Better late than never, right?
October was a terribly spendy month for me. I was impulsive, I made ill-thought-out choices, and I managed to get two kick ass pairs of shoes in the process. Did i need any of it? Hell no, but they’re all keepers, so I sort of won. At least that’s what i’m telling myself. Onward!
// Rossmore Le Petite Ring set
why: Suz was having an IG sale to fund her studio. I wanted another ring set.
circumstance: with this sort of thing, the circumstance wouldn’t have mattered. I can’t say no to Suz.
// Alexander Wang ‘Frankie’ creepers
why: as mentioned in the previous post, this new turn toward uniform, streamlined closet living was getting a bit stale. I wanted to throw a wildcard into the mix.
circumstance: one of my besties was consigning these because they didn’t fit her. Over one of our iChat sessions, it was revealed that they were my size and she agreed to get them out of consignment for me. This, in my mind at least, meant that the universe wanted me to have them because if it didn’t, they wouldn’t have been in my size. It was glorious.
// mustard yellow beanie from A. Marie Knits
needed wanted something colorful to help with the boringness that was starting to set in. I love mustard yellow (mostly because it blends nicely with black, white, grey, and blue), so I found one on etsy.
circumstance: I searched over a couple of days to find this one, so I won’t call this an impulse buy. This purchase was made with sound judgement and my head is now warm because of it.
// Acne ‘Rider’ boots
why: remember the blurb I wrote about my favorite boots turning out to be of shit quality for the price? Well, I was lamenting the decision and went searching for the Acne boots from circa 2011 that I always thought were cool but were too expensive for me. I just realized this has happened twice now.
circumstance: it was nighttime and I was on a tear trying to find these things. This is the absolute worst combination of things because it will almost always lead to a purchase if I’m able to find what I’m looking for. In this case, it took about 20 minutes and a plaintive email to the seller in the UK asking if she was willing to ship stateside. Luckily, she was. I regret nothing.
H&M leather shirt – I never really wore it and the cut was a bit too short for me anyway
Stop shopping at night, Alicia. Just stop. STOP.
