Hi my friends! I haven’t been around, I know. But just so you know, I talk to you every day in my head. We share meandering stories, randomedies, and nutty anecdotes. Oh yes we do. There was the alopecia thing and the coupon debacle and the Starbucks affair (still) and so many other tales. As it happens, we laugh heartily together. But it’s a little bittersweet because I miss you so. All these stories. Nary the time.
Today, I knew I had it bad when I produced, directed and starred in an entire fake “veelog” telling you what I bought at the thrift store today. I went on for at least 17-and-a-half minutes. Talking to you. Only to you. Always to you.
What I guess I’m trying to say is that I’ve been neglectful and busy. Taking a walk on the sucky side. I’ve written you posts — like how I’m losing my mind, forgot to take my medication for three days (I don’t think I need it anymore.) (Psych!), and got my hair cut after I insisted to my hair stylist she make it “more blonde,” and give me “Gidget bangs,” but haven’t published them. You know, just because.
WHERE’S MY MEDICATION???????
So to sum up.
Here’s what I bought at the thrift store today.
(I sauced up the boring pics a bit with some vamptardy expressions. Because you deserve no less.)
OK look. First of all, I know, Unfocused. Second of all, I’m not gonna wear these two things together in real life because Vons bagger girl(not that there’s anything wrong with that).
Maybe you want to see the cool button detail on the skirt? In the meantime, ignore the belly button. And the belly.
Can’t quite see the buttons?
Here you go.
I left the thrift store tag on for authenticity.
Still not seeing the buttons?
Gosh you people!
Here’s a sweater.
From the side it looks like a butterfly.
Here’s a purse.
Also and in addition, you know how there’s all this talk of shrunken black blazers being the thing de la bling thing this season?
I didn’t either.
But I figured I should get one. And because I do stuff kinda haphazardly and half-assedly, I bought this boys blazer, size 12, and hoped it would pass for something cool.
But since it’s Van Heusen and 8 sizes too small and something a second-grader might wear to his first communion, I am probably wrong about that.
I kinda pictured the blazer more with a flowy dress deal and cowboy boots. And chandelier earrings.
Yes Virginia, my style can sometimes be like that of my personality.
(A weird puzzle.)
(I made that last part up.)
Someone stop me.
To conclude, I bought the black button skirt, white blouse, purple butterfly sweater, black purse, and boy’s blazer for $14.98. At the Poway Salvation Army.
Not so shabby, right?
(Or is it?)
(Do I look like a hobo?)
Please know that I will be back with better content soon. And I’ll start with my inferiority complex and why I think the neighbors don’t like me.
Fun, fun, fun!
P.S. My friend Stacey at San Diego Bargain Mama is putting on an under-$50 outfit challenge you might want to check out. By the way, Stacey’s website lists great deals throughout San Diego County on everything from window treatments to bear rugs. (I possibly made up that last part.)
