I’m not ashamed to admit that I go shopping a lot. I used to go shopping way more when I had money as a working member of society. But now that I’m a poor, sad waif of a law student, I don’t hit Nordstroms nearly as often as I used to. Instead, I go stealing in my Mom’s closet.
What’s better than buying new clothes? Finding awesome and unique vintage pieces in Mumsies’ closet. For free. Not only can I find really well-made items, I can usually spirit them out of there without anyone the wiser. That’s what happens when you keep every article of clothing you’ve ever had since the ’80s in your packed-to-bursting closet, *cough, Mom, cough*.
Last time I was over at my parents’ house in the Sunset (to tell them I was engaged!), I made off with a red skirt. It helps that we’re about the same size and have somewhat similar taste in clothing. Actually, I lie, Mumsies loves sequins and all things short and sparkly. I don’t. But this little red skirt is cute. It’s very short, as in breeze-on-the-butt short, but very cute. Despite it’s briefness, I wore it to school today. Hey, I’m 24. These years are considered my “prime,” better show it off before it sags.
I also stole a blue chambray full circle ankle-length skirt. Don’t tell Mumsies. It’s incredibly “Little House on the Prairie” and schoolmarm-ish but this is San Francisco. We have freaks galore. Hopefully I can pull it off. And even if I can’t, I’m totally wearing it this weekend.
Keep it sassy, San Francisco.
