I bought this top before I left and brought it on over to the east side for some good old refashionin’. Ohhhh how good it felt to do a refashion, I swear it has been a long refashionless month. When I saw this pink polka dot, shoulder padded gem in the sea of possibilities, I was hooked. I just took in the sides and sleeves, shortened, rounded and hemmed the bottom..done! Tutorial here.
I wore this top on over to one of our (or I should just say Danny’s) favorite spots in Shanghai, the candy store that sells a very tiny assortment of American gummy candies. They have mastered gummy candy making, they are divine, I mean, delivered straight down from the heavens. They’re so soft they instantly melt in your mouth. Mmmmmmmm. Anyway, this is not your typical American candy store, but a typical candy store you would see here in Shanghai….with its mixture of American candy, Chinese candy (something I have had once, and will never have again, and Beck agrees), herbs and things for teas, nuts, leaves, other random things that unknown to me, and random skinned chickens hanging in the back. Love it. And of course, on que, a sweet Chinese lady picked up Beck and give him treats. They love to spoil him and I don’t think he minds at ALL.
We told him to make a funny face, so he decided to growl.
Here is what the typical Chinese candy looks like on the right and here is the lady spoiling Beck on the left. To be little, blonde, and cute in Shanghai..
