Ok, so I never pay full price for anything clothing and/or accessory related. I always shop at thrift stores or on eBay or urbanoutfitters.com sale. It's just how I've always been, anything less than 60% off fails to rouse my interest.
With that said, I had no choice but to pay full price for this shirt. I tried to avoid it, of course, I checked out eBay and Etsy and just plain googled "denim shirt shoulder cut outs" and after an afternoon of searching high and low for a cheaper version I gave in and bought it off urbanoutfitters.com.
Look at it! Isn't it wonderful? I am going to wear the hell out of this shirt. Period. I have worn it nonstop since I found the little bundle of joy on my doorstep Saturday night.
I also need to learn to sew. I could have saved, oh $55 if I just bought the old man's denim button up at the Goodwill and did this myself. Any one know of any good books on learning to sew? I have a sewing machine and all the tools, and my mom is incredibly talented at sewing... it's genetic right?!
Two things I didn't pay full price for? The fabulous J Brand jeans and Jeffrey Campbell clogs I am wearing. The jeans I got for, I think, like $20 new in stores, because perhaps I'm the only one who loves their cinnamony hue? Maybe? And the clogs... oh the clogs! I found those at ROSS, yes, Ross. The stinking Dress for Less. How random to find JC's at a Ross, but I didn't ask questions.

I also dyed muh hair. Look at, it's dark now!
Look at that face... apparently even I can't believe it!
So, the fabulous Claire at Spinning Threads tagged me in a post about my 10 favorite things, and I'm super excited to do that because, I mean really, how often do we sit down and appreciate the little things in life? It's been shown that to take a few minutes every morning and write down three things you are thankful for or that you appreciate having in your life can actually improve one's quality of life, and sometimes the effect is pretty freaking substantial. It's a great premise, and I fully intend on giving those ten little things I love their deserved recognition.
Just not today! I am sooooo late and sooooo inundated with homework and quizzes and projects and shit to do in the lab, that I hafta be pretty brief!
I know this is an obvious and kind of stupid thing to say, but one weird thing about this shirt is how cold my damn shoulders get. You NEVER think about your shoulders and their subsequent temperature save for when they are oddly enough the only portion of your torso exposed. I really should have seen that coming.
Oh no! It's stupid Monday! Have wonderful and productive and happy Mondays anyone who might read this :)
