1. i'm going to be brutally honest here and talk about courtesy items for a second. i tend to get excited about the prospect of clothing gifts arriving in the mail just because i am awesome. or, more realistically, in exchange for including them in my outfit posts. i like wearing new clothes. and i like getting them as gifts. but really, most of time the items i receive don't end up being my favorites. yup, i just admitted it. i am guessing that other blog readers see through the transparency of promoting c/o items that only show up once on a blog and are never mentioned again. that's the terms of the transaction and i get it. it just seems kinda silly to me. i don't really deal with this much since i run a small time operation that is mostly for my own amusement. i ignore almost all of the "collaboration" inquiries that i receive.
2. with that said, how neat would it be if you got a pair of courtesy gold pants in the mail and then you legitimately liked them? yup, that just happened. (well, it was more like a month ago actually.) my original post about these pants is back here and here they are again with more gray.
3. this bag got demoted to yoga clothes transportation duty for awhile, but it is definitely back in regular rotation now. it's not big enough to fit all my towels and waterbottles anyway.
