I was doing really, really, really well this month…then I went buck on Black Friday (Thursday, really) with a haul from Nasty Gal. You win some, you lose some. Let’s get into it.
// Crenshaw T-Shirt
why: some things you just have to have. This was one of those things.
circumstance: saw its “Slauson” equivalent on my cousin and I had to know where it was from. I went down to the shop, saw they had these (more relevant for moi), and gave Nipsey Hussle’s operation my money.
why: same as above
circumstance: actually…same as above; instead this time it was my friend in the head and I had to email Philadelphia Print Works and beg them to sell me one.
// the Nasty Gal haul
circumstance: once I realized that the initial two dresses I bought were on sale for 40% off, I bought them again to get some money back and then made up the difference in what I could have saved by buying more shit. Logic.
why: for variety. Since I’m on this protective style kick, the only two things I do with my hair are put it in a bun or leave it down. I also figured it was cheaper to just buy one than to spend the time and effort making one myself. Lazy or efficient? Eh. Judge me.
/// Tom Boy shirt
why: I mean…it’s awesome.
why: it was one of those inexplicable desires to have something I know good and damn well I won’t probably wear. I’m glad they have a 30 day return policy because I’m not sure if this was a passing fancy or if these jawns have a real place in my closet.
Steve Madden Practikal pumps these weren’t the most comfortable shoes and I’m kinda over platforms
Sam Edelman Zoe boots same as above
Ash Fuji wedges although comfortable as hell, they were a bit too big and…I’m kinda over platforms.
Cheap Monday wayfarers they were very ehhhhh.
I have learned nothing. I need to journal. Maybe if I write more things down, I won’t channel my energy into buying stuff. Maybe.
