Vintage sequin blouse? Thrifted. J Brand jeans? Thrifted. Ballet flats? Old Navy.
Sometimes in life you find yourself ogling a vintage sequin blouse in a thrift store. It twinkles to you from across the aisles, brightening an otherwise dreary afternoon. Hmmm, you think pensively. Do I really need another vintage sequin blouse? You mentally tally the number of similar items already hanging in your closet, too numerous to confess. You consider the outstanding balance on your Target card, your student loans, the dry cleaning bill shoved in between your car's seat cushions, the promise you made to yourself to save for that vacation you've been Pinteresting for.
The conclusion to your conundrum is unavoidable. You exit the store gleefully, sequin blouse in hand, $6 poorer. Vacations may come and go, you figure. But sequins are forever.
