I've learned the hard way that it's never a good idea to bar myself from shopping altogether. It's better to treat myself to the occasional piece every now and then or else, wracked with lust after several weeks of self-inflicted deprivation, I'll inevitably go on buying binges and spend way more than is necessary.
Like last week, for example (damn all those Columbus Day sales). Unfortunately, that means that the several items still on my wish list will be even further out of reach for awhile (see above, le sigh).
I was eyeing this white blazer for some time before I finally gave in. I had my reservations: 1) I wasn't sure if it would be worth the price tag, and 2) I can never for the life of me keep my whites clean. I find stains on my white clothes within hours of wearing them no matter how careful I am (does this happen to anyone else or am I just exceptionally sloppy?!).
For now though, while the blazer is still pristine, I'm so glad I decided to bite the bullet – I'm in love with the oversized fit and the interesting texture. I've convinced that boyfriend blazers are like ankle boots – you can never have too many of them.
Fall is here. Or from the perspective of a fashion enthusiast: IT'S ANKLE BOOT SEASON, FOLKS.
The art of the messy bun.
