Retail therapy

Plagued by a week of food poisoning and excessive medical facility visits, I gave in to a little retail therapy. A pair of shoes, jewelry making supplies and a trip to Junkee later, I might be feeling a wee bit better.

I always hate trying to buy necklaces that work well with my chest, so I decided to start making my own. My mom and I were talking not too long ago about how it used to be much more commen for women used to wear watches on necklaces as opposed to on their wrists. My friend Krystal ( sported a necklace watch for a while, but I wasn't willing to shell out the money to UO for my own.

Jewelry making appears to be addicting.

Back in the day I worked for Old Navy for two years. I swore that I wouldn't buy lots of clothes from that store any more after I realized how much money I threw away on stuff that never seems to fit well after one wash. Yet when I saw a grey vest at a local thrift store for only $6 and that actually fit pretty well, I made an exception.

I also picked up these shoes at a discount shoe store. Why is it that when you try shoes on at a store they don't hurt, but the second you wear them for a few minutes elsewhere they do?


  1. Do I spy a perfect little date outfit? :) Seriously, I know I said it before, but I'll say it again, awesome idea with the necklace. We'll have to spend an afternoon getting crafty this summer!

  2. Hey, hey, hey, nominated you for an award on my blog, just fyi :)
