Weekly Faves for 11/18: Shopping in the Gaslamp Quarter

Last week, while I was learning about brains, I also made some time to go shopping.  I didn’t have too much time to visit Fashion Valley (a lifesaver the last time I was in San Diego and my shoes broke…) but I did some browsing in the Gaslamp Quarter, which was right next to the neuroscience convention.  The Gaslamp Quarter is probably best described as a tourist trap, but I love it because there’s a Ghirardelli there.  Pretty sure I went there three times during the four days I was in SD.  When in Rome…

Anyway.  Back to shopping.  Just a few steps away from the Convention Center, I saw a boutique called Heavenly Couture advertising that none of the items in their store were more than $16.  I decided to stop in since I’m on a pretty strict budget right now.  The quality of the clothes were what you’d expect for $16, and probably comparable to the clothes at Forever 21, but the sizing on the items seemed more petite-friendly.  I ended up buying a striped wrap sweater and an infinity scarf, but neither of the items I bought are available online.  I’m not much of a trendy dresser, but it’s fun having a few on-trend pieces!  The Heavenly Couture store on Amazon has many items available online with free shipping over $35, and the boutique also has its own website.
