This weekend, I learned that karma is real. It’s real and it’s scary and unfair when it hits you. Except that it’s not unfair because it hits you because you deserve it. It bitch slaps you, really. Let me rewind. I like thrifting. Ok, I love it. So when I pass by a Goodwil that I’ve never been in, I stop. Wouldn’t you? I’m wandering around, not looking for anything in particular when I spot these deep red, short heeled, a little more than ankel height, boots. Correction, boot. A boot that is in my size, yes, but only one boot. After looking throughout the whole store, and asking employees, for the misplaced left boot, I give up. I have a strong suspicion someone hid one boot in order to come back and buy the pair when they could.
Oh, you’re wondering where the kama comes in? A few weeks ago I hid a fur stole in a purse at Goodwill. I suppose karma doesn’t care that when I went back the next day that it was gone anyway.
Moral of the story: Don’t hide stuff when you’re thrifting. It’s not fair. But if you must, because I get that sometimes you really need a pair of really great boots even when your bank account is not currently flourishing as well as you’d hoped, do it well.
Also, hide both boots because it’s already enough that you’re getting really awesome boots for super cheap. You don’t have to ruin someone else’s day.
I like to look casual and candid when taking outfit photos, so of course, the obvious solution is aimlessly walking around, pretending I have somewhere to go or that I don’t have a photographer following me. Very natural, for sure. Just a day in the life.
