Shopping Embargo

So, cutting to the chase, I have pretty much shopped 2 months worth of (my) shopping budget. How? I'll tell you how.

Last Thursday, I mentioned how I met I my met a friend for lunch. Back from lunch, on my walk home, decided to check out the summer sales that's started. I figure, I wanted to avoid the crowd that most likely would have had the same idea came this long weekend past.

So was there really a crowd? Dunno, since I went days before. And was it the smartest thing to do? Of course not!

J Crew haul:
Soludos espadrilles (x 2)
Cab & Crystal bracelets (x 3)
Medium bangles (x 2)
Jeanine skinny belt

Gap haul:
Khaki boyfriend roll-up shorts
Casual web reversible men's belt

That was Thursday, June 28th, so technically, it was still June and that would have just made the month way past total write-off, considering the way I went about with it. And there I was, doing (relatively) well at that! For shame, indeed.

Oh and to add insult to injury, I returned to J Crew on Sunday since they made a pricing mistake on the belt (those items are all final sales, after all). And what went out with me along with the belt?

Ribbonstripe boatneck shirt (thanks to her:p)

So to make myself (a lil) better(?), I've made the decision to make this most recent shopping expedition to be the last one for a while. 2 months, for starter, since like I mentioned earlier, that's pretty much what I've spent taking my "budget" into consideration. Hopefully, longer than 2 months...

*grin*... *head bowed down in shame*... *happy sigh*... you name it, I felt it...
