Trip to the Market

September 19, 2009

We were hoping to leave here about two hours earlier than we did.  That is what happens when you have a narcissistic baby, I cannot get that kid out of the mirror.  Desipite getting there late we had a great time at the South End Open Market/Studios today.

I have got to say I was pretty surprised with myself.  I bought nothing, trust me there was plenty to buy.  The handmade baby cloths and toys, headbands, beaded jewelry, hand sculpted silver, pop art, graphic tees, a MINT vintage Gucci, I could have walked out of there with something from every booth.  Since I gave myself a budget I knew I could only choose one thing and I just couldn’t.  We also wanted to go check out some of the studios as well, so I figured we would stop back for one more walk threw before we headed back home, we ended up getting lunch and walking past our old Brownstone, that we paid $300 a month to live in..ahh community development…

The weather was cool, so I layered up.  I wanted to be super comfortable because I would be treking around the city.  I needed to bust out my Lauren Merkin Bag, which is pretty small when you consider all the baby stuff I have to carry these days.  I managed, the bottle and a diaper fit–good enough for me!

When we were on our honeymoon the Italian women lived in little ankle boots like these.  I bought this pair at Jasmin Sola (R.I.P. my dear friend) the day after I got back.  They look better the more beat up they get, I love that in anything leather.

Oh in case you were wondering what we did for lunch, we hit up our favorite old haunt that we used to eat dinner at 5+ nights a week when we lived in the South End: Morse Fish Company on Washington. BEST fish sandwich you will ever have and $0.75 fish cakes?  How can that be a bad idea.  You eat in the rough and the staff, which has been the same since we moved in over 5 years ago, is to fun and pleasant.

Yeah the Diet Coke will balance it out...
