Started out with a trip to Mood Fabrics, because it was number one on our list. Spent an hour trying to decide if it was possible to narrow down what I wanted to one or two pieces. It wasn't, so I didn't buy anything at all. I know - I was surprised at myself. The prices are quite dear, so I needed to know exactly how much my finished project would take. I wish I had that brown sequin fabric to make a tank top, but at $60 per yard if it takes more than 1/4 yard, I'll pass.
This Brown Sequin Fringe is so beautiful!
Two of my beautiful nieces playing around with by the pound fabric at the Michael Levine Attic Outlet. That piece was about $1.50.
And here's the main Michael Levine store, which was one of the three places on our list as not to be missed. Surprise, we never got there. Although we spent a lot of time checking out this fab fake fur on the sidewalk across the street from there.
And finally at the third place on our list, the FIDM Store. Look at these beautiful Gold (filled, I am sure) earrings for only $8. Did I buy them? If I say yes, then my daughter will be expecting them to be in her Christmas stocking. They do have the Fleur de Lis which as the national symbol of France would be appropriate wear for someone teaching Freshman French at Cal. It is also the symbol for the Boy Scouts, and both her brothers are Eagle Scouts. So I'm not saying I bought them, but if you happen to pop into the FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising), I'm pretty sure they won't have any.
