    Time to revisit the hipster haven…

    Tuesday, August 21st, 2007

    …also known as American Apparel.  Am simply jumping for joy at the prospect of interacting with those disillusioned, blase-to-the-nth-degree store workers.  But alas, it must be done, because I’ve been eyeing these 3 things off the site for too many weeks and really want to try them on in person.

    Clothe the walls

    Saturday, June 30th, 2007

    I had a safehaven when I was in the UK a few years ago.  No, it wasn’t some neighbourhood pub, nor was it even the flagship Topshop store; it wasn’t any place in Oxford Circus for that matter.  My nerve-calming occurred at Asda, the large grocery chain.  I’m sorry, but nothing makes the homesickness go […]
