shopping ban

Yesterday I decided to live under a self-imposed shopping ban for the month of July. 

I did really well until about 7pm.
My sis-in-law and I decided to go out after work, which meant go to the mall, which meant shop.  I thought I could hold out.  I thought "I don't need anything, I'll be fine".  Then I thought "I can try a few things on, just for fun"...deep in my heart of hearts I knew it wasn't true.  Turns out my heart of hearts knows a thing or two.
So, after a small stumbing block of:
  • 2 camisoles (on sale)
  • 2 necklaces (on sale, buy one get one free!)
  • eyeglass frames (only $5 and a great way to disguise under eye puffiness)
  • head band with tulle bow thingy (full price *shudder*)
  • white blouse (not on sale, but I have a 10% discount card & it came with free belt!)
  • bra (only $14 and a necessity...I count all 'foundation garments' as a necessity and therefore are always exempt from any and all measures of thrift)
  • lovely 'anthropolgie-esque' t-shirt
  • black skirt (it's long, and today I'm wearing it to work as a dress, so it's very practical)
Whew! Now I'm ready to re-instate the ban.
My only problem will arise when above mentioned sis-in-law and I go out together Monday.  We're heading to the La Senza outlet, but as I said, foundation garments are exempt...the real trouble lies in the possibility of finding nude shoes. 

I have been thinking about finding either a beigey nude low heeled pump for a while now...if I find any like these I think it's going to be hard to resist:

  1. Well, you are a model of self control. Where's the outlet? Are you going to Maine without me???

  2. You're so funny. You should shop with me. I can talk myself out of ANYTHING.

    Hey, do you go shopping in Maine??? I lived there for 6 years.

  3. Ha ha! Love your #2 shoe. It would work with nearly everything! (Hopefully it's still available next month??) :)


Quips & Queries all appreciated!
