long sleeve draped dress: T by Alexander Wang
motorcycle boots: Big Buddha
After searching forever for a cute pair at a price I liked (as in not $100+ or even $50+), I found those boots at Goodwill for $12. Not really sure why I didn't want to spend much on motorcycle boots but I'm glad I held out. I am weird like that. There are things I won't spend more than x amount on- leggings, ribbed tank tops, hoodies/sweatshirts, jackets, simple pumps, flat shoes of any kind, and handbags. Yet I'll spend such-and-such on the most random things. The concept of budget flies out of the window if I see something I like by Alexander Wang or his T line on sale. I think everyone has a brand they're like this with. But when it comes to other designers it takes weeks, sometimes months, of thinking and the item falling even further in price.
Anyway... this is what I wore to see Fred in the ICU yesterday. Surgery went very smoothly, which is awesome, but he is currently suffering from what appears to be ICU psychosis. As if this poor man hasn't already been through enough. I worry and pray for him. I'm sure he'll be fine but it's really hard to see him like this.
Remember those stepsisters I mentioned? Get this- after an aggressive attempt at pushing my mom out of his life, they are now expecting her to take him home and care for him. By herself. Five words come to mind: You've gotta be kidding me.
Frankly my mom has been a shitty person in the past, to me and to Fred, but over the past several days it has taken everything in me not to react to the stepsisters and the horrible things they say, call them out on their bull, or be really sarcastic. Because I know it leads to getting yelled at and possibly kicked out. What those two have done is much worse than anything I've seen her do and that is saying a lot. They've been bullies and snakes. Sucks that people like this exist, and that I am connected to them in any way. I hope Fred comes to his senses very soon.
