… I am a girl. I can’t help it.
Damn you, US stores, with your evil, everlasting sales and coupon deals. It’s really hard to not become a shopaholic in this country.
I dare you to try and live in Europe for a while. General costs of living are cheaper over there, but fun-shopping is a hell lot more expensive.
This weekend I was out running errands, looking for some nice new sandals for J (which I found, mind you!) and could not pass up those deals. I really shouldn’t shop right now, what with the move coming up and many more necessary expenses, but I didn’t really spend more than $60 on all three items, so that’s defensible, yes?
1) Take Out V-Neck High Rib Cardigan. (It’s from Kohl’s, unfortunately I can’t find it on their website.) It’s super-cute with jeans or over a dress and with its short sleeves and tailored fit, it’s perfect for the summer.
2) Timbuk2 Laptop Bag. I found this bag for $15 at Marshall’s. It’s a brand item that usually resales for $80-100 and it was just a real bargain find. I had been looking for a sturdy laptop bag for a while, but wasn’t willing to spend a lot of money on a decent bag. I think those $15 are a very good investment though!
3) Speechless Surplice Floral Halter Dress. Seriously, this picture does not do this dress justice (and no, it doesn’t have a brown trim on the bottom. I don’t know why the photos shows it with one. Also, yes, I shop in the Junior’s section. So what?)
It’s so cute and airy and light. I usually don’t go with white/very light dresses, because I am pretty pale-skinned, but with the brown/yellow floral pattern and my brunette hair it just looks very nice.
Have you splurged on anything lately?
