I recently bought a pair of pants very similar to this that came with a hideous belt which I immediately removed. It never occurred to me to replace it with a leather one. There's nothing sadder than exposed belt loops. My first instinct was to wear a longer shirt but the most interesting part of the pants is the top. Problem solved.
This is why it's important to constantly be reading, researching, talking to people, and hopefully discovering things that were previously outside your sphere of knowledge. It doesn't necessarily just have to do with fashion. Start with an idea "I want to invest in real estate" and from there every waking moment should be spent trying to draw a correlation between everything you see and hear and your new goal. You will never cease to be amazed at how far off and how close by knowledge can hide, patiently waiting for you to go looking for it.

"Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."
From the color scheme, to the throw blankets, to the pillows, to the moldings, to the lack of a headboard (I know I told you last week that I found the perfect headboard but I don't actually like them and have never owned one so you should have taken that as facetious at best) perfection.

I will bet you a MacBook Pro that the next decade will give us a medication for "Technology Addiction".
-distinct and progressive inability to interact with people / agoraphobia
-severely disproportionate sense of self-importance
-anger (especially "anonymous" anger)
-a distinctly pale complexion, almost as if see-through / lacking in all pigmentation
-anxiety (especially in the absence of WIFI)
-amnesia regarding previously innate social etiquette
-severe allergies / hypochondria
If a cure isn't found, societal collapse, brought on by an aging population due to the inevitable lack of procreation, will result in an elite not defined by financial status but, by their ability to "find where you put in the password".
