So wrong

It makes me upset to have purchased an ill-fitting dress.
Have I not learnt anything after five years of blogging ?
Dress Be Bop - Grey flats Zara - Purple bag Coach 

I like to think that my shopping habits have changed, 
that I buy and wear only what fits well.

Black cardigan H&M

I was so wrong.

September closet edits

September closet edit time.

A lace Have tank top, it was a hand me down and
was not worn much. I sold it at the flea market.


Yet another 7 For All Mankind pair of jeans.
Great wash but it was too low cut.

Purchased in April 2012, my pink Papaya jeans
were really low cut - still, I wore them 12 times,
taking cost per wear to about 0.50 cents a wear.


Fergalicious beige pumps.
I bought these on line a few years back.
They were pretty worn.
Worn at least 30 times on the blog, I got my
money's worth :)


Another one to go was this black patent Xoxo wristlet.
Never, ever worn. I decided to let it go 
because it rusted.


My turquoise enamel butterfly earrings were also
let go. I figure I have enough small earrings.


Another item that I let go of was this 
silver tone mother of pearl necklace.


My white mother of pearl like sunnies.
These were purchased in November 2011 for
the sum of 5.99 USD.
I wore them to death, yeah and they fell apart.


For a change, this month I also went through my formal wear.
Got rid of a pink ABS Evening dress that I wore to three weddings and when I tried it on it looked hideous.


Also in the bag a Eureka dress that I also wore to three weddings and decided that it was timeto get rid of it, it also looked awful.


Finally a gold Bari Jay dress, worn once, it no longer fits me or my current style and lets not forget that this takes a lot of room in the closet.

Total September edits: 11

Purchased in September

I originally went out to find a pair of white sunglasses
to replace the ones that fell apart.
I did not find a replacement but I did find some
great cotton t-shirts.


I thought it was about time I replaced by black t-shirt and a good fitting white t-shirt is never a bad purchase.


I've been wanting to purchase shorts for a while now but they are never the exact, correct length I need - but these white Larry Levine shorts were ! 
They went home with me for 18.99 USD.


Two pairs of sunglasses, one black and blue, the other off white.
One for 5.99 USD, the other 6.99 USD.


Also this month a pearl Chanel like brooch
picked up by a friend in China for 40.00 USD.

My September total was 82.75 USD.

It's been ages

When I started this blog five years ago,
when the post went live, it was what I
was wearing at the time.

Somewhere along the way, I got behind.
Usually about a week.

Cardigan Calvin Klein - Teal sunglasses Kenneth Cole Reaction
Then, finally today I am able to say that I
am caught up on my posts.
Today I am wearing what is pictured.


Now, I just have to catch up with your blogs ;)

Wooded beads

I've had this top forever.

Light blue Request beaded top - Gap Jeans - Innovativi wedges -
Purple bag Coach - Sunglasses Michael Kors
"Forever" meaning at least ten years.


Its been worn about 3 times during
the last five years.


Which means its time to let go.


What's the point of holding on to something 
that I need to wear an uncomfortable bra with ?
What's the point of wearing something I have
to tug on all day…?

Straw necklace

A few years ago in a market in Puebla, Mexico
I came across an interesting item.


GAP jeans - LuckyCom yellow blouse -
Striped and flowers flats Nine West - Purple bag Coach
It was a long strand of thread that had hand woven straw pieces.
While I had no idea what they were, I figured they
would work as a necklace.


Years later I now wonder what they were meant to be.

Regardless the original use, I think things are meant to 
be of use for youwhatever the use may be.
