cookieOptions = {...}; secondhand rose: 137/ GREY DAYS

Thursday, 31 March 2016


Grey skies are going to clear up, put on a happy face.
My life lately has been a series of grey days, with some sunshine thrown into the mix. I mean that both literally and figuratively. I won't go too much into detail so you're more than welcome to take that statement however you'd like.

This will come as no surprise but the one thing that I can always go back to make me happy is fashion. Shopping in particular has the ability to bring about a sort of euphoric feeling in me. I always feel ridiculous and superficial when I say that, but everyone has their vices. Sales in particular are my guilty pleasure; if I've said it once, I've said it a million times - there's nothing I love more than finding a great deal.

Patience is a virtue, though. I've been eyeing this coat for what seems like centuries now and I've checked up on it in store more than I'd care to admit. The original price tag was a hefty $120 and although I have a great love for this piece, I wasn't about to drop that kind of money at a store like H&M. #sorrynotsorry

So I waited it out. For months. You know what they say, the first markdown is the hardest. I almost pounced on it at that moment but I'm glad I held out. It ended up coming home with me after a grueling couple of months but I only paid $35 for it. It was well worth the wait.

This grey coat is definitely my favourite piece in my closet right now. I love the way it fits and I adore the way it makes me feel when I wear it. I feel as though I can take over the world as long as its on my back. Kind of like a Superman cape of sorts.
