Closet Shopping

Looking at these pictures, I can't help but think of my mom back in her hayday. Something about the quality and the attire reminds me of old pictures tucked away in dusty photo albums, and well maybe even mothballs, hahaha. But you'll be happy to know the smell of mothballs was not recreated for this post. I just kind of got inspired to actually look decent for a change, seeing as how I'm usually in my work duds, comfy pjs or some other equally embarrassing ensemble. And of course I had no plans, but having no plans has never stopped me from playing dress-up before! (Sad that I still do this, I know. Please keep the judgements to a minimum!) 

Anyways, I figured it was about time to unleash my big, floppy hat that I got at Urban for pretty much FREE! $2.50, what what! It's kind of been collecting dust and getting trampled on left and right, but I spotted it today and had a "lightbulb going off" moment. Don't you just love going through your closet and running into old things that you've forgotten about? I swear it's like shopping...very rewarding, I must say. I felt just as happy finding the romper among my things, even though I stopped wearing that because once it gets cold, a romper just isn't practical, unless you're okay with goosebumps, or going to rock some leggings as well. So I guess I'm trying to say that I had a fantastic time shopping in my closet today!

Oh yes, it's Christmas time, and of course I haven't gone gift shopping yet. Why would I go holiday shopping early when I could just procrastinate till the absolute last minute, and find myself in the midst of psychotic shoppers, with the possibility of getting trampled on?? No, I will wait until Thursday (payday) or maybe even CHRISTMAS EVE to punish myself-I mean shop for my friends. I mean, how bad could it really be for a girl like me though? Girl like me meaning I will probably only be venturing to various thrift stores, and probably nothing else. Winning.

Apart from my usual procrastinating, I've been soooo busy, just working my little behind off everyday, but I've been calculating, and at the rate I'm going, I should be able to reward myself with a pair of Jeffrey Campbells, so that's all of the motivation that I need! Back to Christmas though, I cannot believe that it's about to be here, and that another year will soon be gone. I haven't really even thought about Christmas that much this year, it seems it gets harder to keep up with the festivities as much as I would like. Wahhh to growing up. But on the plus side, I guess the true meaning of Christmas becomes the main reason to even celebrate then. Family, friends, being alive-those are the important things. 

Well anyways, I'm gonna stop rambling now, but I shall return sooner than you think. Hopefully before Christmas, but one can never know when living such a fast-paced and exciting life like mine! Bahaha, whatever, I'm so kidding. Happy holidays!
