For example, I have been eyeing tops like this one in stores here:
Above: Beach Tunic in White by Vegas & Mia
I love these tops/beach cover-up tunics and they are all so expensive when I see one that I love, and that is comfortable against the skin. The one in the photo is $80.
And it kills me to know that in Old Town (or along the beaches) in San Diego I could get something like this for under $80 and probably even prettier with the embroidery plus some beading.
I mean the embroidery on this tunic is pretty:Above: Close-up or embroidery on top.
Just look at it...and the material has to be so soft! But $80 is a bit much for me at the moment. I know I could get something like this for less in San Diego.
*Sigh* I hate my location so much. Tops like this are $149 at the cheapest in stores here.
