Can these tights be my new favourites? Is that fair to all of my other favourites? If everything is my favourite then nothing is my favourite, right? Sorry, I might have watched The Incredibles recently and the “if everyone is super then no one is super” spiel may be on the front of my mind.
I do love these tights though. The Man found them in Melbourne and I couldn’t buy them fast enough. They go perfectly with this badge that I got at the Tim Burton Exhibition down there too. Come to think of it, I found a wicked skull necklace in Melbourne. Turns out it was quite a fruitful venture for my quirks.
I don’t wear these shoes nearly as often as I should. They’re so cool! And they weren’t cheap, so if I’m working on the value per wear equation that a lot of bloggers adhere to, I am drastically behind.
The No Shopping Report
Friday was tough. I finished work early and just really, really felt like going shopping. The weather was just right. We had a big weekend planned. I wanted to shop. Even forking money over for my foundation (which was outlined as a necessity when I undertook the ban and therefore doesn’t count) didn’t scratch the itch. I am determined not to cave though so when Boozeman asked me to come along as shopping support I jumped at the chance. Surely vicarious shopping would satiate the urge. And it did. Hooray! It was the first time I had “browsed” since the ban started and I found about 6 things that I liked and would have bought without hesitating in the past, but I didn’t. And so the ban continues unabated.
Don’t forget to check the clip out! I’m so very proud and can’t wait to hear what you guys think. I'll post a re-cap of the launch in the coming days. It was a total blast.
