thrifted lace blouse, thrifted necklace, thrifted belt, thrifted skirt, J Shoes
I haven't been thrifting in three weeks and I am aching over here! Patrick & I have three (possibly four) great concerts coming up, which has sucked up all of my extra money! We are seeing Tallest Man on Earth in D.C., Joe Pug in Norfolk, Joanna Newsom in Richmond, and POSSIBLY Andrew Bird in D.C., if our final exam schedules allow it! I am also dying my hair redder in the next few weeks, if I can ever make an appointment! It's pretty sad that my schedule is so all-over-the-place that I can't even get a hair appointment within the next two weeks.
And finally.. these shoes. I have been coveting these shoes since our Seattle trip in August. Want evidence? I spotted them in a little boutique and the price tag kept me away.. For me, anything over $50 is a splurge and these were over 3 times that. But, I waited and waited to see if I would still be as in love with them in time, and when I realized I was, I saved, and one day, J Shoes was offering 25% off anything in the store for their Twitter followers! I jumped on that chance and the shoes came about a week later. They are incredibly soft and the color is so rich and unlike anything else I own. Not to mention, they are incredibly easy to walk in, which is the highest priority for me since I walk all over campus on any given day. My two complaints? As soon as I put the shoes on, I noticed that by the toes the insole is a little bit loose. Nothing compromising wear ability, it's just an annoyance. Also, on the ends of the laces there are tassels and a metal square for decoration. This causes weight on the end of the laces and they come untied really easily. They aren't really long enough to double tie, and that doesn't look great anyways. Any tips on either of these issues would be much appreciated!
