Cheaper Than Therapy

I was bad at Nordstom the other day. You’ve already seen the booties I bought but I also got this lace peplum top and delicate gold rings. What can I say? I’d already spent too much on the booties so I needed to make it worthwhile. At that point I was like, heck, what is another XX dollars? (No, I won’t share with you the actual number because I do actually feel bad. But not bad enough to return the items.) Plus, I felt crappy and it was cheaper than a $100 an hour therapist cry session. 


I was drawn to the top mostly because it had lace sleeves, it was cute, and most importantly, it was on major sale. Then my boyfriends mom sent me this cute brown skirt and I knew that the shopping gods were really rewarding me for splurging. I mean, the skit has BLACK in it and I had just purchased a BLACK top with BLACK boots. Heaven ordained shopping splurge if I ever did see one.

It will be a while until I can splurge again but it was fun. I’ve got a few things coming up that are going to require me to actually be really good with my money and not spend any extra on clothing or frivolous things. Except I’ll allow the occasional froyo splurge. It’s cheaper than therapy and tastes better.
