Honesty is the best policy, right?
It happened. I knew it would. I snapped.
Having not bought anything for just over two months, I finally caved on Saturday and bought not one, but two new dresses. I had realised the Terrible Truth; that despite my best intentions and reluctance to give-in to the first world premise that buying something new has a positive psychological effect on a person, new clothes really do do great things for the psyche.
Hear me out!
Without going into too much detail I’ve been having a bit of a crappy time lately (hold the violins). And in trying to regain a little sparkle I’ve been trying to be social and head out and have a great time, which I have! However, going out in the same old same old kind of starts to make you feel same old same old. And so I caved and bought two new dresses. And Saturday night was ALL KINDS of awesome. So there.
I’m not giving up on WMW 2013. I’m still going to attempt to buy nothing, but if I slip up every so often I’m not going to beat myself up. Especially since I’ve realised I never really did anywhere near as much shopping as most of my friends (Erin I’m looking at you!).
If it’s any consolation, the black dress was reduced from $150 to $60 and the other one was $47. So the bank has not been broken. But I realise this is a lame excuse.
Do you hate me? Jo and Chloe, have you caved at all?!
