I didn’t post a shopping confessional last week. Other than a box of orange fabric dye and some groceries, I didn’t buy anything at all. It was unprecedented.
It couldn’t last though.
I actually had no intention of shopping on Monday night. I was getting ready to go down to the beach to do some roller blading (that’s so 1997, I know) when Jeremy called. His car battery died at the mall and he needed my help. The mall where he was stranded just happened have a Style Sense. It was there, I was there…
At one point I was holding three pairs of shoes but I talked myself into choosing only one. See how disciplined I am! I ended up with these. They’re Hush Puppies Couture Collection.
I also bought some non-apparel related items:
A rack for my thread.
For years, I’ve been keeping my thread in baskets and jars strewn around my sewing room. It wasn’t working for me at all.
A tomato cage. It’s pink!
Of course, this little plant has a lot of growing to do.
I also bought a few things at the thrift store this week:
They’re are a little funky and ridiculously comfortable. The brand is Fly London.
I also picked up a few classic Shel Silverstein books.
Books have been a life long passion of mine, and I can’t seem to resist buying my childhood favourites when I see them in good condition. Especially when they only cost a buck.
