Can I just do a Britney and get a little bit loopy?
See, today marks the day that I vow not to buy anything related to fashion, be it clothes, shoes, bags, accessories, even books. That is, until I have a "real" job. I mean, I sort of do, I'm a blogger gosh darn it! But well, with major life plans for the next couple years (I'll tell you all about it soon enough!), my source of delight, my pick-me-upper will just have to take a backseat. Funds have to go straight to the bank beginning today. DH made it clear to me and I have to agree it really is the smart & sensible way to make sure that we could afford our goals without seeking parental support.
Honestly, I don't know how I'm going to do this. Is there a shopping rehab clinic out there? But jeez, that'll cost us if there was right? I feel like a bucket of cold water was poured over me, and all flighty thoughts have flown away. I hope this won't make me shriveled up and cranky, because shopping is the flame that lights up my being when I'm feeling dark and gloomy! I never turned to alcohol and drugs or slashed my wrists at my lowest points because family, friends and shopping were there for me!
Is this normal? To feel depressed when told that shopping is a no-no? I feel like crying honestly, and well I'm just pouring it all out to you since were all friends here right? I mean, it's not always gonna be good stuff, through thick and thin as they say. Am I boring you? I hope not, I need your moral support...although financial would be helpful, hehehe!
I beckon the Universe to make all our plans possible. With shopping allowance please (whether it be through income generating work or winning the lottery, or hey even both! That's not too much to ask)!!!
On a lighter note, a reader said the last outfit I shared with you was drab. Well, I have to admit, I am a shy person, so I don't have a thing for colors that draw unwanted attention. I like things understated, but of good quality. And I don't mind cheap, if were talking trendy. But I like it when people shake me out, because it gets me looking at things from a different perspective. So here's an attempt at adding color to my wardrobe...
What do you all think? Bring it on! =)
