it`s amazing, the only things i`ve bought for myself in 2015 besides food are yarn or yarn-related. (save for two long-sleeve pieces from a Zara outlet damage-sale that cost less than 1000 yen each and i repaired. even foreign brands like banana republic and l l bean make their items for japanese-sized people now, i`ve gotten rather desperate this time around to find sleeves that will fit my monstrously dangly arms!) it`s amazing how much pinterest and polyvore relieve your wildest retail therapy urges. either that or i`ve become more evolved than i`ve imagined... either that or we have so little rental space new acquisitions are not an option. either that or not only do i have nowhere to put stuff, i don`t have anywhere to wear stuff! lol. i was reading about taoist hermits today… i think i may be one. when i get to the level of surviving on pine needle tea, living to nine hundred and sprouting fur i`ll post all about it.
