Today was one of those days. I got home from the memorial service (hmm, do you THINK my shopping is ever stressed-related? Someone call Dr.Freud!) and was looking at the blogs and the JCrew and Madewell sites and started seeing things I needed.
But of course I didn't need them. For 2 hours I mindlessly surfed sites and put things into virtual shopping carts. 2 hours! I could have read a book, solved world peace and learned to crochet in 2 hours!
I eventually placed an order for the following things:
The Marina mini-wedge espadrilles in chambray:
The daisy lace mini. How cute would this be. Size up a size and it goes to the knees. I was imagining it and the shoes above with the lovely Nougat London Boho top I recently purchased.
Oh and I was pretty sure I needed this tortoise shell bracelet, too!
So I placed the order, then 10 minutes later, I cancelled it. I love clothes. I would even describe myself as bing mildly obsessed with them!
But I wasn't shopping because I had a gap (though I am pretty sure those espadrilles might fill a gap!). I was shopping recreationally and I was shopping mindlessly. I was shopping because I was seeing things on others that I wanted to be a part of too! Every new sale and rollout does not require my participation and the difference between 30% off and 25% is miniscule and does NOT require a decision of what to buy at that very moment.
