Twentyone. Again.

May 10, 2008 § Leave a comment

I had never been a fan of this store. In fact, it would be fair to say that I mocked it. Repeatedly.

However, I recently put together an online order with a friend of mine. We had talked each other into buying things, mostly we were both dead poor and in need of some new clothes.

The box arrived and when Keiko and I opened it we were hit with a musty smell. Hrm. It wasn’t proving me wrong so far. But I pulled out (and aired) all the clothes and then started trying on. Everything we had selected had been cotton, simple and cute. And everything I tried on was great! Sure, the quality was lame, but the styles, fit and fabrics weren’t half bad. Fair to say, I was impressed.

Now I am attempting to not allow myself to be a regular Forever21 shopper. I know the old Kate would have laughed at me, curled up her nose at my denim jumper and flat out snarled at the cute little panties I ordered. But new Kate can’t stop making online shopping lists and then deleting them.

Siiiigh

Here are some things I can’t seem to shake wanting:

Go Fish!

Thank you to my lovely, lovely friend Cristalle for working at such an adorable vintage store! Go Fish is jam packed with perfect little bits and bobs to cute up your home, and they also have wonderful pieces of furniture! Like this fantastic, vintage Cole Steel desk!

New desk!

I have been searching high and low for the perfect desk for our new, small, adorable apartment and this is spot on. SO excited. Of course, it needed a little mouse pad…so I had to make one…such a chore!

New desk!I did also pick up a selection of new, old Pyrex. Which I LOVE! I will have to take some photos to share.

Where Am I?
