Jacket: Ross, cardigan (worn as shirt): Ann Taylor, jeans and boots: Target, necklace: Ann Taylor

One day. And it's as if the shopping gods know that in one day I will return to consumerism, because I received my Lucky magazine and a Victoria's Secret catalog in the mail today.  They're just waiting for me.  Is there anything on your list that you want to rush right out and buy tomorrow (or whenever you finish the challenge)?  Or has this whole challenge tamed your shopping desires?  I've been internet browsing and there isn't really anything I feel like I have to get.  Hopefully that means I'll be a smarter shopper from now on, but we'll see. 

I want to know about everyone elses shopping habits.  When you want something do you just buy it on impulse or do you have steps to ensure it's a practical purchase?  Do you go through a mental list of your closet to see how many outfits you can make with a new item or do you just wait till you get said item home to figure that out?  I'm looking to you to help me refine my shopping skills.

  2. The challenge has been good at teaching me to delay gratification. Those things I thought i wanted so badly at the start of the challenge aren't the same things that seem so necessary now. it's forced me to realize my needs, were actually passing whims.

  3. I like your idea of layering a jacket over a cardigan :) nice, and a long cardigan. Also the wall from yesterday was amazing! ;) the gradient of red to yellow.
