Without Grace

Feeling a little jaded today. The endless struggle of trying to make ends meet is starting to get to me. I honestly cannot remember the last time I took myself on an actual shopping trip! When I went to LA I bought a pair of $5 sunglasses. This, in my book, does not count.

Reinventing things in ones closet is fun - to a point. At this point I am tired of getting creative. I want some new shit dammit! All grace and pretenses out the window. I am tired of saving, I'm tired of bills draining my account, and I'm tired of window shopping and trying things on that I know I can't afford. Give me about a $1000 to go shopping with, and I won't complain for another year. Promise.


  1. Aww honey! Wish I had a bottomless pocket then I could give you more that 1000 quid! There are so many lovely things everywhere it's doing my head in! But what can a girl do but gawk and wait for that day.

  2. Wow, I'm sorry things are so rough for you right now. I can't imagine not shopping in such a long time. Yikes!

    I am crossing my fingers that you win the lottery or a generous stranger puts $1,000 in your lap, sweetie. ;) You think I'm joking, but no one deserves it more than you. xoxo

  6. :( girl, i think we all understand how that feels.

    shopper syndrome! my tip is to compile all of the beautiful overpriced merchandise that you love and adore, and search for cheaper, yet equally as stunning alternatives.

    keep your head up girly!
