Sad to say this, but I’ve reached a new consumer level. Achievement “buying unnecessary stuff” unlocked! There’s not a week without the usual thrifting experience, and most of the clothes I really don’t need. Well, if we look at things realistically, people need only few stuff in order to survive. But try surviving without electricity or hot water. We didn’t have hot water for two weeks. So whenever I took a shower, I experienced a mini heart attack, accompanied by a protest of every single skin cell, and piercing ice needles in the brain. The first 50 seconds were like a coffee shot in the veins, very refreshing!
So having been raised in a consumer world, I can’t help but grab whatever I can find in my favorite second hand shops. And it’s not a disaster to my wallet either, because they’re cheap, that’s the point right? Keep saying that to yourself when you end up buying the 9th polka dot shirt and 5th pair of jeans. It’s cheap, damn it, and I’m not gonna let it here to rot or to be worn by a much uglier person, tragic!
Jokes aside, by now you’ve probably guessed that I love thrifting, as most of the girls here. But I love it for a particular reason – because of the sucky shopping malls. I hate those polished, glass window displays, those blinding artificial lights, and the crowded McDonalds stands reeking of stagnant oil. Whenever I go to a normal shop, I’m greeted by the same view: shining and sparkling junk. You know that gorgeous, gold buckles, brown bag, with a yellow halo around it, won’t look so good when you bring it back home right? Instead it’s going to be an ordinary brown bag, and you’ll be wondering till the die you die, why the hell did you buy it.
Share dah love!
