Notes of a shopaholic

Saturday, April 12, 2003:

Just doing a little stop by TJMaxx while I'm out thing today, when I came across a really cool DKNY Linen/Nylon blazer, kind of shiny with leather highlights. $80, shoulders would have to be taken in a little... More a Marc Jacobs or Dolce and Gabbana rip off than a Prada rip off, like 99% of their stuff. I was sorely tempted.

Careful what you bid for, you just might win. That's what I always say about Ebay. When I purchased some stuff at the vintage store yesterday, I figured that I wouldn't win the Moschino Cheap and Chic Blazer I had a $50 max bid on. Surprise, surprise, guess who had the winning bid of $41? Things will be balanced out if someone would just pick up this Prada shirt for $35. Its really a nice shirt. A bargain.. What are you fools waiting for??!!

I stopped by a little vintage store I've been hearing good things about today. Quite an impressive selection, albeit awfully cluttered. Sort of looked like walking into a Marc Jacobs showroom--I mean when you see a lot of vintage clothes, you realize just how much his look owes to them. Since I can't afford to pay $199 for striped pants by Dolce & Gabbana on Bluefly, I snagged a pair for $10 at this store. Also picked up a plaid blazer thats more ultra-prep than used car salesman for $12. A little boxy, but I could taper it. someday.

Whose clearance rack did Bluefly clean out? Really cool stuff from Dolce, like these awesome striped pants , Marc Jacobs, Neil Barrett...

Trina Turk is the kind of small, casual designer we need more of. She now has a men's line including lots of colorful print blazers (not the sort of thing American companies often offer to men) and shorts that might actually look good, but its available exclusively at her Palm Springs boutique :(. Check it out here.

I've been doing some spring cleaning clearing out of my closet this weekend. It can be an anxiety producing experience filled with regret--what did I ever see in that shirt? How many times did I even where those pants? I have A LOT of stuff from Banana Republic--have they really changed for the worse, or have I?
