I'm gonna need more hangers.

regrettable purchases of 2011

that outburst was to my would-be husband. currently i imagine him to have a rather charming and archaic name and to be very not asian.

anyway, it’s funny how when i want to get rid of things on my hanger/wall of shame that i often think “aw no…didn’t i once love you for a reason? can’t we make this work afterall?”

the answer should always be a resounding no, though its never an easy one.

1) as in love as i am with the faux fur collar, i just never came around to the olive color and it never fails to turn me off.

2) impulse buy, it looked great at the time but i hardly ever know what to pair it with. it’s a little too costume-y and all i do is stare at it. i’ve worn it twice in the past 3 months.

3) impulse buy, out of necessity. the stripes don’t line up. i am so annoyed at myself for not catching it.

4) adore that neckline, but the bow is too wilty and i think it’s too childish now.

5) augh i’m such a heart whore, i buy them fast and easy, and then i’m stuck with cheap ass quality that i can no longer stand. it puckers, it’s not long enough to tuck in, it wrinkles disgustingly around the embroidery. it’s infuriating.

and do you know what these all have in common? they were all cheap or on sale. HMMMMM. the sooner i get rid of these, the better. i can’t believe i won’t be able to ebay for another 6 months. lord help me.

sigh. the war is far from over.

celine resort 2012, jil sander ss2011

i don’t mean to stick my nose in the air and go all “so when i was in europe, i was all inspired-like” but i can’t help it, it legitimately did. i think travel anywhere does that for people.

pre-EU, i was super into looking pristine and bleached out, very jil sander/calvin klein, but after seeing that EVERYONE does the tailored minimalist look, i got kind of sick of it while i was there. i have this tendency to repulsively reject over saturated trends, even ones that i’m really into. i’ve bounced back since then of course, but i did get really into florals and leather jackets. not that i wasn’t before, but even more so now: they are solid favorites. the thing with florals is that i like them in a more graphic or abstract sense, no liberty prints or that hippie girl stuff. i need the pattern to be aggressive and bold, playing on outlines, cut-and-paste. i’m surprised the floral bit about jil sanders ss2011 didn’t take hold. whew!

the only thing is, i’m pretty sure these celine photos will be all over in the next few months, because it’s well, celine, or rather the PPP (the phoebe philo problem). so i might have to involuntarily black list them until everyone gets back on the color blocking boat.
