Reading: China's ghost towns and phantom malls by Robin Banerji & Patrick Jackson
American Flag scarf from the men's section as a sign that I'm proud to be an American, since no one at my school is. Plus, it's so soft and looks pretty rad too.
I always thought TJ Maxx was bluffing, when they said they have designer clothing, but they had Helmut Lang, Marc Jacobs, Love Moschino, Theysken's Theory, Emilio Pucci, and Juicy Couture there. I will definitely come back, especially since they're selling Helmut Lang blazers for $200, when it costs $595 at Barney's New York. This black sweater from Nanette Lepore will quickly become a staple in my wardrobe, since I get tremendous usage out of all my black sweaters. The bow around the neck is a sweet touch and keeps it feminine.
Both of these oxfords I got at a total steal, which is great for me, since I can't get enough of fun oxfords. The pink, Bass ones are really lovely and well made, while the Qupid ones I kind of regret buying. I liked the different colored faux leathers and thought I should finally get in on the Navajo trend without realizing I'm not a very bohemian type of person, when it comes to dressing. Also, they're very uncomfortable. Since I got them for only $16, I don't feel too bad though. If you added the prices of everything I got above, it would still be less than the original price of the Nanette Lepore sweater.Givenchy earrings' mix of glass, pearls, and chains and I want to go back for the matching bracelet, since it's very unique and has an edginess to it that I like. The brooch is just lovely and if I pin it to my black blazer, it will look so Dolce and Gabbana Fall/Winter 2012, no? When I wore it for the first time to school, a girl stopped me to tell me it was "the most beautiful brooch in the world." The tights are just something fun I picked up at a Halloween store for dress up purposes. Plus, they're very playful and will make me look like a Tim Burton extra. What's your style like? Maybe you'll inspire me.
