This recession thing hasn’t even hit me yet.
I don’t identify with the whole ‘recessionista’ trend. I rather ferociously pinch my pennies, but it has less to do with the global economy and much more to do with this condition I have. The clinical term for it is ‘BEING A COLLEGE STUDENT’. Symptoms include anxiety, mass consumption of Top Ramen, and not having any freakin’ money. Still, though, a girl can dream, and I spend a great deal of my time coveting things. So I figure I would share my List of Coveted Items
This super fabulous pendant is actually being sold by my friend, Brie Durkin, who has just opened
her own Etsy shop. Brie has been getting progressively craftier and craftier since I met her a few years ago, and her products are great quality. Tess got several custom ordered pendants a few days ago, and now getting my own is on top of my ‘If I Had Money’ to-do list. Mainly because it’ll be the first thing I can afford.
Ahh, wedges. I have been wanting wedges for years but because I am a hobbit I’ve always figured that they would make my legs look even shorter and stumpier. In this assumption, though, I’ve overlooked the fact that I have totally sweet ankles, and wedges would only make ’em look better. This pair of summery wedges would be great with a skirt or even one of my many pairs of baggy man-shorts.
You know what? These too. I would also totally wear these.
I’m a sucker for nice, thick straps on a tank top. This tank has such a pretty, delicate pattern, and the ruffles on it make feel like I should have another ovary. It is by far the cutest, girliest thing I’ve ever coveted.
I’ve been in the market for a decent swimsuit for awhile. I love to swim, but Oregon has a bit of a shortage of sunny, tropical beaches. It compensates with an abundance of craggy, icy hellholes where you are more likely to lose a layer of skin to sandburns than sunburns. The last time I went swimming, I bought a five dollar paisley suit in Puke Brown at Ross. This suit is a marked improvement on that one. I particularly love that deep navy color. A note: while swimsuit hunting online I came across a swimsuit advertised as ‘seersucker’. Being rather uninitiated in the world of fashion, I had no idea what seersucker was, but I was pretty sure that I didn’t want it anywhere near my nethers. I have since learned that it is, in fact, fabric.
