What’s better than one puffin dress? Three puffin dresses!

PuffinsPuffins are everywhere in Iceland. There are whole shops full of tacky puffin souvenirs and tourists flock to watch the live ones (and some venture to eat them as well). Souvenir shops in Iceland are jokingly called “Puffin Shops” because of all the puffin merchandise.

The shop where I found these is well-known for its quirky choices of fabric for the clothing it sells.




Window shopping

This lovely bridal dress in the window of the Red Cross shop on Laugavegur gave the impression of looking wistfully at the pedestrians outside the window. This could well be an inspiration for a story.

Posting directly from Polyvore

My last Polyvore posting was done with a heavily edited image to which I added text in an image editing program before posting it. That was before I realised there is a text widget on Pv, but since it seems to be made with small amounts of text in mind I will probably still use the original method when I want to add so much text.
I love being able to make these visual lists and I’m getting better at it. Here is a packing list for a long weekend trip to Berlin I’m making around the middle of next month. This is all going in carry-on, in addition to the contents of the bag in the previous Pv post (minus the back-up clothes). Mind you, I’m not shopping for this stuff before I go or even during the trip, but rather I chose products that come close to looking like the stuff I’m taking. The cape is the exception – I actually do own one and love it (except when it is windy outside and it starts acting like a parachute).
