And it’s not my hideous habit of taking bathroom selfies (although that probably needs some work at some point). It’s this:
I kind of look like a Von Trapp child modelling the latest in curtain material fashions crafted by Fraulein Maria… Anyway, I have been blinded by an obsession for a print that, let’s face it, is probably well past its use by date already. I know that because once you can purchase something in Kalgoorlie (the top in the top right corner) you know it must be dead everywhere else. I swear to god the kids only just got tamagotchis here.
But even armed with this knowledge check out what’s lurking in my ASOS saved items:
More black and white squares. Two of those dresses look exactly the same only in reverse with an $83 price difference?! I have no why, seeing as they are both 100% polyester.
I like to think I don’t buy cheap, poorly made disposable fashion, but I do (anyone remember the neon phase?!). So I’ve been trying to justify these purchases by telling myself that black and white is classic, timeless even, that I will be wearing these long after we quit obsessing over kale, bunting and gourmet food trucks. But am I kidding myself?
Will these items simply go the same way as my Stevie acid wash jeans; into the ‘I would have to be drunk and temporarily vision impaired to even consider wearing these to paint the house’ pile? I eagerly await your response. I also want you to tell me what the stupidest ‘on trend’ item you’ve ever purchased is. Extra points if you shelled out far too many clams for it….. And go!
