The Fashion Thief

Meet Kevahn Thorpe an 18yr old straight A student with an addiction to high end fashion outside his parents reach but not his, thanks to a serial shoplifting habit he developed. This story was written by Jessica Lustig for New York magazine. I had to momentarily suspend facebook and other blogs i was reading to read this 5 page long article. I got to say its the most captivating stuff i've read online this year. It portrays how material stuff can lead to dangerous addictions. Kevahn started shoplifting when he was 16 and not cheap stuff mind you, it was either a gucci this or a Fendi that. He received countless warnings which soon developed into short term stays at juvenile homes but this young lad was not swayed by any of it. Catch the full story Here

Yeah, I suppose this might be very interesting to read. It's something like a case study.
How come one can be so addicted...
Well it's a form of adiction like other.
But crazy indeed.
