Now, when deliberating about this whole New Year's resolution, I realized that I might have to make a few exceptions to this whole strictly second hand thing, and they are as follows:
1. I may purchase my delicates, including socks tights, retail, which I do not think is unreasonable.
2. I may purchase clothing items for others retail. (Because not everyone appreciates a good thrift gift!)
3. I may receive gifts that were purchased retail. This may seem like I'm bending the rules a bit, but come on, I'm not going to turn down a perfectly good gift!
Rule number three brings me to today's topic: new boots. I went out shopping with my mom today, and we stumbled upon these lovely dark brown suede cowboy ankle booties. She wanted to get them for me, and I just couldn't say no. I am seriously in love. Seriously. So thank you, mom, for the sweet gift, and hooray for rule number three!
