all that glitters is not gold

Do you ever crave things? I'm sure you do. My mum craves chocolates almost literally all the time, which she uses as an excuse to steal my chocolates! *tsk tsk, Mum* I've been craving going to Value Village. But I'm a little skeptical about going until after Halloween. This is as normal people besides elderly actually begin to shop at Value Village for Halloween costumes, and I'll feel like a major dork shopping for real! Haha. But, I will see..

Anyways, I almost missed buying this ridiculously ________ (fill in the adjective) blazer. I came out of the dressing rooms of Value Village with my usual mountain of clothes when, out of the corner of my eye, I spotted this _______ (fill in the adjective) blazer. I could not resist trying it on... and the rest is history! (Ha-ha.)

It was also an overall kind of day. You know - despite their unflattering shape - I'm really into these overalls, which I've had for years. They're so childish. I don't think I'll be able to wear them in a few years, but for now, I really don't care if I look like a 5-year-old!

The downside of this outfit? a) the blazer's itchy b) it's hard to pee - I had to take off all my bracelets, my blazer, and then my overalls to use the toilet. (I hope that not too much information!) Ohh *sighhh*, the things we do for fashion!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting! I'm so excited to have reached the 100 follower mark! (I hope someone doesn't stop following, then I'll feel like a major dweeb. Haha) But thanks, everyone! I'll visit all your blogs soon!

Um, also... How old are you?
Okay, so I know you're not supposed to ask this, but I'm curious to know what age my readers are. So, yeah, I'm not a creep or anything...

I love this look ! I just found your blog and I love it :)
Your blazer is amazing and only 7 dollars - what a deal !



Anna said...

BAAAAAH THE BLAZER IS ABSOLUTELY EPIC! Like literally amazing. Fiting adjectives? just look up FANTASTIC in a thesaurus and go from there. Also combine words.

And peeing problems? please, the other day I wore these tights that were a little too small- so you know how when they're too small they aren't properly fitted? I was afraid to go to the bathroom for fear that I couldn't get my tights back on... lmao. SHH!

And I'm 15, will be 16 soon (:


Britty said...
