    If you do this, isn't your "disorder" still exerting just as much influence on your life? Except, in this case, instead of being a compulsive shopper, you metamorphosize into a penny pincher.

    Finally have a good amount of funds saved up in my PP from selling things, trying to decide on what to do with it.

    Thinking about setting aside like $300 to buy stupid shit like white jeans and brown boots, then investing the rest. Just bought some finance books today, gonna educate myself about money management and all that grown up bullshit

    How does sizing on Stone Island Shadow Projects stuff compare to standard Stone Island? I am sometimes medium and sometimes large in reg stone island depending on jacket/sweater/shirt fit etc.

    - I work in retail and am surrounded by such consumerism it's become a real turnoff. I walk around looking at all this designer shit and it's actually rare I even find something I would like to buy, and then it's just overpriced. The discount, which for some is a major job perk, is actually useless to me. I don't make enough to buy the stuff I sell, or at least I wouldn't spend the money on it anyway. Either it's some loud obnoxious thing that's all about look without any real taste, or it's so damn minimal that the price seems absurd for what it is.


    -I want to start dressing like 'an adult', ie wearing more button ups instead of t-shirts, losing 'immature' patterns, colors and fabrics, and investing in a few well designed pieces of outerwear and footwear. Got too much shit floating around from high-school days and hand-me-downs, or just random generic purchases.

    Didn;t you start this type of dicussion a little while ago?

    I find it very ironic.


    Nice brands man, you work at a mall?

    ? I just said I'm not inspired by most of the stuff I see around me in retail and am surprised that everyone else seems so intent on buying it. I also said that I'm not particularly happy with the clothes I've got since it seems like a lot of generic stuff so I want to reduce that and then pick up a few solid pieces.

    don't remember, don't care. I actually wasn't really looking to start any particular discussion, just sayin I don't really see anything else I like out there, so much junk and so many people intent on buying it. The last discussion I started was about what factors are involved in an item's price or decision factors in buying it and saying that construction quality / durability seems like a bad reason.

    explain the irony (0). I thought I set out to do what SF is all about, learning to independently evaluate an item and determine it's value and appropriateness for the person in terms of fit and personal styling, regardless of the brand. Much of my stuff is not particularly inspirational or interesting, I agree, that's why I'm here to learn and see what else is out there. I still think there are a few good pieces in my wardrobe that conform to a certain look, fit me well, are well designed, and were a good price to design ratio...
    currently working high end dept store but it's slanted a bit towards the 'fashion' side of things. I see a lot of 'design' with big price tags and people who don't know any better buying.

    You sound really confused, and I don't have the patience to help you. More so, only because you seem pretty set on your own jaded view of consumerism / fast fashion.

    Also,

    So, you remember, and you don't care. Yeah I don't care either. The irony.

    Get out now. I mean quite your job.

    eh, I'm just in a shit mood, sorry bud. It's late, i'm sober, and spending the whole weekend working.
    The source of the confusion is I'm trying to reconcile my disgust of consumerism with figuring out my personal aesthetic which will require me to donate/sell stuff i don't want and go buy stuff I do.

    not the same thing. I don't remember what someone referred to saying it was the same point I'd brought up in the past. Don't remember that. I recapped a previous discussion I'd brought up that I do remember, which I thought had at least some merit as something i do remember talking about just recently.

    for my sake or everyone elses'? Working on it actually. I've found that when you're immersed in the stuff (selling or designing) you either embrace it / buy in or it suddenly just becomes generic widgets on the shelf.

    Not sure if serious or not but I'd prefer a larger pattern without all the small pattern detailing like this one has.
