This is cruel. I just want some nice black skinny jeans but I can't justify half of it because poorfag.
So what has been plaguing your fashion life lately, /fa/?
It's 4000 degrees where I live. Can't dress fashionably when every single fabric makes you a fucking heat casualty.
I just wanna look cute, /fa/.

do they have thrift/consignment stores in NZ?
That sounds correct. I've never been in it myself, but they had some things that looked /fa/ from a distance. I should say I'm not really /fa/ though, I just browse here but I've put nothing into practise
So there's a shopfront on Elliot? Keen to try and find this place on sat but can't see it on maps.
OP I think "The department store" in Taka has some nice non-Levis for less than that (sale on atm).
I might be blind but I went there and could only find one pair of cheap black levis, unfortunately not in my size. Am I a gump and missing something?
Also I have a job but I'm still working on not becoming poor so it'll take a while
99% sure I'm going to fail microecon
I played videogames all day instead of studying
Nah, no point, pretty much the same price as in stores
It's the first street past Dominoes on Elliott street if you are walking towards the Civic theatre.
I have some ascolour pants
Protip: if you like how they fit, you can get two pairs and 3 chalk hoodies as part of their "the deal" promo code when you order online. Good for building basics
They have some sort of in store deal, 5 items for $110, 2 of which are over 30 bucks and 3 of which are under. I was gonna get pants, a hoodie and 3 t-shirts. I don't really need three hoodies cos I have one already
they went up 2 dollars, but fuck man best 5 dollar t-shirt i've ever brought. they fit good, washed them a fair bit and they warp or do anything weird. for a basic t, i would recommend it.
I'm really awkwardly between M and L though, I generally have to try everything on. I'll just grab any ASColour tee, it should be the same sort of fit throughout their brand so it'll give me an idea of what to get

What the fuck do I do
good. I only cop shit if I'm absolutely sure and I know I'm gonna be excited waiting for it in the mail and put it on straight away etc.
dude wtf. I started getting dandruff for the first time in my life just out of the blue a month ago. Shit is fucking horrible. I got an anti dandruff shampoo and it doesn't seem to help much at all.
The only thing that's changed is I moved to a different house, but Idk why that would fuck me up.
I like my weird guys... They are the perfect cut for guys who lift.
>tfw when they cup my butt perfectly
>tfw the teardrop shape of my quads are outlined but not too prominent

They are flattering but not suffocating.
I've been stressed as fuck lately, but it could be anything. In low light, you can't see any dandruff, but if you look closely, it's right at the roots. Shampoo doesn't seem to help. Driving me nuts.
wash your hair with cold water and before you leave the shower, drench it again in frigid as fuck water, this closes your pores and ensures your scalp won't get dried out as you blow dry/ towel dry/ air dry it or whatever.

Shit. I'm, seriously thinking of dressing for grills in hope of it making me more confident and happier. It'll be easier on the wallet too.
What clothing stores are meant to make good quality female clothing in New Zealand? All the recommendations I see are for oversea stores, and all advice websites only talk about male fashion.
I live in Auckland. I'm a student so I don't really want to spend an excessive amount on clothing, though for a staple like pants I would be if it were worth it.
The main issue I have is that I'm short and thin - pretty much none of the clothing I try on fits right, especially not dresses and skirts, although that might just be because I've only tried clothing on at low tier places.
Started working out a few months ago, already feel better.
I do dress for myself currently, but the thing is dressing for others will surely get me more opportunities in life which in turn will make me happier, don't you think?
In reality people aren't really into /fa/'s style and I think I just have to accept that and move on.
As another poorfag NZfriend, I feel ya mang. I don't even live in a remotely /fa/ part of NZ, fucking Dunedin
Yeah but dunedin is so un/fa/ it goes full circle. My mates who went down to study there have all been absorbed into the "culture"
Come smith and caugheys. A lot of the stuff is shit but there are definitely some great things in there, plus it's not ridiculously expensive. Also we've got an enormous sale coming up which goes to 50% off in the second half of it. Because you're thin/short, your sizes will be there while all the average/large sizes will be gone.

Fuck me what do I do, I don't want to lose upper body but I haven't trained legs in ages and theyre still big.
Honestly some people just have big legs. I'm one of them. It doesn't help that I squat but they've always been huge.
I think you just have to forget about it and realize there are some things you can't change. The only person noticing your legs is you, and maybe women but they're mirin not hatin. Just accept it swolebro.

