An Ocean of Memories

Before i go on about those pictures above, i have to apologise for not posting as regularly as before because i stupidly left my laptop in LA. I really shouldn't have booked a 6am flight to phil, nobody should do that. Lessons learned 1)do not try to multi task while booking airplane tix/shuttle vans. 2)bring a bigger luggage if you're going for holiday so that you'll never need to carry too many things on your hands when you do too much shopping. 3)Ship your clothings by Fedex/UPS/USPS instead of checking in your luggage. 4)never take a yellow cab in LA so book your shuttle on the right day because the yellow cab cost a BOMB. Remember, don't ever take a cab unless you fulfill all the mistakes listed above. It would be sillier to miss your flight.  

Lastly, never ever forget your laptop for boba(bubble tea). Please learn from my lessons, it makes it easier for me to forgive myself.

Enough of unpleasant events.

Back to the photos above, it is the place every vintage lover would love to visit. It has a wide range of vintage clothings, vests, coats, shoes, boots, hats, ties, luggage, bags and etc for men and women. From psychedelic printed dresses to chinese fans printed dresses. Silk to leather. It's amazing. Please, if you ever visit pasadena in LA, drop by 1240 East Colorado Boulevard, Pasadena, CA 91106.

The only not so positive thing about this stop is that it isn't as bright as it looks like in the pictures. You'd probably have second thoughts before entering the stop because it's a big area that's loaded with everything a fashionista needs. The basement is even scarier, i would advice you to visit the shop in pairs or in a group if not then go down when somebody in the shop decides to go down too.

Overall, the American Vintage shop was my favourite vintage shop among the other 6 vintage shops that i've visited in LA or maybe just around pasadena. haha
