Things I Bought This Week

Posted by danielle on June 12th, 2011. Filed under: Recent Posts.

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.

    Your new shoes are great! I wish you’d gotten all three pairs though.

    my thread is a mess, but i’m just not dedicated enough to do anything about it.

    Love the pink tomato cage! I’ve never seen them in fun colors before. Ours are plain ol’ metal.

    Yay shoes! Yay thread rack!
    Awww Shel Silverstein! I used to color the illustrations of my old copies with marker when I was a kid!