I am not sure why so many bisexual and even gay men, and probably a lot of hetero women and men too enjoy rimming or being rimmed? I have no desire to lick anyone's asshole and even if you do wash your ass with soap and hot water like you should while bathing it's never going to be "clean" like some people think or will claim. Also despite what people think it's not safer sex since while you're probably not going to get HIV that way from licking or being licked down there unless there's blood involved you can get other STDs and various types of hepatitis that way. I got it done to me once by a man I dated, and it was disgusting to me. Yes I had taken a shower and wash with soap and hot water before our date, and the guy did have me shower after our date. Being rimmed is not something I ever wanted to ever experience again. The gross part was when after the man had rimmed me he wanted to make out with me or French kiss me immediately after his tongue had been down there. I am not against kissing men...but yeah I didn't want to do it immediately after he rimmed me. I did kiss him on the lips, and then after I shot my hot cum on his face I pissed, washed up, used some of his mouthwash, and left. I have a gay male friend who also finds rimming to be nasty and had it done one time to him out of 100s of male sex partners and he too found it nasty and never has done it.

My brother's a runway model and I'm far too ugly to even have a chance with that. I was never really jealous of models until now, because now I just feel like the "inferior brother". Anyone else know the pain of being the lesser sibling or am I just alone and pathetic like always?

For some reason this single post made me sad.
if you are in auckland, there are always those biannual sample sales. just gotta catch them at the time. they are always advertised at bus stops in town. last month i was picking up commoners pieces for $25 each, pants, tees, button ups, jackets etc. because you can hustle during those sales.
NZ "deals websites", and stores currently having a sale.
my mate also copped black cheap monday denim for $15 on there
onceit.co.nz (mostly crap but sometimes good)
Area51 ($70 1970 cons atm yo)
Zambesi (unless you are looking for in house stuff, i would just buy your rick and raf online)
Workshop (also have temporary outlet atm, wang, common projects, marc jacobs, in house stuff)
Qubic (closing down for good, sunday is the last day open) 50% all vans and converse. 30% off p much everything else.
Loaded (mostly lame streetwear) but having a huge outlet atm at their mt eden HQ, cheap sneakers etc.
Fabric (their visvim is actually cheaper here than online)
sites which ship to nz, cheap/free
forwardforward.com free shipping worldwide
revolveclothing.com spend $100+ free shipping
urbanoutfitters.com spend $50+ free shipping
asos.com free shipping worldwide
http://tres-bien.com/ its only like $19 nz to ship here, and 99% time its still cheaper than nz instore prices with shipping
actually a lot of online stores are cheaper than nz even if you pay ship, or just go halves with a friend.
list goes on
im sure i could have written more but ya
lurk more etc.

I hope I see kanye
also I don't even know why I'm spilling all of this information because everyone I've talked to in the industry is really really anal about being secretive so I'm gonna shut up now
Yea, they are. Most of the stuff that you arent allowed to say is what goes on backstage and about what will go on in the show, and the date if its not been confirmed to pr yet.
You havent posted anything bad. It may have been an agent or someone whose working with slp. Tickets for slp are actually one of the harder ones to get.

I'm sceptic whether this is a real phenomena. I mean, part of the compatibility between a male/female friendship is the slight sexual undertone, although not prominent or knowingly acted upon. To be honest i've slept with most of my female friends over the past years. That one drunken mismatch yadayada, just to get it out of the way.

i found a way to remove it, epilation, not too shabby
a few downsides are
>it doesn't get the downy hairs really
>it can break off hairs at the skin instead of removing the whole hair
>it isn't permanent and hair has to be a certain length anyway to use it at all
regardless my face instantly looks and feels better hairless
>shit was so cash some girl touched my leg!
#lmao #wow these are the people calling you fuccboi and calling you autistic for wearing designer fashion. People like this guy, who make long greentext stories about how someone touched their leg in class
try epilation like I did, it works better for me
its smoother cleaner etc, my other post had the downfalls though
also it may be painful, but i am used to it, it depends how much hair you have and stuff
i also think the idea is the hair thins over time possibly, if thats not a result you want it may not be for you etc
you could also use tweezers to quickly and efficiently remove the hair if a spot begins to develop - I find that 100% of the time when i've pulled a hair out of it the spot disappears, but you have to either get it early or wait for it to go whitehead :(
