That’s The Only Time I Get Sentimental…

I have a strange sentimental attachment to random things. Like these red Supergas…that I’ve wanted ever since I got back from Italy (in 2008, ha). I bought these lovely red ones for $7.99 (hey, what can I say other than my usual, “Fashion Brownie strikes again!” tag line).

"I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare"…for retail prices (hehe).

 The only problem is, Superga sizing does not work for my feet, 9’s are too small and these 9 1/2’s were like clown shoes (not that I cared, lol). So, I sold ‘em on Sunday to a 2nd hand store along w/ a vintage Harley Davidson tank (that I really miss) and a flag print top. Then, I turned right around and bought a kale, spinach, brazil nut, etc. juice that ironically, cost the same price I originally paid for the Supergas. Farewell, Supergas. Hello, Pressed Juicery obsession! :P

Everybody’s Going To Coachella?
That’s lovely. But I’m more excited about the fact that I found star print Converse High-Tops for $24.99!! I’m even more excited that I had a store credit and didn’t spend a dime(!). Now, if I could only wear these bad boys at Coachella (sad face/ain’t nobody got $400 for Coachella tix). :P
Happy Friday, Fashion Brownie:)
P.S. Yes, I am too old to be wearing star print Converse High Tops, but sometimes you just gotta break the fashion rules.

Wild & Crazy Sunday Night…
I have no idea why I snapped this photo last night. But I’m glad I did, because it is photographic evidence of the (alleged) cause of the worst stomachache/overall yuckiness/no bueno 24hrs ever. I do not feel happy like a room without a roof today…I feel sleep deprived and my belly still hurts(!). 
This post is neither fashion or puppy related, but a good “note to self” for the next time I try to act like a trendy hipster who only consumes healthy things. Plus, I’m convinced this only happened because they were out of my (delicious) chocolate coconut chia pudding…and because I picked the 2nd bottle on the shelf when I always pick the 3rd one (yes, I’m strange)…and also because it was on sale…but mostly because I always see the pretty people drinking it and I wanted to pretend I was one of ‘em. It didn’t taste half bad though. :/

I Know Things…
Unimportant, sale-related things that make me more excited than they should. For example, I know that these two Herschel backpacks are on sale at Urban Outfitters(!!). It feels like this big, huge secret and I’m the only one that knows it (and whoever reads this post, lol)!  They look like every other Herschel backpack on display, except they are on sale!! Which is rare for Herschel…and even though I’m well past grade school and probably don’t need a backpack, I still want all of them (especially the bright blue one with palm trees!).
Plus, maybe someday I will backpack through Europe(!), or go to Yosemite(!), or Disneyland (yes, I group Disneyland right up there with Europe). In which case, I will definitely need a backpack, right?! 
So, one for my sissy’s upcoming birthday and one for this Fashion Brownie (hallelujah for store credits/gift cards)! Now, which one do I keep? :P

I’m So Excited…
And I can’t hide it(!). I made $87 this past weekend…from selling my clothes/shoes at a second-hand store. Orange huaraches from Urban Outfitters, sandals from ZARA, a pair of orange  Havaianas (among other things). $87.00! Do you know how much money $87 is to an unemployed person?! It’s like winning the lottery(!), but also really sad because it is such a tiny amount of money compared to having a stable salary. 
Is it sad and pathetic that I am this excited? Probably, but at least I got to treat myself to an iced latte, jumbo bacon/cheese pretzel and a bowl of muesli at Röckenwagner after my selling adventures. I’m so happy, I feel like a room without a roof (even if I am kinda sad and pathetic)! :P
Fashion Brownie:)
p.s. That is a parking ticket I’m holding, not money. I just needed a visual for this riveting story, lol.

