it's getting real, y'all....................



finally purchased my dream parka today..... I figure I'll have this thing forever and I go grey and what with my blue eyes, I should be prepared for any snowy/icy/rainy trek that belies my future. :P
(although seriously I'm totally hoping to send home selfies of me in this thing while visiting ICELAND, baby!!!!) originally posted on Norseprojects on the Norsestore site for way more than I'd ever spend.  I'd been telling myself if there was a price break for maybe 50% or definitely more than that, then I would buy the sucker....Today I received an email about final markdowns at Norsestore.com but the original price remained on the parka I wanted. I went to Needsupply.com to see if they had anything marked down, but they never carried this parka. Then I just figured I'd google and see what came up. sure enough other stores in Europe had it marked down, and the one in the Netherlands had it at half off, and once I clicked USA it removed tax, and then by giving them my email I got 10% off and what with free shipping, I decided to just go for it. Alas, there probably some import tax that I'll get a bill for eventually.(this has happened before when I spent over $200 on Norse Projects items all at once). but still worth it. we'll see if the Iceland trip actually ever comes into being or not.  I'm remaining optimistic..... :)

Nice purchase!!!

Do you ever shop Scotch and Soda? They have a few things I want, but don't know I can bring myself to buy:
Probably a little more mainstream brand...
