Iiiiiiii feel ya sister.

A couple weeks ago I had that burnin yearnin so bad (Spring in LA is painfully beautiful, and sun on my shoulders always makes me think: NEED CUTER CLOTHES) and to satisfy it, I took two bags full of semi-decent, never-wear-em-anymore clothes to the Buffalo Exchange (I wish they had one in every town so I could tell you to go there, but maybe you have something similar), and got a disgustingly small amount of credit for them. But, at least I walked out with a never-worn, gorgeous pair of jeans that someone else didn't want, and enough to treat myself to a burger. It's held me over for a few weeks (the jeans, not the burger), but I know that feeling will be back soon. Especially when I see everyone else marching around LA in all those crazy expensive clothes I know they can't afford either.

But I'll remember your post and stay strong.
