REQUIRED READING: AFFECTION

REQUIRED READING: AFFECTION

Ask me what my favourite book is and – as if I were talking about a lover – I’ll say I just haven’t found it yet. Nonetheless, I’ve read a lot of stuff in my lifetime that have made a lasting impact on my thoughts and just generally who I am as a person.

I thought I’d compile them by “vibe” lol, so this post’s theme is affection.

I’ll try to make it a regular thing, but no promises haha. This week’s Seven Things makes a case for: Calligrammes, Copper tones, and Christy Turnlington!

HOW I SATIATE MY CHAMPAGNE TASTE ON A BEER BUDGET

I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve got “champagne taste on a beer budget”, i.e. my heart just yearns for things it can’t pay for. I wrote a post about secondhand shopping recently, in which I mentioned how scouring thrift shops and online marketplaces for preloved designer items has been a recent obsession of mine. SO this, my friends, is my way of obtaining beautiful pieces from designers I love but couldn’t otherwise afford!
