Let me be clear: I do not go overboard shopping any month of the year. Look through my Outfit Diary – I’m really committed to getting daily pictures up there, so keep an eye out – you’ll see that I re-wear items regularly and just switch up how.
That being said, I put myself on somewhat of a spending freeze this month. I just got back from California, and I leave for Ireland in three weeks (!!!), a trip I need nothing new for. I’d rather save my money and possibly get something beautiful in Ireland. Plus, when I get back in April, a whole new season of events will start, and those will require both fashion and financial attention. So March, being the dull month it already is (no days off 🙁 ), also gets to be a month of no luxury for me, and I don’t mind it.
Or I didn’t mind it…until I went into J. Crew to do a return on March 5. FIVE DAYS IN! It’s like that whole concept of “oh, you’re on a diet, look at these beautiful desserts!” For some reason, the new releases in J. Crew this week are to die for. From their regular items to their new intimates line…come on. Instead of failing myself after less than a week, I decided I’d just share what I would want to buy from the store if I were shopping this month.
