The upside is that I spent less than I normally have for the amount of shit that I got. Trying to find a silver lining here. Let’s get into it.
// a neo-vintage Looney Tunes shirt
why: it was a nostalgia thing. I asked the Instagram gods for this and it came to me and I was powerless to say no.
circumstance: went searching for it on a whim (ok, the last of several whim-led searches) and found it on Etsy for $12. Normally I see shirts this age go for much more, so I called it fate and got it. The 11-year-old me is squee-ing with delight.
// two Theyskens’ Theory tank tops (one seen here)
why: it seemed like a good idea. Shirts are always good. I like shirts.
circumstance: my boo-thang Ellie Di was in town and she wanted to go shopping. Naturally I obliged. I took her to my once most favored neighborhood for thrifting, ended up in Crossroads and was shocked that they were priced so low.
// Alejandro Ingelmo ‘Kennedy’ platform loafers
why: the loafers I bought on sale at Zara fucking suck. I can never trust the shoes there. I wanted new flats and these were chock-full of personality. Saw an all black pair on Oroma and was pressed to find a pair for myself.
circumstance: I searched eBay a bit and found them. Showed Dudeguy and Dudeguy approved – even with the neon yellow that scares me a bit. I got them for a Coke and a smile. Winning all around.
// Jeffrey Campbell ‘Debora’ cutout boots
why: *groan* Ok, I think they’re cute. But I also think this is a case of “they’re cute on her, so this will obviously be cute on me … but in actual life doesn’t really work that well on me because I’m not her.” This happens a lot. Not as much as it used to (DEAR GOD THE MONEY I’VE SPENT), but more often than I’d like.
circumstance: impulsive ass night shopping – what else?
Still nothing, but that last item is the first up on the chopping block.
Clearly my attempts to not night shop have been unsuccessful. Technology has made it all too easy for it to happen and I can’t completely shut myself off from my phone, especially if I’m working late.
I’m taking suggestions if anyone has any. Each one, reach one.
