Even if you hate shopping, you won’t not have a shirt, because, most likely, there’s a souvenir shirt in your closet somewhere. (Unless you frequently clean out your closet and donate those shirts elsewhere.) Everyone has, at least once in their lives,…

This is my anti-wish list: the things of which I have way too many, things that I’m trying to use up or use more. (Or maybe even give away.)

When everybody started wearing printed leggings, I was so sure that it wouldn't suit me. I'm not as sure now.

As a someone who hates shopping, you won’t see me jumping to buy the next big trend in clothing. I like to stay in the bounds of timeless clothing (except, of course, if they were souvenir shirts, or geek ones that had movie references.) When everybody…

Short hair calls for big earrings.

As someone who hates shopping, I try to take care of my things so that I won’t have to shop for its replacement in case I wear it out or lose it. This is why the phrases “from ages ago” and “I can’t remember where I got these” pop up lots of times in this…

I kind of needed to look smart for this finance and visa errand day, so I tried to balance this fun Get Laud! dress and a corporate-y blazer+stockings combo. What do you think? A new post on the Nonshopper blog!

When I started this blog, I hated shopping, I didn’t wear dresses unless I had to, wore nothing but Chuck Taylors, and thought stockings were only for the 80s. Around the same time, I was also wishing that I could muster what I needed to fulfill my high…
