In Love with Expensive Stuff: My Personal Experience with Living Up to My Astrological Sign

2.11.2015

What's your sign?

Leo

K, end of story.

I'm not someone who necessarilyyyy buys into astrology, sun signs, and the like; though I enjoy indulging in them every once in a while (mainly when they suit my point -- classic leo behavior, amiright?!). According to my sign, I also like indulging in expensive ass shit. This is true.

Totokealo, LaGar├žonne ...and the list goes on. Such beauty, such torture.

Current obsession? Lauren Manoogian. 

Current word I have a hard time spelling and wrapping my head around? Manoogian

Manoogian. Why can't my brain say this word properly? It comes out Ma-noon-a-gan and I've stopped trying to correct myself.

Cut to my usual 2am website browsing. The Trapeze Dress catches my eye:


And just like that, I fall in love.

It ticks everything off my list:

X Slouchy
X Comfy
X Black
X Oversized-ish
X Expensive as f*!$

[ Yup, that's my checklist of buying stuff. ]

So, I bit the bullet and spent over $300 on a beautifully knit sweater dress because I'm crazy! Crazy in love...

Well, it arrived about a week later and WAS TOO FUCKING SMALL. Not because I didn't size myself correctly, but literally too small in the sense that it must have been a Petite (which they don't even offer so wat da fuk?!) that somehow got marked as a Small because the measurements were all off and that girl in the picture above is wearing a Small and about 5 inches taller than me and it barely covered my 5'4 butt.

TRAGEDY! I refused to listen to the universe's sign that I did not need to own this dress and contacted LaGar├žonne for an exchange. It's currently en route back to them and a new one will be sent out to me ASAP. Wearing it is like dancing around a comfy little cloud and I refuse to pass that up.

So, until I can sit around in my comfy sweater dress 24/7... let's take a moment to drool over all things Lauren Manoogian:








can i live in this hood with you, mysterious lady?

this hood makes no logical sense, yet all the sense in the world.

I want to be her. Haley and I have an unhealthy obsession with this photo.


am I losing my mind and all credibility that I'm like SORTA DOWN with this?! netflix marathon outfit. check!
