I love thrifting. I really honestly do. 
I love the process of combing through racks and racks of musty clothes. I love being surprised by finding something amazing. I love the fact that you can find things you can't find in normal stores. And that you'll never be in the position of wearing the same thing as somebody else (commonly known as, I bought this shirt at Forever 21 the other day...)
 And more than all of that, I love getting hauls of clothing without making my wallet sob sad little wallet tears. 

However.. there are just some things I cannot thrift. No matter how many starved wallet tears are cried, I just can't. 
Things such as lingerie, hosiery, swimwear, coats and, in this specific case, shoes... I just can't.
Getting these things secondhand don't register in my comfort zone. 
These are usually the things I have to turn to actual malls and stores for (and the things that make my wallet silently whisper curse words to me at night). 

Anyways, I promise all this rambling is leading somewhere. 
So I was sitting in class today, totally completely engrossed in completing my essay, when I suddenly landed upon Zara's online store... How did that happen?! 
Needless to say, I ended up using the rest of my period going through shoes... 
(I'm weak.. very very weak.) 

So here is a post basically explaining why although I don't really NEED a summer job... I NEED a summer job. 
Shoes that I'm fairly infatuated with. My favourite are the glass heels I posted at the top. They're gorgeoouusss. Ensue drooling.

I also saw this jacket at Zara the other day. OH RIGHT, that's why I was on the website. I fell in love with it immediately. It's the leather sleeves, definitely the leather sleeves. 
But winter's done and it'll be summer soon so I don't see a point in getting a coat.... Sob.

This jacket was pretty cute too. But definitely no need for it now. 

I've also been thinking about clothes I want to make for the summer (several skirts, tank tops, bustier crop tops, etc) but I already have a million things I still need to finish tailoring. 
I think more than shoes right now, I really want a sewing machine. It's such a hassle going to school for all of my sewing needs. It's inconvenient and time consuming. 

So I'm pretty sure the moral of this story (post) is that I really need to start summer job hunting RIGHT now.

White Sleeveless Blouse - Thrifted  / Flower Print Skirt - Thrifted / Black Bag - Thrifted / Black Lace-up Boots - Spring 

So I haven't blogged in the longest time ever (also known as 'a month'). 
I honestly have such a legitimate excuse (not really). 
To be honest, I actually have nothing to say for myself except that I've been drowning in school work (in my case, this is commonly referred to as 'being a graphic design slave for your school') and between that and keeping up with friends (also known as 'being in a relationship kills all of your time') and trying to get adequate amounts of sleep (hahaha... what's sleep?), all my time has just quietly slid down the drain. 
I actually still have folders stacked with images for several of posts I was supposed to do.. but sometimes it's like.. should I post or should I SLEEP?
... and honestly.. sleep is such a beautiful thing these days.. 
Sowwy neglected blog, so many apologies.  
I finally got out of my anti-blogging funk this week when my friend Joyce came over so we could do a shoot together. We both blog, both lack photographer boyfriends (so sads, but other than that, our boyfriends kinda rock so I guess it's okay), and both hate doing shoots with our tripods (it actually sucks). 
We decided to do two outfits (we can't shoot together that often, so why not kill more birds with one stone?) with a theme attached. I decided I wanted to show off two floral print skirts I thrifted a few weeks ago in celebration of spring (yay warm weather yay!). 

(sh, I'm cheesy and I know it) 

White Sleeveless Blouse - Thrifted  / Flower Print Skirt - Thrifted /  Brown Oxfords- Locale

Sorry to anyone who was following me before.. and thanks for sticking with me. <3 
Alsoo sorry for the blogs I usually keep up with. I'll be keeping up with them again soon. Also apologies to people who've tagged me in previous posts to do things.. I just can't at the moment. :( 
I love you all. 

On a last note, here's a cute picture of me and Joyce changing between outfits. Check her out at The Doll In Rouge.

Final last note. My latest music obsession.
"am I an honest man and true? have I been good to you at all? Oh, I'm so tired of playing these games..." 

Beautiful lyrics...
Goodnight and have a good week everybody.
