In a Candy (and Soda) Shop

Top: Collective Concepts
Skirt: thrifted
Shoes: Urban Outfitters
Bag: thrifted

Ever since I read Kathryn of Kitsune-kun’s blog post featuring Candy World in Monterey, I’ve been wanting to check out a new shop called Rocket Fizz that recently opened on Green Street in Pasadena. Jasen and I decided to take a quick trip to Old Town this afternoon to check it out, and we were not disappointed! Rocket Fizz sells all kinds of specialty sodas and candies, including many imported products and salt water taffy in a wide range of flavors. Jasen is obsessed with anything made of ginger, so he was especially impresssed by the ginger ale display. I bought a bag crammed with about 50 pieces of taffy for $3.99.

Oh yeah, I guess I should say something about my outfit. I bought this top from back when I worked for them. I guess I’ve never worn it on my blog before because I’m always feeling compelled to wear more colorful pieces, but I think it works well with this bright pink skirt. The top is edged with tiny silver beads, which, dur, I should have photographed up close because they’re pretty cool.


  1. That candy looks so delicious. MMM. plus, your skirt is awesome. Its actually almost a similar color as the strawberry banana taffy!

  2. What a fun little adventure and so pretty store!

    I adore the two patterns of this outfit together, they create a really strong visual impact at first glance :)
