A Sunday in the South of Philly!

With my sister Dylana!



(Vintage dress, Mango leather jacket/scarf/bag, Vintage boots)




Always wearing these vintage RayBans!



I love when these girls smile! (Kim and Dylana)



On the way to the Italian Festival!!

Bumped into a vintage garage sale! Dylana scored this coat for $20!



It was crazy busy at the Italian market. Loud thumping music and lots and lots of food! LOVED IT!

Spinach pizza at Lorenzos!




It got sooo hot! Had to grab some iced tea :)

I LOVE KIM!

Kangaroo? Turtle? YUM

HAHA. pigs.


(a mix of photos by me and Kim)

Our new Philadelphia friend, the adorable and oh so stylish Kim, took Dylana and I took us down to the south of Philly for a visit to the Italian Festival which happens only once a year. I'm so happy that it happened to be occurring the weekend I was there. It was like a massive street party. There were people EVERYWHERE and the DJ was playing really awesome loud music. I just wanted to get up and dance! There were numerous street vendors selling fresh fruit, any poultry you want (did i tell you about kangaroo?!), and booze (lots of booze). I fell in love with the little mom n pop shops. During our walk there, we even stumbled upon a cute vintage garage sale. Dylana picked up that amazing leopard coat. As for the weather, the sun was out for the first time that weekend and it was humid. It left us craving iced tea and large slices of pizza! Ended our evening thrift shopping in the charming Old City before heading back to Kim's for a night of burgers, beers, and lots of laughter. There really couldn't have been a better way to spend a Sunday in Philadelphia!

Waw, I'm sure that if Dylana would have the same haircut than you, you would look like twin sisters! 2 beautiful girls! One day, I would like to see photos of you both when you were kids, I'm sure you were really cute! ^3^
