I had a frustrating day full of annoyances, and I was supposed to go to the gym today, but by the time I got home and considered a) how wet I was from the rain and b) how much I did not want to deal with my purple hair "bleeding" down my neck at the gym, I was all "Screw it!"

So...I went back to the Patch quickly today. I'd planned to buy a dress and two other items that I tried on yesterday (and then regretted not buying). I told L about one of these items and he flipped out - "Why didn't you buy them!?"
Unfortunately, the dress had a big rip in the fabric that I'd missed, so I didn't get the "one free" and only bought two. Eh, I'm all right with that.
First, I re-grabbed this vintage wool Lacoste sweater.
Made in France! I'm pretty sure most Lacoste is not made in France anymore.
Okay...here we go. These are probably one of the craziest things I've bought in a long time.

Every spot that could have their classic Medusa head button, has a shiny gold button, trimmed with crystals (yes!).
Which means, "This is to certify that this garment was made by the establishments ITTIERRE SpA In respect dells wanted image stylist VERSACE . This attestation and guarantee dell'authenticita head . ITTIERRE SpA ". Um, sure, okay. Ittierre SpA seems to be a manufacturing company (very high-end).
And what did I pay for these pants of insanity?
Are you in? Or is this a little too hard to revisit? I have to admit, my butt looks amazing in these! Can't wait to wear them.
