I’ve been really into wearing monochrome and neutrals lately. Too many bright colors turn me off now, and that’s too bad because spring is just around the corner. I can’t hibernate in dark clothes for too long, but I know I can at least have the earth tones linger around those warm months. I’m pretty excited, because I want to dress like a hobo chic for a change :) I can’t wait to have my hair grow to my butt, flowery fungi growing in my hair, and not showering for days… wait, I already do that. Apparently it does wonders for your hair.

I’ve also been really obsessed with Isabel Marant’s sneakers. I know. They are super trendy, but WAY before Marant had these out, I had been begging for someone to make hidden low wedge sneakers for the longest time. I don’t really want to always have bulky looking shoes on, so Marant’s designs are a godsend to me.

The CK bag is great for going to the gym with, but these days, that doesn’t really happen much. I’m going to be selling this bag on eBay for super cheap shortly (link will be up on Sunday night). We’re moving out of our old moldy house and into a new condo, and I desperately need to get rid of a ton of stuff (stuff I’ve worn on the blog, for sure). There’s really no room to be too emotional about material things right now. I’ve donated a lot of our clothes, shoes, accessories, posters, books, records, CDs, tapes, etc even if they looked like new. It’s precisely this, looking like new and never been worn, that I need to get rid of my clothes. It’s clear to me the number of times I’ve actually made use of them. :-/ I’ve kept some to sell for really cheap though, in case some of you might want them. More on that later.

Oh, and have you ever donated things by mistake? I don’t think I recall, at least for now, that I have with anything too precious. My father-in-law though had his $400 chainsaw by accident in the pick up truck with our donation. We had to retrieve it at the end of the day only to find out that Goodwill ended up throwing it away, because they’re not allowed to sell gas-powered things. So, some very nice guys went dumpster diving for us to go find it, and they did. :) The manager said I was lucky, because when most people come back for their accidental donation, they’ve either been put out for sale already, bought, or thrown away and destroyed.
