The key to procrastination.

This season of Regular Show is down to the last six episodes and I currently have been procrastinating my episode builds via an obsessive amount of on-line shopping. And by “shopping”, I mean “cart filling but not purchasing.” My fashion fairy godmother (and educator), Danielle, has been MIA due to a her “pregnancy brain” leaving me to my own devices. Or shall I say “vices”? I’m actually proud and a bit impressed with my will power. Despite filling to the brim numerous on-line carts, I have not subjugated my wallet to a bunch of (probably) stupid, albeit designer, clothing purchases. Who knows the underlining cause of my distraction, but luckily Danielle has been responding to my various texts containing pictures of clothing she “does not love”. I have been true to my New Years resolution regarding toning down the major fashion purchases, and learning to use what I already have. 🙂 I admit, though, it has NOT been easy.

The following are some things I’ve had a particularly difficult time walking away from:GucciJKT

  1. The Gucci silk bomber varsity jacket. I am seriously obsessed and can’t let it go. OMG why do I love this so much? Is it that it reminds me of The Pink Ladies in Grease 2, and the “bad-assedness” of Michelle’s Pfieffer’s character? grease-2-pink-ladies-JacketOr is it a nostalgic pull from a time I wish I could have visited for a time-travel vacation, the 1950’s, when high school boys would drape their “girl” in a warm and loving varsity bomber? VarsityBomberJacketMy obsession with finding an affordable alternative to this 3500$ jacket lead me to a close second. I’m on the fence about it, but I feel like its cute?

    I feel like this is a close second to the Gucci dream jacket and comes in at a MUCH lower cost of 350$. It also comes in the vibrant green as well. This Maje version is currently sold out but hopefully more are coming soon!
  2. Sexy layered mini skirts. This has been the biggest distraction. I’ve been preoccupied with finding the perfect girly summery skirt that I can dress down for work but “sex up” for date night. Honestly I have found nothing and when I asked Danielle she sent me a long sleeved drop waisted mini dress. Cute, but not at all what I was looking for. I especially want to pair said skirt with my buff colored Stewart Weitzman Highlanders.

    Why is it so hard to find a summery skirt to wear with these? I’ve found no reference photos on Pinterest either. They are mostly paired with jeans. Also, am I crazy thinking I can wear these in the summer? I mean it gets chilly here at night…..

    Here are some ideas I have had, but in the end were either too expensive or, if affordable, looked cheaply made and like nothing special. This hunt may warrant a visit to Elise Walker during her summer sale.

    I thought this white skirt from Forever 21 was feminine and pretty for the boots. Danielle said “no.”
    pinkSkirt
    This pink layered skirt and top seemed nice at first but then as I looked at it more, the love faded….

    IsabelMarant
    I love this skirt top combo. The feminine silhouette with the layered skirt is perfectly juxtaposed with the geometric design. This unique outfit is exactly what I’m looking for and I’m willing to bet would look amazing with over the knee boots. Except the price point at over 1k/piece is a bit beyond my reach.
  3. The Morkie. Ok, I know you don’t just buy a dog online and call it a day. Contrary to some opinions, they are not accessories. However, with my babies living all the way down south with no prospect of returning home, I just keep begging MSM for a tiny little love baby. MorkiePuppy
    I mean at under 20lbs it seems any apartment would take one of these stupidly cute fur babies. Alas, I know he’s right in saying “no” (for now). Despite them not being at home, I still care for my four leggers with monthly visits and bill paying. I need to wait until the time is right. Meanwhile, I can still look right? morkiebannerI mean look at that face! Heart melting isn’t it? His name will either be R2, Navin, Henry, or Cruton.

If ya’ll have any ideas for skirts that would look feminine and pretty with my over the knee boots, please paste a link in the comments below.  With the holiday weekend rapidly approaching, maybe something extra special will be on sale!!

Have a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend!
