The Emo Clotheshorse

What is it with me and emotional attachments to clothes? Oh no do I sound like Seinfeld?! Horror! Seriously though, I am so ridiculous when it comes to getting rid of clothing--especially when its something I handmade or something I wore in high school (most of which does not fit).
I was trying to consign some things at Golden Rule that fit this months early 90's beach theme and half of it ended up coming back home with me! As for the stuff that ended up in the store, I intentionally priced most of it so high that it probably won't sell. I'm like Steve Buscemi in Ghost World for goodness sakes! Get a grip Long-necker! Here are some examples of what I couldn't let go.

A Middle Agye Pervert original. I manically block printed this on a sunny Sunday last April.
My favorite sweater from 9th grade.

The Beach Bunny sweatshirt, a perfect fit. Yes, the white on the bunnies and the lawn chairs is that white puffy raised stuff you remember from all your fave 90's gear.

Paint splatters, puffy paint, and mirrors make this shirt a serious keeper.

Ugh, when will this sketchiness end? Never?! Yeah probably never.

My Spring Wish List

Normally I am not a huge fan of Spring fashion because of the color palate, but this Spring I am thrilled to see navy, black, and gray abound. Its not that I have anything against color. I have just come to realize that most of the beautiful colors that exist in the world don't belong anywhere near my closet. Allow me to explain. Five years ago I threw open my closet doors and realized that it was a horrible rainbow nightmare in there. I had all these crazy ass clothes and no basics. There was all this teal and hot pink, and I don't even look good in teal! I had this totally slammin teal and silver zebra print sequined top that was totally amazing to look at, but mostly when it was on the hanger. So I swore off color, cleaned out my closet, and only bought clothes that were black or grey. It was pretty easy considering for those years my New Years Resolution was to be more goth. A few years went by and I decided navy blue things were okay to buy, and currently I've been sticking pretty strictly to primary colors (usually all three incorperated at once).

With that said, everything on my wish list is rather colorful! I think I'm going to have to start buying rainbows again.

Ew fur! I hate fur! These scarves are so cute though. Maybe its faux.
