Trying to catch up

Vintage photo woman runningAbsolutely not complaining – dievca is grateful.
Just a little behind…ok, a lot behind.
What was added:

  • Back to work the afternoon of the “Red Eye” flight, thought there would be three days grace.
  • Caught up with Master – always an important Joy
  • Sold three eBay items while traveling, needed to ship immediately and the printer is out of ink
  • Sold four more items last night, again, no ink.
  • Co-workers begging to cram in meetings before Labor Day.
  • Most important, trying to get to Mom

How is your weekend shaping up?

 


What the Customs Duty paid for~

  • Dries van Noten Teal Crocodile Derby’s $890 for $366 (now $240 – size 38 run more like an 8.5)
  • Dries van Noten Snakeskin Platform Sandals $885 for $646 (sold out elsewhere)
  • Laura Manoogian Brown Bow Pants $350 for $249 (Cheaper elsewhere, but the size was too large for dievca)

The Derby’s were too large, so they had to be returned. The pants will be worn in the Winter – they are a heavy knit.

The Sandals are being worn on this trip with:

  • Eddie Bauer White Jeans $80 for $55 
  • Dries van Noten Floral Tee Shirt  eBay $80

The customs re-imbursement bought:

 

  • Dries van Noten purple knit bra and briefs $220 for $114 and $280 for $109
  • Acne Studios Star Bag $250 for $98
  • Pearls Before Swine Simple Silver Ring Set $250 for $137

Now, before you pass judgement on the amount spent…remember that dievca sold items this month at Buffalo Exchange for $300, the RealReal for $1250, and has 6 items out to Decades in LA. Plus two items have sold on eBay during dievca’s travels = $200.

$1488 bought, $1750 sold + with more listed.

And if you are interested – Master thinks dievca’s machinations for reducing and rebuilding her closet are hilarious. 

“Diversity, dievca, Diversity”


A travelling / traveling we will go~

Ok, its traveling in the mind.
A journey to grow as a Human via education and re-branding.
A journal is needed to keep the ideas and pieces together.
Especially when you are ‘old school’ and work better with paper and pen 🙄  ~
