I admit, I am probably too old to be shopping at Hot Topic, but I just love their gothic rags, and wicked accesories. If you don't have a Hot Topic at your local mall, you are missing out. I paid a visit to the punk rock store this weekend and found the most hip iPod cases. They are very affordable (most of them under $14.99). I almost got a studded silver one, but realized I already have too many cases already, so I decided to pass for now. I did indulge in some Betty Paige Stickers for my laptop which needed a makeover. They also had some pretty cool messenger bags you can use to carry all your "gadgets" or your laptop. Going back to school is always a drag, so if you need a little motivation, check out Hot Topic.
