i made myself take pictures before i left the house the other day.
it's been a while since i've taken pictures of myself
and let's be honest...
you feel kind of dumb taking pictures of yourself.
like, what face am i supposed to be making?
am i supposed to look like a model?
(cause we all know that's far from reality)
am i supposed to look care free and happy?
(because it's just me and me camera and if i smile it usually looks fake)
so i jumped in with this winner:
look how thin that sweater is!
that doesn't even deserve to be called a sweater!
(btw:this is my new backyard...cool, i know)
then i finished off my photo sesh with these two more sophisticated shots
shirt: kmart clearance (thanks selena gomez, you're the best), cardi+jeggings:old navy, boots:target
so my new years resolution to my wardrobe is to buy QUALITY not quantity.
it's really hard.
i went through this t-shirt/jeans/cardigan phase and i'm over it
so all i want to do is go to old navy and buy a bunch of blouses
but they always turn to crap after a couple months.
quality purchases take time.
i'm too into instant gratification.
what brands have stood the test of time for you?
here's my want list to add to my wardrobe:
jbrand black skinny jeans(elaine, you convinced me)
quality jeans in general...i haven't spent over $19 on jeans in like 10 years
a silk blouse from jcrew
a cashmere shawl collar pullover from jcrew
(in like 5 colors but lets be honest...i'll be happy if i get one color)
frye boots or something equal to the quality...but not the price, ouch.
that's all i can think of right now.
all right, i'm off to the depot
(that's what "cool" people call home depot...i'm totally in the "in" crowd)
