We all live in the shadows of our aspirational selves. Usually my aspirational self resembles the platonic ideal of an Eileen Fisher customer: linen-clad, breezy but mysterious, the host of dinner parties with handmade ceramic plates and nary an elastic chin-string in sight. Today, however, my aspirational self desperately wants to wear this gold, beribboned leather party hat while listening to house music, drinking Coronitas, and reading Wallace Stegner on the couch. All that’s standing in the way of my best life are 80 cold American dollars, which I will, in all likelihood, spend on books and stomach medication instead.
