i’m telling you, a penguin tried to hitch a ride this morning.

has it escaped me to mention the very mundane fact that it’s cold? but, not just like, hitch your shoulders up and go brrr cold, it’s more of a blow-to-the-lungs sort of cold. it just cuts right through you, or rather, makes you think your feet might actually be frozen and should be chipped at like ice for a drink. it’s very pleasant, trust me.

and i see you, the general (some of) you, trying to get away with a flimsy jacket and trainers thinking you’re made of something sturdier than the rest of us, and ‘no, no, it’s not THAT cold.’ but it is, and i’m going to make like your mother and tell you to bundle up. because, if being bundled can look as good as this, let’s get brave and move this whole operation to the yukon.

fast fashion has its place.

it takes time to get to where quality trumps quantity, and if you put your head into it, you will eventually come to understand that the cheaper something is, the faster the flush of IJUSTGOTSOMETHINGNEWANDCUUUUUTE wears off.*

i do, however, understand the lure of the cheap and cheerful, and although my days of the only-for-a-moment purchase are coming to an end, (i’m too ahem, mature (?) for those stores now anyway), there are those times when sure, yes, the just gotta-have-its take over and your impulses lead you to the register with a little something cute, quick, and ultimately just-for-a-season in your hands.

*and now to be the very responsible adult that i am, if you want to read about the fast-fashion industry, and how we might just have to cool our jets on the quick impulse buys, and maybe start, you know, saving for something better, read this:
