Being a Poor Teen

     As you might have noticed, most of my clothes are not designer and those that are semi-nice are borrowed from my mother.  Most of my posts include pieces I found in the corner of a Salvation Army or basics I found for under $10 in Target.  Being a teen that is currently without employment (if anyone knows of a job opening I'm desperate enough to do almost anything), I don't have the funds to buy the sort of clothes found on most high end fashion blogs.  However, I think -or hope- that my lack of income lends a little uniqueness to my blog.  Instead of buying my sense of style, I prefer to think that I have cultivated it in those days pawing through bargain bins and standing in front of a closet full of cheap separates deciding what to wear.  The skirt I'm wearing is secretly a size 16, but fits me quite well after a tweaking it with a few safety pins in the back, the tank was on sale at Kohls, and I found the purse at the Korean knockoff stores a few blocks away from my house.
     In addition to leading to my sense of style, my absence of assets leads to much more interesting summer nights.  While other teens are at concerts or Six Flags, I spent $4 on two sodas at a diner with my best friend.  So thank you max for being broke with me and taking my picture.

Also, this is what he would have worn if he had his way.  Thankfully I call the shots on all things clothes related.
