Good As New
I have an annoying tendency -- I seem to assign value to clothes based on newness. I am always excited to wear new things immediately, even if they don't end up being longtime favorites. For instance, I wore this slouchy striped tee (after taking some scissors to it) and these menswear oxfords as soon as I brought them home from the thrift store yesterday. I don't even know if I like the shoes, but they were only $3, and I knew I'd wear them at least once. I suppose as long as I confine impulse buys to thrift stores, it won't put too much of a strain on the wallet. Oh, and don't mind that ghostly aura next to me.
