Ootd on my day off:
Thrifted everything! Not much else to say.
Here’s a thrifter’s quandary: the red dress you see on the wall is on hold until tomorrow night while I mull over whether or not I really need yet another pretty little vintage day dress (spoiler 1: yes, always) (spoiler 2: but per usual I am probably too poor to justify it. Le sigh).
It’s $22 and it’s not thrifted, per se—it’s from Buffalo Exchange (I was trying on clothes while waiting to trade some of my own in), so it’s a bit more expensive than I’d find it thrifted. On the other hand, it’s stunning, and a beautiful tomato-red collared full-skirted embroidered cotton dress is a rare find indeed. An intimidating woman on the T once told me that red is my color, so I’m a bit predisposed to it.
So the question here is: should I spend $22 on a pretty dress, or should I continue on my mission for financial austerity, and use that $22 towards practical things like food and tea and socks and conditioner?
I know the good/correct answer, but sometimes being a cash-strapped fashionista is trying.
