrings were about 6,000 Yen, around US$60 bucks! So my thrifty self took down the designer's name, Sara Gallo, and ordered some of her earrings online when I returned to the states.
I bought a pair of the pin wheel White Barbie Doll Shoe earrings for about $40 not including S&H. Still a little pricey for earrings but I like supporting unique designers like Sara Gallo, Vanessa Gade, and others. I have even bought some recycled water bottle pyramid earrings for $40 bucks as well - they are really cool.
