Bare Bones

July 26th, 2010 by Selise

Can these tights be my new favourites? Is that fair to all of my other favourites? If everything is my favourite then nothing is my favourite, right? Sorry, I might have watched The Incredibles recently and the “if everyone is super then no one is super” spiel may be on the front of my mind.

I do love these tights though. The Man found them in Melbourne and I couldn’t buy them fast enough. They go perfectly with this badge that I got at the Tim Burton Exhibition down there too. Come to think of it, I found a wicked skull necklace in Melbourne. Turns out it was quite a fruitful venture for my quirks.

I don’t wear these shoes nearly as often as I should. They’re so cool! And they weren’t cheap, so if I’m working on the value per wear equation that a lot of bloggers adhere to, I am drastically behind.

The No Shopping Report
Friday was tough. I finished work early and just really, really felt like going shopping. The weather was just right. We had a big weekend planned. I wanted to shop. Even forking money over for my foundation (which was outlined as a necessity when I undertook the ban and therefore doesn’t count) didn’t scratch the itch. I am determined not to cave though so when Boozeman asked me to come along as shopping support I jumped at the chance. Surely vicarious shopping would satiate the urge. And it did. Hooray! It was the first time I had “browsed” since the ban started and I found about 6 things that I liked and would have bought without hesitating in the past, but I didn’t. And so the ban continues unabated.

Don’t forget to check the clip out! I’m so very proud and can’t wait to hear what you guys think. I’ll post a re-cap of the  launch in the coming days. It was a total blast.

    I watched the video, but I couldn't see what your connection was to it. A band you like? A band you promote? A band you manage? A relative's band? Must be something like that.

    Those shoes are excellent!
