Notes to Self

1. After ranting about designer goods and spending, wearing one's only pair of designer shoes the next day feels a little odd, especially because I love them so.

2. It is generally a good idea to let one's hair dry before taking outfit pictures.

3. Online shopping can be really dangerous. All I needed to do was to push a button to order two new books on mental asylums - it is too easy! (I blame a wonderful website I found today; this one, which is dedicated to the asylums that were created on the basis of the Kirkbride plan.)

4. Shopping in general can be really dangerous. I bought a bunch of vintage jewelry yesterday even though I really didn't need any.

5. I really can't afford to rant about consumerism while sustaining my mindless shopping habits. Oh the double-standard!

That outfit is wonderful! Love the shoes and earrings mixed with the floral and denim. Hair dryers are highly overrated.

I love the combination of the cuffed jeans with the shoes and socks! Am absolutely going to copy this - hope you don't mind. :)

I am really enjoying your posts on spending as well - it is something I am struggling with at the moment, and I'm finding it hard to articulate my thoughts. Your posts really resonate with me.

Those shoes are, quite frankly, divine. I love them!

This is a whimsical outfit, very becoming on you. I love the contrasts in textures. (I stayed home from the Thursday thrift store today to grade papers. Feeling especially virtuous here...)

It's tough to be a thinking consumer AND a shopaholic, ain't it? ;)

I'm in love with those shoes, too. Dang, they're gorgeous.

P.S. A few posts ago I mentioned an interview with the Fashion Spot I did and I name dropped you in it :-)

oh I know what you mean, the last year I’ve taken to avoiding stores completely so I won’t spend. I have far too much already!
