Today in capitalist-illusion-shattering, the secondhand clothes market is also mostly bullshit (and getting more-so).

So just what does it take to be big on Instagram? (Spoiler alert: hard work, money, determination, and a bit of luck. More-or-less.)

Moody shoes.

The carpet cleaners are coming in, so I had to dump all my shoes in the bath to get them off the floor. Apparently I own a lot of boots I never wear. Go figure, I guess.
