TEFF x COMPANY: ATLANTA PHOTO DIARY | OCT. 21-23

One major aspect of my life that I have failed to share with my public is that: I am a twin. I'm sure you, the reader, just flew into a complete state of hysteria after reading that line, like, "whoa!". Yes, we are fraternal; born on the same day, same year. She lives in Atlanta, by the way. My aim was to post the photographs the week immediately following this much needed mini-vacay, but it's apparent to you that I failed at that. Then, I readjusted and aimed to post it on our birthday(yesterday); failed at that as well. Ah, well. The goal of the trip was to attend this cultural event, unwind and see some old faces; mission well-accomplished. I was so excited about this trip before and after mainly because I have a tendency to get sick each time a road-trip is underway. But this time though, I was in tip-top shape. Here's my trip in a nutshell: my twin, Buchi (pronounced like Gucci--with a B) and I went downtown and while on the way, I spied a flea market/vintage pop-up shop alongside the road and felt immediately compelled to explore its contents. Mind you, there was some parade in progress, so finding a parking spot seemed impossible, but we did. The pop-up shop is managed by an amazing lady whom finds amazing vintage pieces and alters them to perfection. Unfortunately, I can not remember her name and do not have her business card near.(I'll make a note to share later).
I have this thing where I go places, stores for example, the owner takes a liking to me, drags me all around the store and woos me into trying on certain pieces, then I end up leaving empty-handed. I'm usually consumed with guilt thereon after. Here is this person pulling out every sales stunt in the book to get me to shop and the fact of the matter is: I was merely window-shopping. Ya know? Anyways, after that we stopped at Dunkin' Donuts for an iced caramel latte before heading back to the house to get ready for the event. Long-story-short: one of the workers took a liking to me and offered me the latte for free--if I'd oblige him with a lunch-date the following day. He even threw in a free box of fresh glazed donuts and me, in the midst of all my shyness, responded to his kindness with bashful smiles and giggles. Southern hospitality? I don't know. And while there, this ghetto Asian lady strolls in and proceeded to unleash a caliber of comedy that had me and my twin convinced we were Ice Cube's movie. "Next Friday". I wish I recorded it; a priceless moment, really.
