I know you missed me. I took a much-needed hiatus to rest my fingers from all the furious typing I’ve been doing to satisfy my readers’ demands for my brilliant writings.
Okay, not really. I wasn’t lying when I said that I was lazy. I have plenty of ideas for posts, but I’m still working on them. And right now, all I want to do is look at pretty things. So, taking a cue from my friend nadarine, I’m going to talk about things that I love and want but really shouldn’t buy.
I’ve been obsessed with grey lately and I’ve realized that I have very little of it in my wardrobe. I want to make a concerted effort to phase out most of the black and replace it with grey because I think it looks better against my ghostly white skin. There’s also something a little more modern about it–it can be used just like black but it’s so much softer and less conservative. I have found about a million things in grey that I’d love to have, but below are some of my favorites.
The first are these boots, which I actually might get if I can make up my mind about them. One side of my brain says “Hey, the only boots you have are galoshes. You should spend money on a pair more practical. like those riding boots you’ve been imagining having for months,” but the other side of my brain says, “Grey suede! YAAAAAAAAAY!”
I love 90% of the shit on Modcloth, but this dress is my current obsession. It’s the perfect combination of girly and sexy.
And, speaking of grey and Modcloth, I have been lusting after this coat for quite a while.
I am slowly but surely starting to love clutches (I always thought they were so impractical, but now I’m seeing the beauty in impracticality), and I think this one is the perfect combination of vintage-looking, yet modern. The best is that it’s handmade right here in the good ol’ USA!
Aaaaand, here’s a pair of shoes that the fashion mags would call an “investment,” except that you’re never going to recoup your money, much less make more money off them. Though I think it may still be wiser to invest your $600 into shoes instead of the stock market right now. Better to be broke and look good than just broke. Beauty in impracticality, right? RIGHT?
Join me next week when I talk about navy! Ooooh, such a wardrobe risk-taker!
