I found this shirt at a garage sale with my sister for $2! I'm pretty sure it had been sitting in that woman's closet for decades, and I'm glad I could finally put it to use. A girl that I don't know very well saw me and exclaimed, "You look just like a goldfish in that shirt!" She was very embarrassed afterwards, but I didn't mind. I mean, who doesn't like fish?

This watch I bought at the airport en route to Paris to meet up with Ali. I had left my cell phone at home since it wouldn't work in France anyway, but realized that I had no way of telling time without it! Luckily, I found a lovely, little store selling very cheap accessories and fell in love with this watch, which has an enormous face. You can't really tell in the picture, but it's nearly the entire width of my wrist. It no longer works (cheap watches are rarely waterproof), but I still like the way it looks with some bangles.
Somewhat related, Breads and Threads will be traveling to Paris again next week! We plan to ogle in as many patisseries, boulangeries, and boutiques as we can find, with maybe a little sightseeing on the side. Next up, a post on how to pack for Europe!
