And with that, I randomly bring back...
Graveyard of Stuff I'd Like to Buy Were My Wallet More Accommodated for the Exorbitant Price:
I grew wide-eyed at this leopard print sweater from Topshop. I never bought anything from Topshop before, and now I'm reminded why. This baby is priced at $90. $90 for a "Knitted camel short chunky animal jacquard jumper," according to their site's description. Calling it a "chunky animal jumper" makes it sound like you've skinned a very overweight leopard to make this sweater. For shame, Topshop, for shame. And what the flying balls is a "jacquard?" Whatever it is, I know I think I want it. Damn.
Zara's yet another place where I've heard about but never had the pleasure of shopping before. I never really gave it much thought until I was talking to someone who said she was a big fan of their clothing, so one late night later, I decided to check it out. I came upon this lovely in the sale section (I almost always make a beeline for the sales first), priced at $50. Hm, not too bad. This is only a mild case of ranting, but I normally wouldn't pay $50 for a blazer, no matter how amazingly rich the velveteen color looks and how awesomely placed the elbow pads are. That's what really got me: the elbow pads. Like porn for a history professor's closet.
Available here, here and probably at a lot of other places, I've been coveting and following this boot more than Stephen Colbert covets and follows me. If you don't get the reference/didn't bother clicking on the link (which I encourage, because Colbert is Co-God), I basically considered this boot to be My Dream Boot. At any source I found, these pair of boots price at nearly $300, which is a hefty, hefty, hefty price. Once it nearly came within my grasp when I was at Urban Outfitters, only to be available in a size 9. It's like I was the opposite Cinderella, if Cinderella was into this kinda stuff.
Anything you want to randomly rant about? Think of the comment section as a virtual couch you can lie on and talk about it. I promise there are cushions. Virtual cushions.
Disclaimer: Mind you, even though I rant about not having this or not having that, I know I don't really need them. Plus, it's fun to make fun of things, mainly myself. And who doesn't want to see that mildly entertaining freak show?
