    You've probably got PLaydice pretty jealous with those.

    Great find.

    Amusingly a friend of mine's GF is my wife's size but taller, and LOVES clothes, and LOVES getting thrifted stuff from me. NWT Alexander Wang runway dress? Sure. A little DVF? Why not. Some other epic bits? Bring it on. My wife does not love the fact that the friend's gf sends me pix of the clothes being modelled... but you know, whatever. SHE PASSED. MOVING ON.

    Found my first seven folds (Marinella, Paul Stuart) as well as a sick Polo Norwegian cardigan with alternating buffalo/Indian head nickel buttons. Been sick this week so not much dipping around, but happy to have a couple finds.

    You beat me to it. I was going to say This This This.

    When we moved into our new house, I gave my wife the walk in closet in the master. She was stunned. Until she realized I was taking over the ENTIRE guest bedroom -- closet, floor space, drawers, everyfuckingthing -- by adverse possession.

    Haha our last house had walk in floor to ceiling in the master, and I "shared" it pretty well, but still had overflow in the guest closet.

    In the recent move, I pulled the same stunt you did, as I don't like having to split it up haha. Won't be here too long though, so we'll see how the next arrangement works out.

    Is it a problem that domicile decisions have "closet space/locations" on the top 5-7 important list?

    My GF is whatever about clothes. She likes some of the stuff I get for her. I have a whole spare bedroom for clothes, though, but I still use every other closet in the house >_<

    I will admit the more that I thrift and grab RL stuff, the more I respect the things he's done. I hate the manufacturing in third world countries, but the styling/conceptualization/materials/construction are all top top notch.
