What to do when your boyfriend of 4+ years walks out on you?

1) Buy yourself flowers and fashion magazines.

2) While reading the fashion magazine (in this case, Vogue Italia), come across a photo bonanza of old film stars, and wonder out loud how you ever settled for someone that didn't look like Paul Newman.

5) Read Huojuva talo. Imagine that he is Eero.

4) Go shopping. Find great stuff at the flea market, stuff that he wouldn't appreciate. Flower bag, 1 euro, white dress, 8 euros, Margaret Howell scarf, 1 euro, black&green bag, 1 euro, vintage gloves, 3 euros.

5) Wear stuff you know he would hate. In this case, loose, billowy, draped shapes, washed out pastels and browns, plus mens' shoes. Make sure you don't brush your hair, but keep it loose anyway to maximise the sloppy, shapeless look.

6) Do all of the above, knowing that he will despise you even more than he already does because of all the things you have done above.

Oh shit, that sucks. But often when things come to an end that makes room for new good things to happen. I hope it's so for you. Anyway I love the stuff you thrifted!

Aww, it'll get better soon. Though at least i hope you guys can talk it through or at least resolve your arguments to heal from the pain faster.

You need someone who appreciates your unbrushed hair! Vasiliisa is right, this too shall come to pass and make way for new wonderful things.
Love the blog by the way. It's nice that someone takes the effort to write at a greater length than most bloggers. Keep it up. Feel better.

My thoughts exactly. This, too, shall pass. How chastening in the hour of pride. How consoling in the depths of affliction.
