want and have

why now?  why?!?

why when i’m on money lockdown (so i can have bright straight teeth) do i come across such things of awesomeness?  such things that i will now begin to lust over?  why do i find these shoes now??

i mean look at them?  they’re made especially for me (at least they appear to be).  i lust them.  and i believe they lust me back.  oh man.  if anyone wants to get me an early birthday present by all means these would be a good idea! (speaking of, i already tried to talk M into buying me an “early birthday gift” of this gorgeous black and white little KC jacket that we saw at marshall’s.  it was on sale for $50… made it too rich for my money crunch spur of the moment purchases though.  makes me wanna cry sad broke ass tears) 
and yah, in full disclosure, i totally went back to marshall’s 2 days later to buy it for myself.  what? i was going to use my visa so i would get reward points, not a big deal right?  and anyway i ended up buying a dress instead.  it was cheaper so i decided it was the smarter choice.  plus this year i’ve been trying to increase my dress wardrobe and i couldn’t pass this one up, it was so cute.  similar to the one pictured but it is v neck, with a v cut back (LOVE that) and the straps go to all black at the shoulders, oh and the print is a little different shape but it’s big on the top and the same print but smaller on the bottom.  and the best part?  the part that’s ALWAYS a selling point for me?  it’s a london time dress (made by the fabulous maggy london line) so it has pockets!  i can’t wait to wear it to the horse races next weekend!

okay, yes, that kinda defeats my $ lockdown concept, but it was $30.  c’mon?  who can pass up such a cute dress for $30?!?  especially when one only has 3 outfits to wear when the temps exceed 88 and one lives in the midatlantic where one spends 3 months in the 90-100 degree range?  i can justify shopping like this all day.

  3. Those shoes are calling your name – they look comfortable. Maybe they will go on sale and then you can justify the purchase?

    dress is great!!

  5. A dress that cute, with pockets (!), for $30? It would have been a crime not to buy it. Lockdown be damned, I say.

    Have a great time at the horse races! I went to my very first horse race this past spring, and loved it. Your dress will be perfect!
