Wake up

4/26/12




Chicwish jacket, vintage blouse, Zara skirt, Jason Wu x Target satchel, Theyskens' Theory boots

The gloom set the mood for some computer cleansing, which caused me to look back at the mass of pictures I have sitting on my hard drive. These were from a while back--I guess I had forgotten about them--right before I dyed my virgin hair. Kind of hard to believe that it was so black back then.

But let's fast forward to the present... recently I purchased these Acne boots (see my Instagram @neonblush), which makes me a happy camper, obviously, as I've been pining over these classics for many seasons now. This may sound ironic but I swear it makes sense in my head: I know I own a lot of black boots, but I'm trying to move towards buying less and buying better. Not sure how much of 'buying less' I'm doing in what context... yeah, you get what I'm saying, right?

I love the contrast in this outfit. :) The pink mixed with the rough pieces is awesome. Also, I know what you mean. I've been trying to buy less/higher quality but it's tough :P

I love this outfit! The skirt is so cute. I can't believe you hung onto these for so long!
I know what you mean about buying less, but better. I feel sometimes like I do the complete opposite, but I would like to start buying more quality items as well :)

Emily Ulrich said...

It's funny, because I've found myself adopting that very tactic in my own shopping. But, as you, I keep convincing myself that if I buy more of the "best quality" now, I won't have to buy it later. Ha ha, to be honest, I'll probably convince myself to keep buying more of best quality others and then wind up having spent way too much ON way too much. It's the way of the fashion addicted game though, no? :D

don't worry, that mantra totally makes sense. I just recently started the same thing; the buying better is much easier than the buying less. But one step at a time right..? :)

as always, loving what you're wearing!

Buying less and buying better is a great approach. I'm trying that now too but it's not working out so well...buying better but still buying the same amount...not good my credit card says -_- those Acne boots are amazing. Love how the shirt is half untucked from the belt in the first pic! Thanks for your super sweet comment on my blog beautiful lady <3
