so i have this thing:
i'm very frugal.
most of what i own is thrifted, (excepting photo equipment).
but i'm trying to be better about saving for & splurging on nice things i really want.
like buying one special dress from madewell or anthro to wear a million different ways.
it's something i've been working on since college, & i think my wardrobe's grateful.
and so i bought this anthropologie coat.
robbie was actually the one who spotted it last month & thought it ruled.
& when i brought it home, robbie said:
"i'm happy you didn't back out of buying yourself something nice, like you usually do."
and i'm happy too. because now i have a neutral coat (ha!).
and i'll keep her forever & pass her on as a heritage piece.
(just like my hunters.)
and the coat & i lived happily ever after. the end.
