I was having one of those trips where I couldn't decide what I wanted to wear... so I packed a ton of colorways of the Pinup Girl Clothing Jenny Skirt - my go-to. My semester finally finished so we decided we'd treat ourselves and go on a little vacation to Savannah, GA, one of our favorite places. Of course, it didn't quite work out (it turned our there was a HUGE marathon going on) so we decided to take a trip to Columbia, SC instead, which is only about an hour away. When life gives you lemons... right?!
After June and I drove around for f*cking ever trying to find parking, we realized there was a chili cook-off going on... our luck. Seriously, all of downtown Columbia was chilli-scented. Our first destination was Hip*Wa*Zee, because a trip isn't a trip without some vintage shopping, right? Unfortunately, it was kind of a bust for us since the store carried predominately '70s clothing... but we were excited to see a little stand of Voodoo Vixen dresses and to browse around. There were some adorable vintage nighties that reminded us of Wendy Darling.

We eventually made our way to Papa Jazz Record Shoppe where we looked for new records for ourselves and for Collin's huge collection. After record shoppin' we went to Sid and Nancy and then we decided to venture to The Gourmet Shop to find some treats: we grabbed some chocolates made in-store + some macarons. While snacking on the macarons we witnessed a 'drunk run', which basically meant a lot of drunk dudes in red dresses telling us how much they liked our "look"....it was interesting to say the least.

We ended the night by running into Sephora and grabbing some new toys, one of which is the best f*cking invention that ever existed. It helps get every ounce of lip gloss (or in our case liquid lipstick) trapped in an almost empty tube, it's called the Swoon Lip Gloss Pick Up Artist. We ended the night by drinking dirty chai lattes and singing pop punk songs at the top of our lungs. Basically, it was the perfect BFF bonding time and we can't wait until our next adventure!
