The other morning I woke up before work with a dangerous combination of YOLO mentality and the shopping shakes -- that jittery, antsiness that overtakes me when I haven't engaged in some middle-class TJ Maxx version of conspicuous consumption. It's like if you deprive yourself of sugar or carbs or Vanilla Dunkaroos -- sooner or later you're gonna just break down and faceplant, Valley Of The Dolls style, into a double-stuffed pizza pillow of your design.
Anyway, while shopping for my husband's upcoming birthday, I ended up finding one thing for him (though he is extremely difficult to shop for), and about four things for myself. So, happy early birthday to me!
|$179.10, DVF x Current Elliot, Saks.com|
I've been sweating this DVF Loves Current/Elliott denim shirt dress for months. It went on sale from $398. When I bought it earlier this week, it was $238. Today it's $179, so I called for a price adjustment and Saks was great about doing that. ALWAYS do that! You're leaving money on the table, people. Don't let shame hold you back! That's $80 I can now spend on shoes instead of wisely saving it!
|$42, Volcom, Zappos.com|
Volcom chambray tank procured! I've been looking for one of these to pair with maxi skirts and little circle skirts. Commence summer of chambray! By the way, am I the only one who thinks of Vokal when I hear "Volcom"? You know, Nelly's erstwhile clothing company? As in when he shouts out "Vokal tanktop on at this point" in "Hot In Herre"? No? Just me?
|$94, Mad Love, Karmaloop.com|
Impulse buying this trippy Mad Love Lippy sweater may be the most shameful part of the entire a.m. binge. Shameful because I really feel no remorse about it at all. It either matches or is a complete and utter rip on my Wildfox lips shirt:
Picked up two Nissa rope bracelets. Because I really need two bracelets that could double as hardware store bits and bobs. By the way, Nissa always has promo codes, so get on that. Karmaloop too.