Fridays…

Ideal for Rock ‘n’ Roll, puppy sneezes and returning all the (Nike) things (see previous post)!! :P

Buy All The Nikes!!!
I have a serious Nike obsession (mostly Frees, although I’m open to other styles). One that I cannot afford (sad face). In my defense, how can I turn down discount Nikes, I ask you?! I can’t, that’s how. This talent of finding all the things at discount prices taunts this unemployed girl. :P
Now, which ones should I return before these purchases post in my “balance due” section on chase.com? I know, I know…return all the Nikes. But look at all the purty colors. :(

Happy Sunday, Fashion Brownie

Today Was A Good Day…
Even though I sliced my finger this morning trying to zip up my bag…then Burt The Parti Poodle and I were asked (politely) to leave the store as there were no dogs allowed (even though there were no signs and I was just trying to buy him a new doggy bed)…and now these ankle boots are making sashimi out of my feet (ouch x’s 100).
 Still, today was a good day. Best of all, I came home and there was a box of Sprinkle’s cupcakes (don’t tell SusieCakes) on the counter (omg, omg my three chins are so excited!).
Happy Friday!
Fashion Brownie:)
p.s. I also saw two little parti poodles today that looked like Burt, but with fancy haircuts. :)

p.s. tight (aka too small) cut-off jeans are never a good idea…especially when it’s 85 degrees outside. :/

Daylight Savings…
A long, long time ago…I used to work on Sundays. Except back then, the news, your neighbor and every person you knew didn’t remind you 18 times about daylight savings. Instead, on that fateful Daylight Savings Sunday (900 yrs. ago), I (and I’m pretty sure all of my co-workers), got a phone call from the boss lady wondering where the heck we all were. Luckily, we all made it in before the store opened (probably with a look of terror/fear in our eyes, lol). 
I always remember that call when daylight savings rolls around. Plus, when you work Sundays (and Saturdays), you tend to avoid the Sunday night work week grumps. I miss work…and getting the Sunday night grumps…I even miss that boss lady (she was quite funny).

Fashion Brownie:)
p.s. I took this picture, isn’t it pretty?! :)

The Crazy Things I Do…

I watch a lot of reality TV (“don’t judge, it’s my thing”). Except I don’t watch like a normal person, I channel surf, leave the room to analyze the current status of my bangs in the bathroom mirror, get on my phone to Google puppy pics, etc. So most of the time, I miss a large portion of a show. Except this past Monday, when I was watching Housewives of Beverly Hills (hey, at least I don’t watch The Bachelor like every other chick). And thus began the obsession over a certain shower curtain (the one Yolanda set up in her daughter’s NYC pad). Lucky for me, another blogger had already posted info about it (possessionista.com, thanks!).

With furbaby in tow, I went in search of said shower curtain and soon realized that, A) ain’t nobody got $19.99 for a shower curtain and B) why do they make cotton shower curtains?!

So, I ended up filling my cart with $1 (sale!) spaghetti sauce and greek yogurt…and then made a pit stop in the clearance section, where I found the window curtain version of the shower curtain for $5!! In the worst possible color ever (I need blue, I tell you)!! Pretty sure it’s going back tomorrow.

That’s my boring story for Thursday. :/

p.s. Aaaand I just realized you need two panels for one window. Awesome.

I Got You A Dollar…
Actually, a pair of earrings for a dollar. Yes, you read correctly…$1. Should unimportant things such as this make me so happy?! 
I suppose it’s partly due to the fact that earlier in the day, I attempted to apply for a job that requested a “two year history record” on top of all of the rest of their prerequisites. I’m pretty sure “dog-sitter/babysitter/blogger/chauffeur/fashion consultant” don’t count, right? Sad Face for job apps, Happy Face for $1 earrings!

It Is Totally Normal…
To buy things for imaginary trips, activities and events. Case in point, this GAP floral bomber jacket (that I got with an extra 50%!). Purchased in case I ever go to a Dodgers game (Dodger dog!). 
I have never been to a Dodgers game…and more importantly (insanely), I have no plans to go to one anytime in the near future. But a lady must always be prepared, right? :/

And The Oscar Goes To…
This Cupcake, for being the highlight of my life (before I have to drive to the airport to pick up my sister). I wonder if, “No sissy, I cannot pick you up from LAX because I’m fabulous and invited to allllll of the Oscar parties” would have been a good excuse? :P
Happy Oscar Sunday, FB:)
