Playing with Petticoats

The topic of meeting and hanging out with the friends of friends was previously discussed during my last post, but I will continue it here. You see, I hung out with my friend, Sarah, and her friends from Skidmore yesterday, when they came in from Marin to the city. Now I've already met all of her friends this past October when I visited Sarah. Having almost Sarah's entire school group here visiting her made me pretty jealous. I kind of wish I had made/maintained more friends like that in college, but I am only a sophomore so I still have time!
While they were here, we did a little wandering around the mission, more specifically Valencia. Paxton and Gates, 426 Valencia (the Pirate shop), Curiousity Shoppe, Good Vibrations (sex shop, eek!) you know, the basics. Wait, actually, the sex shop should have a small pause...ummm, yea I didn't know about all that stuff there. Did you know that people walk around with anal toys in their behind!? Or that there are chairs with built in dildos? Or vegan condoms?! But afterwards, we got some food. We stopped by Bi-Rite grocery store and ice cream store! YUMMMM!!! I bought an apple, blood orange, and then brown sugar caramel swirl ice cream.
On to my outfit, I'm wearing this Petticoat Slip Coat from American Apparel. I've wanted one of these for a while--like I've wanted every skirt from American Apparel--but at about $70 it's a little too expensive for me. But I found this little gem in my friends closet that she bought for a Halloween costume. So I took, I mean, I borrowed it. Now it's a lot of fun, but it's a little extravagant? Is that the word I'm looking for? So I tried to dress it down. I was originally wearing flats, but it still felt a little dressy to be hopping on the bus with. Obviously, I then paired it with my favorite new stripes from Aritzia (my favorite Canadian store). I still sensed a good amount of looks when I was wandering around, especially on the bus, but I'll take it as a compliment. They were obviously admiring my super cute and gutsy outfit, right? Right?
