To be honest? I had never been to Puro Diseño (Pure Design). I'm not sure if it was due to lack of interest or opportunity, or maybe even awarness or knowledge, but it took me by surprise. I had no idea what it stood for (besides design, obviously, but the word can have such a general meaning), what happened there or what was exposed. I had my camara by chance - I also got to La Rural by chance. I was freed from school a little earlier so I went to Club de La Tela (The Fabrics Club - Jorge Luis Borges and Santa Fé) to buy fabrics for there was a huge sale going on (I truly recommend it to those who are interested, they have precious fabrics though somewhat expensive, but worth it when you buy in bulk +5m). I was only for an hour there as it is a small place until I decided to go to Puro Diseño. I found cute things, ugly things, original things and some not so original but I enjoyed it, especially a little place called Anima Cakes with impresive cupcakes (there is a picture on click more), another called Pilgrim (I'm guessing the name comes from the film) with a few things very similar to a shop in Av. Cabildo (I'm terrible at remembering names), great magnets with the The Rolling Stones , David Bowie, Pulp Fiction images on them .... And what did this little kid do? I bought them! And last but not least, La Mercería, where they sold a faux fur coat... I DIED. I saw it and died, and prayed for my dad to bring me some money ... but it was useless and that's why I'm going back tomorrow. I haven't finished deciding if it is my type of place, but it's super recommended for a post-work or after-school outing to take a little walk and get soaked in pretty things.
