Best Style

December 28, 2009

Ok, just kidding, I bought something...

Ok, so I actually made my first purchase in 87 days on boxing day...I tried to resist but I couldn't pass by this adorable little black fur vest, it was such a good deal!  Originally it was $130 and it was marked down to $30...and it's real fur, which I love :)  It was my Christmas present to myself ;)


So now I am going away on vacation for another two weeks and I think that when I get back in January I'm going to have to change the rules a bit and I might do something like set up a monthly budget for clothes (and then blog about what I end up purchasing or not purchasing).  


The last 86 days of no shopping has been so amazing though, because I have hardly missed it, I've worn things in my closet that haven't been worn in a long time, and I've probably saved lots of money...


Well, I'm off on vacation now...so see you in the New Year!

Away on Vacation

Hello all you lovely people!


I will be away on vacation until Dec 27th and won't be updating my blog while I'm away.  I am still holding up the non-shopping thing though...even through boxing day sales....ahhhh!!!


I'll let you know how it goes when I return.


Merry Christmas everyone!

Tempted at Winners

Ok, so today I went into Winners for the first time in a while and I kinda felt a little like I wanted to shop...but then I just browsed around for a while and that totally satisfied my craving.  I find that one of the things I love about shopping is just checking out the new styles that are in stores - so if you go browsing you can still do that, you just don't bring them home with you at the end.
