Find of the Century
Summer has always been a pivotal time of year for me. It's the time when I go into hibernation and review all of the style choices I have made over the past year and decide on how to improve myself without the influence of any lame peer group. So the story begins here: Yesterday I had a mild breakdown when my computer decided to go on strike and I deemed my life miserable and pointless without internet access. I decided to sulk until happiness came in the form of retail therapy and new hair. I randomly decided to curl my hair and discovered that I looked amazing like that, so I've decided to get a perm before school starts again. The unhealthy high of retail therapy turned into a veritable orgasm when I found a vintage Gucci purse on the thrift store rack for $2.99. To quote ELLEgirl, "perseverance paid off in double G's". Never mind the mothball smell and lack of lining, it's a freakin' Gucci! Now that I actually own a designer bag, I bet memberships to pedigree clubs will just come crawling out of he woodworks! But the day gets even slightly better! I found a really cute pair of shorts at the thrift store - and I haven't worn shorts in about 5 years, excluding gym class. I also went to my town's new Old Navy store and found a great pair of green madras wedge heels for $9.99, and for the record, Old Navy usually sucks. So you know what? Even without internet access (I'm on my aunt's computer right now), life is really looking up!
