|In the beginning, plastic shoes every day.|
It's not like i'm going to completely change who i am or what i consider to be my personal style, but knowing that many people who showed up in heels to Tip Top Chicken had said heels stashed under their tiny beds in their wooden houses in the barrio tends to make you question your own sense of self-respect and grooming -- especially when you live in a comparatively palatial household and have "help" do your laundry. I can't say i'm going to be wearing loads of bling or going so far as to sport heels at Tip Top (they're dangerous to wear on cobbled streets), but it's always interesting to see how you start to identify more with the local scene than to the travelers of your own age who come and go...
In case you're in the market for some bling, Melvin has some nice pieces in his online store! Kobi Kamhaji also has some amazing diamond pieces worth checking out... and in case you need a way to finance it all, check out Algorates.com. Peace and bling!
