Okay...so have you been wondering at all how the "No Shopping" has been going?
I have been doing pretty darn well I think. I started off very strong with literally no shopping for almost a month and a half. Then they changed our work event dress code. So all those suits I bought last year are not necessarily preferred. After wearing the same 3 black dresses to several events, my mom said, "work clothes are like food, you need them." So I have been keeping my eye out for work appropriate items here or there.
I must confess, I sort of dove head first off the no shopping wagon and did a face plant smack in to a few flea markets, Zara, and a mad J.Crew sale while in NYC for work. I am not proud, but the past is the past.
I will say it has not been easy with all of the amazing fall items out there. You can follow along as I pin my favorite items on to my "Woulda If I Coulda" pinterest board. But today I am sharing a few items I cannot get off of my mind.
First, this sweet little polka dot number form Savoir-Faire. Good thing they have already sold out of my size, so I will not be tempted.
Two, this O-R-A-N-G-E bag. I cannot get it off my mind. I think it is something I might have to eventually purchase after the no shopping is over. My husband loves orange and it always reminds me of him. I think that is why I am so drawn to this bag. And then of course the opportunity to have a little "JMR" on the bag in gold seals the deal.
Three, this dress from the amazing Lola is just a dream. It would be perfect for holiday parties with black tights and dreamy dinners with my main squeeze in Italy.
Four, this little flower dress just steals my heart every time. I am not convince I would look that great in it. But I do think she would be pretty hanging in my closet.
So there you have it. The 4 items I cannot get off my mind at the moment. Feeling the gimmies! Happy Thursday...J
