i am trying to stimulate the economy, ok?

dear philip lim 3.1 metallic floral skirt with pockets and big old sash that makes a floppy bow,

thank you for being cheap as hell at the barney's supersale.


this grey rogan tee was 10 bucks at a sample sale a billion years ago. it is literally falling apart; it's so thin and soft and full of holes that it is not wearable for work purposes but i love it with this fancytimes skirt.


all dressed up with nowhere to go.
FYI, that is the coat pile in my living room on the right there, i haven't seen that chair in months. ooops.


these are one of the most loved items in my closet ever.
70s knee-high brown leather lace-up boots.
just got the soles repaired for the 10 millionth time.
last fall i was wearing them every day and they fell apart like, once a week.
this time i told the dude to do whatever was possible- glue was not cutting it anymore. the rubber soles are now full of nails and i hope that makes a difference; fingz crossed.
i'll never give up on them, never! (and you can't make me!)

okay, out with it - exactly how cheap as hell was that skirt? like, 'good deal' cheap or 'legal theft' cheap? regardless, it's gorgeous on its own, but even more fab with those boots - bravo!
