I only enjoy bargain shopping in highly edited boutiques and consignment shops, but once in awhile, I’ll do something stupid (oh, let’s say—trek to Queens to try my hand at the Housing Works mega dumpster sale) and trick myself before with delusions of great finds (!) and thrifty steals (!!), and leave miserable, sweaty, with an armful of unwearable floral muumuus and ratty concert tees.
This faux-fur vest though, was the one boon of the afternoon. Some little old granny came up to me while I was looking for the exit and petted my coat before muttering “Ew, ew, ew”. Ouch, lady.
Also, it is fashion week! I’ll be posting for the Chictopia girls while I’m in NY doin’ my thang. Catch me on Everybody is Ugly while I’m gone!
