I love and appreciate high quality designer products but you are always going to be paying more than the products themselves are worth. That’s the case with nearly everything but the ratio is much more ridiculous when it comes to designer goods. The parent companies, corporations, manufacturers, distributors and middle men need to get paid too. They want you to buy their products and these bloggers are giving them all the free advertising they could ever wish for. There’s nothing wrong with buying designer goods, but you need to pick them carefully. Unless you’re rich to the point where you don’t need to concern yourself with price tags anymore, they’re investments, it’s not shopping. I refuse to be impressed easily. Pay attention to craftsmanship, materials used, durability, overall quality. Just because something has a designer emblem pressed on to it doesn’t mean it’s impressive and worth your money. Be picky, have high standards. Don’t give away your hard earned money for less than it’s worth, you have to be smart about it. 9 times outta 10 I’d rather make myself $2,000 richer than buy that Celine or those Miu Mius. It’s a delicate balance. Don’t be fooled by that prestigious image, they need your money just as badly as you need it. Don’t give it out so easily.
Thanks babe, I’ll make a playlist and post it in a little bit!

This is my final edit of my fall shopping list. First comes the shoes, the coats, the jeans and the dresses. The Givenchy Antigona is probably my favorite, it reminds me of a classic orange Birkin but it’s new and fresh. It’s one of those bags that everyone would admire but if they could buy it, they wouldn’t choose that color. That’s what I love about it.
Of course I need those MA1 bombers and all the simple single sole heels. Some slightly ripped fitted jeans to wear with heels, high waisted skirts for anytime of the day, and simple, elegant dresses for occasions and dinners. These are my little investment pieces for the fall. This isn’t stuff I want just for right now, these are pieces I can see myself growing with.

I did a lot of nice things this weekend. Hung out with some good people. Ate vietnamese sandwiches and the best vegan tacos I’ve ever had. Ordered a pretty new septum ring and a pair of heels I love. Found my new favorite beverage: 3/4 grapefruit juice, 1/4 orange juice + squeeze of lime and a pineapple slice on the glass. Bought the long awaited September issue of Vogue. Spent time with my love. Spent several hours in bookstores, finally bought The Art of Happiness by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and The Beautiful and the Damned by F Scott Fitzgerald. Tried green tea kit kats. Went grocery shopping, found ingredients for smoothie bowls. Spent some time reading, thinking. Set new goals. Had a few realizations.
