051. Exploration.

For reasons unbeknownst to me, every once in a while, I Google (well, Yahoo!--I don't actually like Google all that much) Heimstone. I figure one of these days, it's going to go on sale somewhere on the web at a low enough price that I can afford it. Thus far, I haven't been successful. Oh well, I will keep trying.

Anyway, although I didn't find any Heimstone this time around, during my quest, I discovered a number of boutiques that I'd never seen before on the Web. I have an enormous folder of bookmarked boutiques - probably over 200 in total - so I'm always shocked to find new ones. By now you'd think I'd know about them all. What number of people know about them, to the extent that they make a profit? I suppose most also have a material location in a city, too, which is where they make the majority of their sales.

But because Heimstone is a pretty good representative of the type of clothing I like, I got linked to boutiques that carry not only Heimstone, but a wide variety of other clothing that is germane to my own preferences. Here's a sampling of clothing from the boutiques I discovered during my Heimstone search.

The Heimstone dress is GORGEOUS. Wow.

Guess what my parents brought into the city today?

A clue? La Fata means Faerie in Italian. ;)
