On our Arizona trip my friend Ria and I were by ourselves a lot of the time while the artists got ready for the opening and concert. We spent a bit of time by the pool but on our first day during a quest to find gelato we stumbled upon the Mexican Import Outpost. Really it’s just called Mexican Imports but we like to rename things. Anyway we were in Scottsdale from Friday at noon to Sunday at 9am and we managed to stop there 4 or 5 times. The owners were really awesome and love to trick people with rattlesnake eggs which was pretty entertaining. All of our souvenirs were bought here and we convinced a few travel companions that they needed to hit it up too! Here are my souvenir scores.
Blanket. I have a really nice wool Mexican blanket but having a pug (such messy, hairy dogs) I can’t actually use it. We got this blanket since it’s washable so we can actually have something colorful on our bed.
Prickly Pear Cactus Candy. This stuff is awesome! The lid is closed b/c Ria and I did a pretty good job on it at the pool and I completely polished it off in celebration when I heard that my hound x Of a Kind top was featured on Refinery29. I really wish I had had time to get more because yummmmm!
Backpack. This thing rules pretty hard and I can already hear my Fjällräven Kånken quaking in it’s cute little Swedish boots. I talked a few other people into getting one of these…yes!!
Dress. This was my first purchase, I bought it and then wore it to the opening about 20 minutes later. Our first thought was to shorten it (it’s midi length) but after wearing it with my Swedish Hasbeen x H&M clogs all night everyone agreed that there was something really nice about the length. We’ll see how much wear it gets long, there could still be a shortening in it’s future.
