I never thought I'd say this, but sometimes regular shopping is much more exhausting than thrifting.

The difficult part about retail is that you have to wade through everything - each piece which catches the eye, and could theoretically be a good buy to some degree - and discern what you actually like and what you're actually being tricked into liking.  It's harder to pinpoint what pieces are actually special.  After a few stores you start recognizing the same trends and wonder whether you should've bought it from this place instead of that one, whether it really makes a difference that this brand put an extra ruffle here.  When they don't carry your size, you try to convince yourself that either you can squeeze into the smaller one or make it work with the bigger one.  And of course, there's the eternal struggle of "Do I really like it thi$ much"?

What is most interesting is fashion when it's living. I find it inspiring when people dress well - but in their unique interpretation. Searching for people who enjoy having fun with their style and make their own statements. If you want your picture removed, don't hesitate to contact me!
