Things I Have Seen and Now Must Buy

Like I said in my previous post I’m trying to cut down on what I buy. So far I haven’t missed shopping that much. I think when I do buy something it’s more likely to be a keeper. I’m trying to wait for things that I think are a perfect ten. Yesterday I saw a pair of stud earrings that looked like the moon. There are versions of all the planets and a few with galaxies. They were pretty pricey for what they were though and I want a whole set. I tried to look on etsy but most of their versions just have glass and I’m worried about the weight of it. This isn’t a moon shape, it is an image of the actual moon but it’s so beautiful at first glance it just seems like a gemstone. I guess I’ll put it on my Christmas list.

Change of Direction

I’ve been shopping less this year so that I can spend my money and energy on having new and fun experiences. One song that always makes me smile is the Ukulele Anthem by Amanda Palmer. It is on the Theatre is Evil album. She talks about how the world would be such a better place if everyone would just learn how to play the ukulele.

I’ve tried it before but just didn’t like the music. Today I found out that there’s an acoustic-electric ukulele that would make it easier to play some of my favorite songs. It makes me tempted to get in on a Mail your order today! deal and really start taking Amanda’s advice.

My Shopping List for This Fall

Granted, I’m going to buy most of this from thrift stores (not the leggings). Here is what I feel like I need for fall/winter this year.

1. Galaxy print leggings
2. Faux leather leggings in gray
3. Oversized sweatshirt with crocheted skull
4. Envelope purse
5. Tall boots
6. Leather moto jacket

Some of these pieces were popular last year or even the year before but I tend to think about trends for a long time before I decide to buy. In this case I’m ready because even though they’re trends they speak so much to my persoanlity that I’ll have them for awhile.
