Sooooo…. Well its week one of no spending and I did the complete opposite. I DIDN’T EVEN MAKE IT ONE WEEK. Guys, it wants just one thing either, it was a full blown shopping spree ($200). I have never been so ashamed or embarrassed, but here I am. Okay, I do have a few explanations to defend my actions, and you guys are going to love what I got, but yeah…not a proud moment.
Hmm where to start? Well I guess I’ll start by saying it all happened when I went home to work for the weekend. I work at Michael Kors and we were having an additional %25 off sale items, and I as an employee get another %25 off of the that discount, so you can’t blame me for buying $125 shoes for $23, right? Like come on that’s a steal! You’d be insane not to buy them for that price. Well the Oyster Trent sneakers inspired me to have a completely new fall wardrobe…
While working, my boss came back form her break with an Express bag and news of a store wide, 40% off, sale. That, my friends, was truly motivating. I went the next day and got this oversized sweatshirt dress, with bell-sleeves, and a cow neck collar (originally $70, paid $40). I’m not exaggerating when I say I could live the rest of my life in this dress; seriously the most comfortable, stylish garment in my entire wardrobe right now, no joke. I also got these black slacks that pleat at the waist band, with a tie belt. SO CUTE!
I stopped by American Eagle, got a shirt for $10 and Victoria Secret had 7 for $27that weekend; enough said.
Last and certainly not least, I stopped by TJ Maxx. I will swear by this saying until the day I die, it goes something like “You do not walk into to TJ Maxx looking for something you need, you let TJ Maxx show you what you need.” By this point, I was satisfied with my purchases, but I love TJ Maxx so I decided to check it out. By ‘check it out,’ I obviously mean I actually checked out at the register with $80 of clothing. I got two sweaters (made of blanket material), a pink velvet moto-jacket, and a top. While I did get a good amount of product for my money, it was just shameful how frivolously I was spending.
I guess I can justify my spending by saying I had not shopped for the season yet, and fall is the most essential season to update your wardrobe. All of these items will be used frequently and some even up-cycled for Halloween costumes, though thats a little while away, I already have a few ideas planned.
Until next time with more money, hopefully,
