I made it 17 days into my 24 day shopping ban before my self restraint went out the window and I shopped. Big time.
I have a history of never finding anything I like in NY&Co. so when my Mom said she wanted to stop in there, I though, "It's fine, there's never anything good there, so there wont be any temptation." Only I was wrong - there were tons of cute things, and even worse, the entire store was half off!
Try as I might, I couldn't help myself, I started picking things up, I looked in mirrors, I even tried things on, hoping that they would fit horribly and I could simply walk out empty handed.
The only person I have let down is myself, and perhaps I will find some greater will power and try again. For now, here's what I got:
Military style denim jacket in a dark wash $30 (was $60)
Striped mini skirt $16.50 (was $33)
Pinstriped romper $21 (was $42)
Braided cinch belt $11 (was $22)
Straw Fedora $7.50 (was 15)
Grand total: $86
Darn you, half off sale.
ps. I hope everyone enjoyed my April Fools Day post!!!
(yes, I was kidding about the crocs!)
