Normally I'm really careful with my wallet and take utmost care to buy clothing I can see myself wearing frequently. However, since April, I've made three huge blunders that I simply can't get my head out of.
#1 - Patent black JS Wings
I figured I was still young enough to pull these off and I had an Adidas gift card at the time so it didn't seem like such a big deal. Nothing gets you going like Asian tumblr bitches, and nothing gets them going like stuff they reblog endlessly, right? I picked these up as a present to myself and have worn them 3 times since.
Total investment thus far - $249.50
#2 - Polka Dot Bowtie
Got invited by a bunch of Tumblr bitches to a house party where everyone had to a wear a bowtie (dress codes at house parties now. The only place I could think that sold them was American Apparel. After walking out $36 (36 for a bowtie, really poorer, I felt more awkward than B. Sales at an Abercrombie & Fitch end of season sale. Did get the dome that night, but just ended up going without it.
Total investment thus far - $285.50
#3 - 40 oz. "Givenchy Inspired" Snapback
Happened to be in Kith/Atrium shopping w/ a female best friend and none other than Ronnie Fieg himself is behind the register. My friend decides she doesn't want the Doc Martens we had come for and I see RF staring me down like I burned one of his shitty collabs. Not wanting to take the L in front of this huge waste of talent, I grabbed the first hat I could find (my bawks logo was looking a little beat) and gave him $45 of my own money for it and walked out. It's currently sitting I'm the back of my closet and I havent worn it yet.
Total investment - Somewhere over 300
I'm not liking this pattern, but I sure as hell know some of you own Pyrex hoodies and LV backpacks amirite.
P.s. About 30 swagfags tried to fight me in the Adidas Soho store since I had gotten the last pair of shoes they were all desperately searching for. $250 L is actually a minor W.
TL;DR - Please help me validate my terrible decision making and addiction to tumblr pop ass :/
