givingup.

for the first time this year, i’ve given up something for lent. it’s not religiously necessitated, but rather financially.

(j and i calculated that after grad classes, certification costs, mentor fees, and taxes, we’re bringing in about half of our “salary”. which is certainly nothing to complain about, but is pretty tight considering i’m living in the city, paying for an lsat class, and repaying loans.)

i’ve never been a huge shopper in the first place, but i’ve always loved the experience of it. especially with mom or the girls. or c. i draw inspiration from the artfully and aesthetically perfect styling of many stores, like the palettes at anthropologie:

so can we expect the clothing and accessories wish posts to go up as i abstain? i’ll consider them my longing window shopping gazes.

posting about great style i can’t have is like tasting a piece of chocolate and then spitting it out. all taste, no calories, limited satisfaction (hah, c). but it’ll have to work for now.

luckily this doesn’t apply to ticket purchases. april is go big or go home month for experiences of the auditory persuasion. coming up:
