Show off!

Basically, the sole purpose of this post is to gloat over the great things I found this weekend. Not that I have any business going shopping, especially this late in the month...

Unfortunately, whenever I get stressed, or sad, or worried, or all of the above (check, check and check), all I want to do is go thrift shopping! Everything about it calms me, even the smell of mothballs and stale cigarette smoke.

And even more unfortunately, since I moved to New York, "thrift shopping" has turned into "oh I'll just pop into Beacon's and see what's new..." Beacon's Closet is NOT a thrift store. Neither is Buffalo Exchange. Or Atlantis Attic. These are some facts over which I am firmly in denial.

Ah but to hell with it, look what I found! The most beautiful sheer pink blouse, and a little brownish skirt (hey, I NEEDED skirts), and an old pair of Hush Puppies heels. And there's more (just a LITTLE more I swear), that will be popping up in the future no doubt.

Anyways, in penance, I've been updating my etsy with some pretty choice goods. There was another lighter pink blouse like this one that I almost snapped up for the shop, though at the moment I'm trying not to consciously "spend money to make money," but perhaps I'll go back in a day or two and see if it's still there? I'm sure some lovely girl could find a place for it in her closet.

oh my, buffalo exchange was where it was AT last summer. my roommate worked there and i gotta hand it to her- the stuff i would pick out from the store never fit/looked good, and the stuff she picked always worked out. best personal shopper ever. too bad i can't stand her boyfriend.

and yes i rushed myelf to the nearest village discount over many an anxiety attack this past year. when there is no place else i have control, being able to judge clothing just by the feel of the fabric is quite calming indeed. oh man and finding the perfect shoes for three dollars doesn't hurt my mood none.

Hehe, a little stress shopping never hurt anyone! :) At least it's thrifting, where you're probably guaranteed not to blow more than ten bucks on anything, right? And great finds, I'm so smitten by that top!
