What I Bought Today - May 12, 2020

Have I made it a full day of not buying anything? Only time will tell. At the time of writing this, there are still almost 8 hours left in the day and you never know what will happen.

My turban is turning out to be an amazing purchase, although the look with my hair inside it is NOT what I had expected. It looks way more like I have "news" to share with IG if you know what I mean.

NYMag Subscription: $5/month
I think the only thing I bought today was a monthly subscription to The Cut/NY Mag.  I really love reading articles on both The Cut and The Strategist, and I'm happy to support these platforms. I might even start reading NYMag. Anyway, I got cut off reading The Cut's take on the Editor/Scheana issue on VPR and I needed to read it.  So now I'm paying $5 a month for it.


Staud Cruise Jersey Biker Shorts ($70 on Poshmark)
I bought these because I watch Insecure and saw Condola's Thanksgiving set. I knew I needed it.  It's sold out on the Staud website, although there are several other iterations of the Ponte sets in similar colorblocked styles, but nothing with the mock neck and long shorts.

I saw a set on The Real Real, but it was tan with navy cuffs, which was not really the vibe and I was worried would blend in too much with my skin.  Since it's sold out on Staud, I then looked to Poshmark. There was one pair of shorts in a small! No sign of the top but I will continue to be on the lookout.  The shorts were listed for $100, and through negotiation I ended up getting them for $70. And they came with tags! In perfect condition! I'm thrilled and the shorts look good even just with white tops, but I'm still looking for the mockneck matching tank.

Today was a good day for me! I know a lot of my packages are coming on Wednesday, so I'm just mentally preparing myself for the next post.
