    I'm always so frustrated by Polo's coat sizing. It's ridiculous how "off" their sizes are with their outerwear.

    Glad you're not dead!

    Side note: I finally know someone who became a statistic. Scratch that off the bucket list!

    I’m experimenting with dying action figures, the left is a regular alien, the two right figures had a purple wash. Good way to get action out of figures you tired of.
    I got more results I can post, if folks are interested.

    It’s the flyers for “crash worship” google it, it’s neat. Bet I cake off on these slowly.

    I grab bottles of wine from the store, but the swap did me this for the cost of one I’d buy in the store. I left a good one I got to go back for worth 200$

    BURBERRY is not tight enough with the clothing channels. I know where it’s falling off the truck and shit. I’m not supposed to have this much clothing meant for Bloomingdales coming in, I’m a dusty swap meet vintage clothing guru hippy with the latest, you think I’m playing?

    What’s the ticket on these? And how I obtained? You pay for sneakers right? Not if your somebody in L.A. they give you these shits. Does selling bullshit you thrifted to the big homie and him tossing you these to cover the debt count as thrifting? Cause I didn’t pay for these bitches, they came to me. Real spill.

    The waffle bottoms I feel bad I paid so low. The Vuitton took Finesse. The hippiestock shirt I paid 80$, my boy got it the day after I set the intent to own one. It’s no exaggeration, I start wanting certain things and It magnet attracts. I sold too much stuff the same day I bought it today. I should have pictured it. Suckers will be all over gram with it. I think the price is higher for the photo cred lol

    Yet growing up in the 80's, I didn't realize how 80's it was. It just seemed like a regular day...

    No doubt. Speaking of which, I ethrifted my best 80s grail, and it will be here either today or tomorrow. I’ve been waiting for this one for almost 30 years...

    I picked up some vintage and ugly AF Hermes slip ons recently but what I didn't know when I bought them was the owner had bunions (which made me feel sick) as there are two stretched out bits on the leather. How can I remove these lumps?
