Shopping Ban Over!


April 12th is here!  This means my self-imposed 3 months of no shopping is up.  I was pretty good at following my rules, mostly by staying away from stores.  There were some very tempting sales going on, so it was tough!  Here's the list of items I ended up with since my ban started on Jan 12th.

  • Black flats (worn in today's pictures) - these were legal for 2 reasons:  I had a gift card to Dillard's, and I desperately needed a new pair of black flats.  My other pair was literally falling apart, so these were on my list of cheats if I found a good pair during the ban. 
  • 2 shirts at Loft (one worn here and here, and the other hasn't been worn on the blog yet) - I was using a gift card.  I still have half of the gift card, so I will need to hit Loft again soon.
  • Brown Belt (worn here)- no gift card, but this was on my list of cheats.  I've been wanting/needing a brown belt for quite awhile and hadn't found one I liked.  I was killing time at Urban Outfitters after the baseball game, and before Pub Quiz, and just saw this belt on clearance.  I couldn't pass it up! 
  • Pink skirt (worn here)- this falls into the thrifting category of cheats.  J. Crew skirt for $3.50 - not too bad!
  • I<3fun. t-shirt- I had to get a souvenir from the concert.  This falls into entertainment, not clothing, right??
 So, I think I might be going shopping after work!
