Today is one of the first day (in a long time) where none of my items were thrifted! With that being said, the only piece that I bought not-on-sale were the shoes (which I still got an employee discount on anyway, so I made out pretty well). I'm going to go ahead and spam you with a few recent Instagram shots, is that okay?
This picture of Tish totally makes me giggle. We were at work discussing our plans to do a video together for the September Birchbox and I pulled out my trusty party hat stash (yes, I have a party hat collection at work). She strapped one on her face and totally became a long-lost Angry Bird, haha! And the right photo, is of course one of my favorite foods — black bean burgers. I swear that I could eat black beans every day and never tire of them. I also whipped up some of my tasty pasta salad. Goodness, I love food.
Today I bought some Lomography RedScale film! I love shooting film but have never tried this specific kind before. It was on sale (I got each pack for $3 and there are three rolls in each pack), so I figured that I had very little to lose! Of course Kitty was too busy being adorable to notice!
I love these Hazy Days sunnies from Urban. I wear 'em everywhere. I'm still searching for some metal-framed round ones though. There are some on Urban's site but I just really hate paying $10 for shipping for one pair of sunnies, ya know! And finally, this very sad photo of me on the right. If you've been following my Twitter, you may have noticed that I have been complaining about some pretty serious wrist pain lately. For the longest time (as in, a couple of years) I thought that maybe I was developing carpal tunnel. I did a little bit of research and now am leaning more towards tendinitis. Either way, I picked up a little wrist support splint brace thing today. It's pretty ugly/bland, but I'm actually thinking about doing a DIY project on how to spruce it up and and make it less, um, "medical" looking! What do you think?
Now, let's talk about these shoes. These are the new Kimchi Blue Suede Mary Jane Platforms that we just got in shipment today. Normally I don't lust after a shoe so much, but I really fell in love with these. I think it's the Mary Jane callback and the super-high heel. Either way, they were more than I would like to spend, but I took the plunge nonetheless (having an employee discount does not help to convince me otherwise!). My only complaint is that the footbed is as hard as stone. I stopped at Target and picked up some insoles. After I put those in, I wore these around for almost five hours and my feet didn't hurt a bit! Amazing, huh?
I also picked up this dress and belt at work today. I had originally wanted this dress in a wonderful white with red flowers pattern that we had. It was super 90s and just screaming girly/grunge. When I went to look for it today, turns out it had been sold. My second choice was a leopard print version and my last choice was this one — and by "last choice" I mean that I didn't even know that this color existed. We no longer had the leopard in my size, so I tried this on instead and fell in love. You've probably noticed that I wear my other double-wrap belt pretty often, so I nabbed this amazing mixed-leather double-wrap belt from the sale rack as well.
The weather is supposed to be rather rainy here this weekend. The past two days have been hot, but still stayed bearable compared to the past few weeks! There was a great cool breeze today that almost made me think of autumn. Are you excited about the [eventual] weather change?
