All too well

#teenvogue // Topshop jeans, Zara top and coat, asos shearling collar, Tuffa boots, bracelet c/o romwe.com

Of all the things I thought I could get out of online shopping, a life lesson was not in the top 5.
I was sitting at my desk, looking at a leather skirt on ASOS. My heart said BUY THAT SHIT UP NOW, My head said BUY THAT SHIT UP NOW, my bank card said 'You already have one that is basically identical, Camilla'.
The keyword being 'basically' not 'exactly'.
Anyway, so I sat and pondered the financial consequences (which were minor, but I was feeling emotional at the time and isn't everything more dramarama when you've just watched The Notebook?) and then I refreshed the page. After all that pondering, followed by wondering and finally a decision to be a rebel, the skirt had sold out. Now I'll be the first to admit this is a first world problem, but my heart did break a little (after watching aforementioned film, I was at breaking point people). This had me thinking, bad things happen when we think too much. Thinking makes things boring, loses us opportunities, drives us a little crazy. Sometimes, an impulsive move is the best kind. 
I love you, leather skirt, and one day we shall be together.

  2. And I always do a lot of thinking before I buy something and sometimes like you said it gets sold out as soon as I make up my mind to buy it. That sucks.
