Deep Cuts: Some Shit Is Just Too Expensive

Welcome back to Deep Cuts. Please buy this hot junk that’s on sale so that we can’t.

Pyrite Jewelry Box, $799.95 (was $1,498) Hahaha, oh good lord, you are fucking with me. For twenty bucks, you can make your own using this box and this pyrite, also known as “fool’s gold,” which costs LESS THAN A DOLLAR.

Summer Romance Flower Crown, $4.99 (was $18) You think I'm kidding. I'm not! The two flower crowns I've purchased at Ren Faire's were over $20. This is a steal at twice the price. (Okay, okay, fine. This is for a toddler's dress up wardrobe.)
Madewell Short Sleeve Scoop Tee, $19.99 (was $39.50) This photo of Sarah Silverman looking super dope has been haunting me for the last few months. I feel like we plebes can get halfway there with this T-shirt and an oh-so-necessary peekaboo bra:
Panache Fern Balconette Bra, select colors $39.95 (were $66)
Villard Beaded Clutch, $60 (was $100) Someone more committed to thrifting could certainly find this for less, but who has the time?
Fishs Eddy "Beach Rules" Serving Tray, $10.99 (was $18) What a bummer serving tray! This is the saddest serving tray that ever lived.
Denim Pinafore Dress, $32 (was $46) Don't talk to me about the sideboob "problem" here. It's not a problem. It's a solution.
Sephora Ultra Nourishing Shower Cream Capsules, $7 (were $15) Don't you just love a pod? Remember doing hot oil treatments on your perfectly healthy 12-year-old hair just to enjoy the pod aspect? Let's take it back to the good old days.
