money to burn

I couldn't believe my eyes when I spotted this crazy purse at one of my favorite vintage shops, the metallic gold just barely peeking out from behind a few less amazing purses. It's so perfectly tacky and silly, I barely hesitated. I can only imagine what kind of life this purse had before my snatching it up. I imagine some blue haired old lady wearing floor length polyester, hot pink lipstick and too much perfume, sitting in front of a slot machine called Kitty Glitter in some cheesy Las Vegas casino, occasionally reaching into the purse for bits of candy and extra coins. The greedy side of me is sometimes glad that 98% of the population would never be caught dead wearing some of the things I adore the most because it leaves me free to snag them for mere dollars. Now I must get myself to Vegas...

Oh, Ashley. I want your wardrobe and pretty hair! Every time I read your posts, I think how lucky your granddaughters will be when they inherit all your pretty things, a very very long time from now!
