vintage Hulk Hogan t shirt (made into a tank): thrift store
vintage white button down skirt: borrowed from the shop
red sandals: BC
sunglasses: rock candy pastel sunglasses from LuLu*s
A few posts ago I mentioned how there was an Orange County blogger meet up and how LuLu*s was one of our partners. WELL at the event they had a little wheel that you could spin in order to win coupons/ gift cards/ items of clothing and I won a $10 gift card one and was hyped because I had had my eye (eh?) on these sunglasses ever since I saw Ashley from Fancy Fine sporting them. Luckily for me they cost $9 so hooray for that.
I remember reading somewhere about how sunglasses are the worst expensive purchase that you can make because they so easily get lost, scratched, and or broken. It reminded me of when I was in middle school I had THE sweetest pair of Roxy sunglasses. Some of my relatives from out of town came to visit and they took me to the mall and let me pick out something for special for myself. After weighting my options (did I want some platform sandals from Steve Madden? A new Dickies messenger bag? Maybe a tower of TRUE COLORS eyeshadow?) I dragged them to the Roxy store and pointed out a pair of "funky" "retro" sunglasses that I was sure would make me the edgiest most fashion forward fashionista/taste maker in all of 8th grade. They were these oval shaped black sunglasses encrusted with pearls and rhinestones. Pretty freakin classy, no? I was on cloud nine.
Well, fast forward to a few months later to when I accidentally sat on my denim baby Dickies messenger bag totally snapping my sunglasses in half. Saying that I was devastated is an understatement. I was wrecked. My look? Totally destroyed.
Obviously many years have passed since then but that horrible feeling of ruining something so frivolously expensive has always stuck with me.
Question: have you ever broken something stupidly expensive?
