I seriously feel sort of strange about shopping for NEW clothes. Not new to me (I can buy thrift every day of the week), but spanking new. I had been contemplating a purchase at a very popular (ahem, ModCloth) website for a while and I finally just broke down and did it. Below is a letter I feel like my conscience should write:
I have seen you around. I have to admit, I think you are really cute. Everyone talks about you all the time, I mean you are so popular. The thing is, I usually avoid the popular crowd, but you seem. . . different. To be honest I have watched you quietly for months. You probably don't even know I exist. That's okay. I would rather stay quiet and adore you from afar. If you ever came to me and said hi, I think I would turn into a complete dork and lose it anyway. I follow you on twitter and try to ignore your Music Monday Samples (great) or your quirky updates on what you are up to, but find myself creepy peeping on you anyway. OH!! Your darn daily item updates and peep toe pumps and vintage gems!!! I think I am worried that this will turn into a full on obsession and I will end up giving you everything I earn, and my thrift stores will feel so ashamed of me for giving it up for retail all of the time and having nothing left for them. I just had to tell you though, I think I like you. Actually, I have a super big crush on you. Please don't tell anyone.
