In an homage to my potential future logo, and my concurrent addiction to any and all things damask, filigree and fleur di lis, I present my very first post:
Beautiful things such as this often frequent my inbox in the morning from ideeli. And sometimes, like this morning, result in gut-wrenching decisions about buying them. Believe me, I know $99 for a $300 Knit Wit cashmere hoodie is a freaking steal. But that doesn’t mean $100 isn’t five $20 sweaters, a fifth of a potential vacation weekend, and 5 hours of work. You’re probably already seeing where this is going.
Believe that I am all for spending money, within your own personal means, on things of quality that are well-made, beautiful and will last. Your phone, your computer, your purse, those things you see, touch, carry all freaking day long should be the absolute best—that one can afford.
But as much as holding such a beautiful thing that is just so, so me, would be wonderful, and wearing it even wonderful-er, I just couldn’t bring myself to click “Add to cart.” (Ok, that’s a lie. I had it in the cart for the whole 15 minutes, but in the end couldn’t go through with it.) As much as the hoodie’s me, dropping that much cash on something that I probably would never wear because it cost that much, and was cashmere and hand wash only, just isn’t me.
