A trip to the mall (Galerías Mérida) confirmed two things: The mall was as nice as it looked in pictures, and fashion was similar to the U.S., as expected. Well, mostly as expected.
There are slightly different styles in the mall here, but mostly it’s a combination of interesting patterns and assorted shoes, with some clothes being nicer and some more comfortable or “cool”, just like in the states. With one key exception: slogan apparel.
Slogan apparel here is my favorite fashion thing ever, and if I wasn’t overweight and ANY of these shirts would fit me, I would likely blow my budget on ALL of them.
