Decapitate Grass, Aquire Currency


_____Well, first off, this is my 100th post! I would have never even realized that unless I saw it right before I posted this. Most people have so many posts and can make 100 posts much more quickly than I can (I've had this blog for what, an on-and-off two years or so?) but this is an accomplishment nonetheless!

_____Moving on, these lovely boots are my first pair of tall brown boots, and my oh my are they amazing! They remind me of Link's boots (from the Legend of Zelda... any fellow Zelda fans out zer!? wooofdshfgo) and consequently make me want to save some princesses and go on some ridiculous adventures to find some medallions. Or at least stomp around a lot. It still hasn't gotten legitimately cold down here, which makes me sad, because I have so much new cold weather stuff I want to wear... namely these boots, scarves, tights, and jackets. Why, it peaked 70 degrees yesterday! It's a bit cooler today, but still, how ridiculous. It surely doesn't feel much like Christmas yet.

_____These gloves were kind of a splurge for $30 (oh, Urban Outfitters...) but hey at least they're leather. Slightly pointless because of the whole fingerless thing, but it's fashion... right, guys?! Right?! I saw them and was all, whoa, it's like a bomber jacket condensed into gloves that would not keep my hands warm and wouldn't match anything I own... I guess that means... I guess that means that I should buy them! I'm good at rationalizing my purchases. Anyway.

______What's the most pointless purchase you've ever made, whether it's something you will probably never wear or some odd little thing like a tiny shopping cart (which might be useful for holding my pointless gloves)?

Oh man, those boots are TOTALLY like Link's boots! So good! And I would totally buy those gloves, pointless or point...ed? They're so cute. I asked for mittens for Christmas 'cause I think they're real cute, but honestly I'll probably never wear them since it's not that convenient to have, like, two fingers instead of five.

I was actually thinking those boots looked like Link's boots! haha I love them, especially with those fingerless gloves. impracticality for the win! Seriously though, those gloves are kind of epic.

Congrats on your 100th post! And who doesn't want a mini shopping cart? I love the ones they make for toddlers - I almost bought one last month when I was christmas shopping for charity. Toy stores are a dangerous place, let me tell you!

ohh I love your boots and stripe sweater! it's an adorable outfit!

LyddieGal said...

Ahhh, those boots are awesome, and totally reminiscent of something Link would wear, or other video game characters of similarly themed RPGs.

I have to say I splurged on some fingerless gloves as well and... well... I almost never wear them, because I never know when it is cold enough to wear gloves, but still warm enough that your fingers wont freeze. Oh well.

Hope you had an amazing christmas!!

and PS, I think that is the most creative way I've ever heard anyone describe mowing the lawn, props to your friend.

Chic on the Cheap

I loveee those boots. I can see why you reference Link! Anyways, there are a ton of meh...stuff, I shall say that I've spent a lot on. But now I know my lesson! Not to do it again! I seriously love those gloves!
