Shopping Anyone??? October 25, 2009

I have been walking around for weeks, checking out shops, taking photos, and at one point, I just had to take a break! Mainly because my nikon is so freakin heavy, and walking around with it drives me crazy…especially when I walk a few hours a day. I was only able to take a handful of photos so far to share…but stay tuned!

One place that I loved was a boutique called ‘Bird’ (www.birdtextile.com) This company makes all their textiles using solar power, so it’s very green! The baby carriers are amazing…I was trying them all out at the store, with the matching sling bags…the sling bags are $195!!! Yes, I’m so weird. The ladies there asked if I had a child, hahahaha…I said ‘is it too early to start shopping?’ Bird textiles has not expanded to the U.S. yet, but it’s a pretty posh and pricey place here! I think some of you girls will die if you saw this place!
