something old something new.

they say men will spend twice as much on something they need, while women will buy something they don't need just because it's on sale. so true. as if i needed another pair of black shoes, these bubble paper bag boots were on the sale rack...in my size. sold.

and i'm not much of a thrifter, only because there aren't any shops on my daily path of travel, but i went out of my way for halloween. and while searching for costumes, i took a quick peek down the aisles and a couple of things piqued my interest. one of them was this lace blazer, super cute and in excellent condition. again, nothing i really needed, but it was eight bucks...in my size. sold.
