Okay, okay, I know what I said last week-- about how I was feeling so virtuous in not purchasing any clothes. Well, it's starting to hit me: my craving for new fall attire is a driving force to be reckoned with. After all, it feels innate to run to a boutique after work and pick up some new sweaters once the weather outside starts getting cooler. I want new skirts, dresses, and shoes. Shoes, oh, shoes... how nice it will be to buy those again. But I can't do it and it's just now getting so hard.
Last night, in the Shoptropolis of New York City, I had to distract myself and make sure I didn't enter the second floor of a department store where all of the contemporary clothes and shoes lie, waiting for their next victim. Instead, I quickly entered, went about my business, and left. Had I given into the temptation of going up the escalator, I can't be certain that the outcome would have been pretty, or Fashion Fast-worthy, for that matter.
Alas, I am here, still purchaseless.
Since I am currently living vicariously through the purchases of others, comment here or email me with any great buys you've picked up recently. I'm salivating just thinking about it.
