PURPLE HAZE


I’ve been buying a lot of lingerie jackets lately. Probably not the most practical–but meh! I bought this purple one from Salvation Army and am really enamored with all the silk, velvet, and shiny beads. There’s a certain whimsical quality to it, which makes me want to sashay and twirl around my room with abandon! Most of the pictures we ended up taking were me running around or flipping the back of the jacket as if it were a cape. Luckily for you, I’ll spare the masses from my embarrassing attempts at moving gracefully—this despite several years of ballet training! Heh.

So I want to thank everyone for leaving their comments regarding my last post, in which I ranted for a paragraph about my love/hate for fashion. I think it shows the real frustration that many people feel when it comes to this topic—I suspect more girls/boys would try new things if they weren’t so intimidated by trends/styles/what not to wear. I also want to clarify that I do like buying expensive things–it’s like a sick pleasure that I indulge every once and again. I believe that you pay for quality, so yes I have pricey hand bags and some accessories. That being said, I know where to draw the line and don’t own $1000 dollar cashmere sweaters or $2000 dollar dress pants 😛 For me, I often find the most beautiful clothes in thrift stores.

    I see you’ve been asking about ordering from ASOS – I’m in Canada and I ordered from them once. Big mistake. The duties and brokerage fees cost as much as the order, and the item arrived damaged. I contacted customer service about it and never heard back. I’ve heard the duty is the worst for shoes and heavy things, I would AVOID.

    uuummmmm so if you ever decide to part with that beautiful purple jacket thingy, i would like to buy it! seriously.

    I just discovered your blog a few days ago, its refreshing to see someone with an original/unique style in the age of pretty much homogonous style (well at least in small town southern Ontario).
