    Net shopping, secondhand flash deals, and deep sales -- the opportunity to spend a lot of money without thinking has never been more present.

    What's are some of the most ridiculous impulse purchases people have made? Was alcohol involved? Anyone end a weeklong bender with a CCP scar stitch??

    I only wish.

    I got a pair of Guidi boots, but I had been wanting them anyway, and I wear them all the time, so... not so crazy?

    I got my wife a woven leather handbag that was probably silly priced. It is really nice though.

    Came across a Margiela 92-93 "Dolls Wardrobe" mens chunky knit. They made them with the same measurements as the original dolls clothes just increased by x% in every proportion. Love the history behind it, but inherently its somewhat non anatomical. I might get it framed or displayed in some way...

    A pair of ratty sheepskin flight pants. In full possession of my faculties.

    You mean actually? Nothing. You just feel like a dummy rubbing a $25 deer bone that you bought over the internet on your shoe.

    It's *supposed* to help shine up shell cordovan.

    But nope. First rub and a sense of self awareness washes over you. Then you realize you're a dummy.

    Just impulse bought this RO leather, which I believe is from the 2008 'Creatch' collection. I've been trying to find for the past...5 years? Never thought I would.

    I'm on blood thinners, so no alcohol involved. Some serious insomnia, though, and some doubts as to whether it will fit seeing as how it's billed as an M and my only other RO jacket is a size 50. OTOH, I'm at my lowest weight since high school, so...maybe?

    It is the shawl collar sweater on the bottom row. The wool is also basically 'hard', its got a crunch to it thats not terribly pleasant. The sleeves are like bell bottom pants. Hourglass waist suppression. Thought it would be fun in a 'Cozy' way, and no it is not.
