So I’m doing sort of medium-good on the no-shopping front. I’m not buying nearly as much as I had grown used to, but lately there have been some slips. For instance, I bought a Zero+Maria Cornejo shearling jacket (no longer available or I’d link to it) that was 70% off but still not cheap by any means. It’s gorgeous but it’s not the type of thing I can go around throwing down the credit card for every day. Plus, I already have a lot. Too much, even. So in order to restore the karmic (and fiscal) balance, I sent some quite nice pieces I still really love to The Real Real. Like this dreamy this Zero+Maria Cornejo alpaca coat that I saw come down the Fall 2015 runway and swore I would make my own. It’s always been too tight in the sleeves, because I ordered it in the wrong size, but I didn’t ever want to get rid of it because it is just so beautiful. Also up for grabs: this Chanel coat that I (obviously) bought during the Lucky years, and have hung on to for ages even though it no longer fits my lifestyle (plus, there’s all that nasty business about Coco Chanel loving Nazis). And this Vince shearling hoodie, which I know is not cheap, but is an amazing buy. It hurts a little to see these pieces up for sale—they still did spark joy—but it also makes me feel so much less gross for buying that Cornejo shearling.
