Across the street from the craft store is a TJMaxx. Inside was the $100 Lucky Brand Bella Bag. I did a little mental math (this involves me staring blankly into space for several minutes while I visualize writing the numbers on a piece of paper, occasionally twitching my fingers as I count).
Last year I purchased seven bags. A tan bag for $20, a black quilted bag for $5, a mustard bag for $10, a pink slouchy bag for €35, a tie dye bag for $24, a blue and white canvas bag for $3, and a beige bag for $30. In total I spent about $140 (I just took a guess at what the euro conversion rate was, as I don't remember).
So this is me, hand over my
I may have brought home a few other things from TJMaxx as well (what can I say? off the wagon and over the cliff) but I will hold off mentioning them until I decide if I am keeping them.
This bag rational made me think of my other obsession, the scalloped hem. Currently still not in my closet, much to my dismay. Since July I have been looking and looking. I know what I want, this pair from Queens Wardrobe for $72 + shipping from Korea(?) (frankly I don't know if I even trust that site, their email address under the contact section is a gmail one...)
Forever 21 for $23, and in April, when the H&M conscious collection comes out, I could buy their pair for $18. And maybe later I could grab this pair from Charlotte Russe for $26.50. And by that point I'll have spent $67.50 and I still wont have what I really want.
Such problems. Here is what a wore for my day of 'reckless shopping'.
