Back to school shopping.

Thursday, August 14, 2008

Tony and I took a stroll through the mall on Tuesday, after we picked up my wedding ring from it's rhodium plating date.

I left the mall extremely depressed after realizing three things:
1. I want to go back to school shopping.
2. I could never have too much money to spend at AE.
3. I'm slightly obsessed with Navy, the color, lately.

If I had my druthers and weren't buying lumber, tiles or copper piping, I would collect the below ensemble. (image will be a lot larger if you click on it!)


Specifically these two peices.

Bear no mind that if I were to get what I wanted it would cost more than what we spend on groceries a month! Lol.

This is all very new to me to be wanting clothing again, as I worked for Target Corp in their merchandising women's knit department for 1 1/2 years. I've slowing been going through withdrawl, as I was accustomed to going home each week with at least one new article of clothing to "wear test."

Tony is not going through withdrawl at all, but he sure is annoyed that I am. He's not used to me wanting frivolous things. For evidence, he bought me a journey pendant last Christmas with his unexpected bonus . . . and I returned it so that we could use the money towards the bathroom remodel. In exchange we were able to buy our bathtub, toilet, pipe, vanity light and a ceiling fan {not for the bathroom though lol}.

The last tank or dress or whatever it is....I love it. Need it. Have to have it. Thanks a lot! :)

Yeah...I obsess over clothes ALL THE TIME. Especially since I work in retail and pass the clothing department every single time I go out to lunch.

I'm terrified to see how much I've spent on unnecessary clothing in the past 2+ years!!

I LOVE that last piece!! Isn't it fun being an adult and having to think "which is more logical to buy?"

I say after you finish that fence you treat yourself to that top!

Love it all!! I've been successfully avoiding the mall lately, but I feel a splurge coming on...

Katie said...

Oh fun! I LOOOVE that last top, too! I wish I could wear something other than suits to work. :)

Ooooh..Ahhh... I'm on a shopping spree too. It's not fun when you don't have excess cash to spend. :(

I found your blog through Yara's. I'm in love with the color navy and also with green lately. Cute on their own or together!

Another navy lover here! It's the new black, right? You need these clothes and they need you so that I can live vicariously through your closet =)
